Creating XML Shopping Feed for an Ecommerce Product Site


Here are simple steps to make your ecommerce site WebPages indeed by Google and other major search engines

Please note: Create your URL search engine friendly using product names, avoid stop characters

(1) Create RSS feed using http://www.toucanmultimedia.com/rssmaker.php

(2) Save the file as ecommerce_feed.xml (This will tell the search engine that the feed is all about ecommerce product page)

(3) Add the ecommerce_feed.xml to Google Webmaster sitemap https://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemap by logging using Google account, same with yahoo site explorer

(4) Configure the XML shopping feed.xml to feed burner http://www.feedburner.com and it will look like http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/SEOPodCast

(5) Integrate the XML shopping feed with an image or a plain text link from you site so that your visitors can subscribe and comeback when they need, by this you can expect more returning visitors, another advantage is entire product pages will be indexed by major and local search engines and even feed readers / finders.
