Google Product Feed utility
for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2

This easy to install utility is used to create a product feed for Google (and any other site that can use a Google product feed file) to aid in your store's ranking in the search engine.

Versions are included for my Extra Product Fields version 3.0 (which adds information to the product description) and for my Protected Images with Multiple Images per Product (which changes the location of product images) contributions as well as a version for standard osCommerce. All included versions are compatible with the category status contributions and with the Multiple Sales Per Product and sale begins date contributions.

This has not been tested on osCommerce 2.3 (our site uses RC2A) but as long as none of the main database variables for products have been changed it should work.

Google Product Feed Utility wdepot 18 Aug 2011  

I've made some minor revisions to the feed utilities that are designed for use with the Extra Products Fields 3.0 and/or Protected Images contributions.

Since Google now wants an image link for all products the utilities designed for use with Protected Images now link to the no picture image whenever the product does not have its own image.

Google has added a Google Product Category field to their feed specification so the utilities designed for use with the Extra Product Fields contribution now use the Product Type in both the product_type and the google_product_category fields of the product feed. It will NOW also correctly convert the right arrow used by EPF into the greater than sign used by Google. I just found that I had missed a # sign in the version posted a few minutes ago.
