Automatically send data feed to Froogle

Recommended Posts

If you submit a feed and google accepts it but doesn't list the products, the problem is with google. You will need to talk to them to find out why they are refusing it.

I have just found the problem. There is no line or item number on the output file. How can I add these?

A line number isn't something that google requires. You could alter the code to add it but it would be a waste of effort. If you are referring to the product ID, that should already be in the ID column.

Here is what google say.

 

Please make sure you include all required attributes in your data feed. Examples:

 

Examples:

Item Nr. Line Nr.

2 3

3 4

6 7

7 8

8 9

Hey, just a simple question for anyone.

 

We have about 2000 products and are constantly , daily, updating our products. Does Google penalize, or frown about, uploading a new feed, lets say weekly?

 

Thanks and Cheers!!!

No, but items that get refreshed more frequently get more attention from Google. I wouldn't necessary spam Google with updates, but weekly and after a major update should be sufficent. It should also be more frequent than once a month.

Google will not penalise.

They are happy to have more content and latest content.

You'll need to ask your host about that one. It's a function in php and controlled by them.

Am I missing something with this new contribution v 2.3? I had old version worked ok, but I put this new one on my new shop and when I go to admin, the screen except for menu on left_column is blank and it is not showing the googlefeeder in the menu options anywhere. Are the installation instructions no longer relevant? I notice that most of the file settings they used to have in googlefeeder.php that they reference in the instructions are no longer in the file.

 

If i comment out the load of feeder.php in the admin/includes/columnLeft.php everything loads ok.. except no googlefeeder of course.

As mentioned previously, the new version doesn't use the feeder code in admin. I will change that in the next version since it seems to be used a lot for some reason. For now, if you want to run it manually, you can do so by going to the url.

I have installed the googlefeeder into catalog/admin and specified the domain as just my normal domain name http://pureindollgence.com

however, whenever I browse to the googlefeeder.php address I get an internally generated http 500 error saying file does not exist or can not be found.

i.e. when i browse to http://pureindollgence.com/oscommerce2/cat...ooglefeeder.php

 

my domain is set by directory index to go to http:\\pureindollgence.com\oscommerce2\catalog\index.php for all calls to http://pureindollgence.com

strange, i had the old version working fine on prior oscommerce store, and everything else works fine on the new store site.

I should also note I tried setting domain name in googlefeeder to http:\\pureindollgence.com\oscommerce2\catalog and that didnt work either.

The line in the googlefeeder file for the domain shows

define('DOMAIN_NAME', 'www.yourwebsite.com'); //your correct domain name (don't include www unless it is used)

Why are you adding http://?

All that's required for this to work is to setup the one file. There isn't much, if anything, in that file that will cause the error you are getting. You will need to contact your host to see why the failure is occurring. It is probably due to not enough memory for the script to run, or something like that. Your host can look at the logs and determine the reason for the failure.

Had em check, they could find no errors. This one really has me stumped, and like you said it is a simple application to. I have your others Ultimate SEO, Header Tags SEO and such installed and all are great and work fine.

Ok, I finally got them to turn on php error checking and here is the actual error coming from the program:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function tep_get_parent_categories() in /hsphere/local/home/c148783/pureindollgence.com/oscommerce2/catalog/includes/classes/seo.class.php on line 1044

You need to update Ultimate SEO to the last one I uploaded.

I keep on getting the following error. Any idea where I may have some permission issues? I have checked both the feeds folder and my text file and they have Read\Write\Execute with a numeric value of 777.

You made a mistake with the update somehow since that function is no longer in Ultimate SEO so it can't be failing on it.

It looks like it might be a file ownership problem so you'll need to ask your host to look at it.

Yes, I upgraded per instructions by replacing the seo.class.php file, but you are right, I didn't exactly notice but the error is a different one now...

 

Fatal error: Call to undefined function tep_not_null() in /hsphere/local/home/c148783/pureindollgence.com/oscommerce2/catalog/includes/classes/seo.class.php on line 1006

To find the answer to that, go to the bottom of the page, type in tep_not_null in the search box and click go.
