Google to build catalogue data for products

No primary category set

Google are to follow in the footsteps of Amazon and eBay and start to build catalogue data for Google shopping product pages. Google’s product pages consolidate all the information and images that they have about a particular product and what accessories it requires or ships with. The aim is to improve these pages to become a definitive resource using manufacturers’ own product specifications.

They intend to solicit information from manufacturers though an intermediary, Edgenet. Edgenet’s Ezeedata service will enable manufacturers to submit high-quality product data and images to Google.

Edgenet tout the service as the way to “Optimize and certify your product data for search engines and comparison shopping engines like Google and improve product visibility and sell through”. What Google didn’t mention is that the service appears to come at a cost of $.03 to $9.99 per product per month.

  1. If you link a gmail e-mail account to your website I suppose you can use google friends connect to promote your blogger blog once you respond to customers emails using google, but does anyone know if you can use googles gmail to create a mailing list for a website? It seems to me a good idea to use google, but will this help with backlinks for your website, blog? Does anyone use googles gmail for this purpose?

  2. Can anyone advice me on how many urls to put in an e-mail signature? Should you just put your website or your website and blog?
