Setting up correct product for Google Feed?

Postby wood1e » Wed Jan 04, 2017 10:11 pm


I have installed a Google Shopping Feed extension and it is working fine, but... It seems that I shouldn't include 'Configurable Products' in my shopping feed and that I should include only the variants of that configurable product.

So it has been suggested to me that I should change the 'Visibility' of the variants from 'Not Visible' to 'catalog, search or catalog'

I know at the moment if I don't change the visibility then Google Shopping just picks up 404 errors on the variant products, but what I am trying to find out is if this is the correct process?

I actually can't think of another way to getting Google to pic up the variants, but I am concerned if I change all the products to 'Visible' then all my variants will display on my front end of website and therefore create multiple duplicate content issues and other unknown (as yet) issues.

Any guidance would be great.

I'm sure there must an easier way to achieve what you need but it depends on the extension you are using. For example, Product Feed by Amasty has Product types field where you can choose whether to include siple/configurable or other types of products in your feed or not:

The following plugin could help create not only Google Base Feed but it could help in major feeds like facebook, nextag, amazon ads etc. ... nager.html
