Default Data Feed questions

Hi Mike

questions for you.
[list=1][*]Are the feeds blocked for Google? The reason that I ask is, I have 9129 lines and I am getting this message from Google "We couldn't understand the URL you submitted. Please check the format of your URL." but when I load them into the debugger and then search the image is there.[*]Mike, is there a program that you can suggest because I/we have a bunch of thing like this " in the data feeds, and before I can post an updated feed I have to spend most of the day cleaning?


Thanks
Dave

Hello Dave,

The data feeds just have standard html codes to be readable over various platforms. This is standard practice to ensure that the feed can be read without errors, because csv files are generally encased in double quotes and separated by a comma, other instances of these characters must be escaped with these html codes.

PHP Code:
, equals comma
&quotequals double quotes
&ampequals ampersand 
See this site for other conversions: http://www.ascii.cl/htmlcodes.htm

Most any scripting language like PHP, html can decode this information for you, if you've ever seen an html web page with " or & in the coding, the browser would auto decode it and show " or & as required.

Also please note the affiliate data feeds do not have the needed information for Google Merchant. They require many other fields like UPC, Brands, Gender, Weight, Size, Color etc.. that information is not available in the affiliated data feeds.

Thanks Mike, let me see if I have something else that will convert the feed did't know that.

on the Google side, it not about the fields I am working around that part, but I am having issues with the url links.

because Google cant understand this link

item ID: CNVELD-NOBT-W41-PR

http://images.sextoysex.com/ELD/CNVE...b556137b36.jpg

but if I search that link just in my browser it works just peachy, that's why I am wondering if there is blocking? And the issues is on all 9129 lines on the spreadsheet.

Hello Dave,

The image link is for hot linking only and should not be used to download the images. The site sextoysex.com will auto block any IP that abuses the server by trying to download many images at a single time.

I'm sending you an alternate url to use by PM.
