Become's Feed Optimization Tips to Improve Shopping Site Performance

  • Merchants should always provide images and categories; missing either component will result in artificially down-ranked listings
  • Map as deep as possible into the Become taxonomy-- GoDataFeed has all of Become's categories built-in to its software
  • The more unique identifiers one can provide, the better. Do not provide false unique identifiers just to populate the columns (e.g., 123456789 for UPC). If no data is available, leave the field(s) blank or omit the entire column
  • Make sure the titles are clear and concise, while important keywords are placed at the beginning of the fields
  • Bid up a minimum of one cent for a quick boost to surpass those bidding at the minimums
  • Provide tax and shipping information when possible. If tax is not charged in one or more states, use “0” to indicate as such
  • Free shipping can be indicated by entering “free” or “0” in the shipping cost fields
  • Logo placement is free on Become! Use it to strengthen branding and to further call out your listings
  • Update your listings as frequently as possible. Inaccurate pricing information will quickly harm conversion
