Automated Shopping Data Feeds
Typically, shopping feeds are manually updated every time a product attribute is modified such as, price, color, description, etc. There is a more effective alternative to the cumbersome task of manual importing, that’s the good news. WSM has developed a shopping feed solution that will automatically create, manage and upload nightly the most current product listings via a customized data feed to Comparison Shopping site Google Product Search. Taking advantage of automated free shopping data feeds will allow you to:
- Increase visibility in organic search results that include Shopping Results
- Capitalize on huge volumes of daily site visitors
- Maintain up-to-date product listings
- Save time and resources that would otherwise be spent on manual updating
By the time your site goes live you will automatically be set up with a data feed for TheFind and Google Shopping.
