If There is no Google Base feed for your store. This generally means:

- your store is too new (less than 4 days old)

or

- You are using your eCRATER store URL in another Google Base account and as a result we are not feeding your products to Google Base. You must remove this second account if you wish eCRATER to handle this.

See http://dev.tomthedeveloper.com/googlebase/ca/

Google Base Competitor Analysis
An application that Google Base providers can use to determine how their prices compare to the prices of similar objects in Google Base. It also shows some in depth details on competitors items not normally seen on Google Base Search.


How do I use this tool?
For More Information on how this tool works please see the help pages.

Why Use This Tool?
This tool works just like the normal Google Base Search or Google Product Search but provides you with more detailed information on what is being submitted to Google Base. This gives you invaluable insight on how to optimize your items for better Google Product Search rankings and Google Web Search OneBox product results.

How Do I Implement My Findings
Changing your feed should always be approached with caution, simply copying those you deem to be your competitors is not always a smart or viable option. Not everyone who lists within Google Base/Google Product Search follow the policies and regulations set by Google and by blindly copying these listings you too could be in violation and face disapproval. This is why TomTheDeveloper can advise the best course of action for you and your feed. Using this tool is only the first step in improving your feed quality and tackling your competitors, to find out more contact us or visit our services page.

PRODUCTS NOT UPLOADED

issues with not inserted products eCRATER will show additional information about these errors.

Starting Sunday 10/11/09
All stores with Google Base errors will be able to see this information like( as in here's an example) -

2- Prohibited word in attribute: feature
2 - Prohibited word in attribute: brand
399 - Prohibited word in attribute: description
2 - Prohibited word in attribute: product_type

This means there are 2 listings with errors in the "feature" attribute
in other words what the seller put as a value is incorrect and not accepted as a feature.

This means there are 2 listings with errors in the "brand" attribute
in other words what the seller put as a value is incorrect and not accepted as a brand.

This means there are 399 listings with errors in the "description" section of the listing - in other words what the seller unacceptable stuff in the description area of the product listing ...
Promotional texts is not allowed,
It is also not allowed to include shipping,
tax information in the title, description.
It is not allowed to include policy information in the description, etc.

This means there are 2 listings with errors in the "product_type" attribute
in other words what the seller put as a value is incorrect and not accepted as a product_type.


OF COURSE - YOUR specific reasons will NOT be exactly like this EXAMPLE. Every store is different and will have different issues.
