We are looking for an experienced developer in XML / MySql / PHP to improve, test and deploy our product feed to Google Shopping (aka Google Base, Froogle). We currently rank very poorly on core product based searches and are looking to leverage a developer with existing knowledge and skills of the google base platform. Our current feed is dynamically generated into xml and sent to google every day. It shows no obvious errors and is amongst the most detailed of all our competition. Our poor rankings are a mystery.
This project is all about IMPROVING our existing rankings on google Base. We don't need any help in creating a first time feed to gbase, our feed is dynamically created daily into xml, from our mySQL product database, and picked up daily by google.
We are not (to our knowledge) making any 'simple' errors with our feed construction or format. The google base interface reports 0 issues with our feed.
This project will ONLY be awarded to a supplier that can demonstrate ACTUAL experience on IMPROVING gbase feeds. We are expecting advice and consultancy on the items within our feed, placement, additional parameters, etc.
Finally: we don't believe this is a price / product issue, but a technical issue in the way google matches / ranks listings.
