Google Merchant product feed replaces Google Base


Google Merchant CenterIf you’re used to logging into Google Base to upload your website feeds and get them indexed in Google Product Search (Google Shopping), you’ll need to visit Google Merchant Center in future.

You can still upload non-product data, Google Base should be used for data such as recipes, jobs and property listings. Your product data feeds and account settings should have been migrated to the new Merchant Center when you sign in using your Google credentials.

It’s important that if you are uploading product data that you wish to appear on Google Product Search you switch to using the Merchant Center immediately. Items loaded into Google Base will now be treated as non-product and will not appear in shopping search results.
