Just “having” a feed won’t cut it. Shopping has become an instrumental part of every retail brands marketing arsenal but quality of data feeds still remain a problem. Issues that face marketers are:

  • Lack of dev resources to carry out product feed creation / always bumped to the back to the line
  • 3rd party sites (magento, demandware etc) feeds are not tailored to Google requirements
  • Product feed isn’t customized with google product taxonomy in mind
