Get Found on TheFind.com with its Expanded Datafeed Template, UpFront Program

GoDataFeed is happy to host Jordan Keffer of theFind.com, one of the Web's best free comparison shopping sites, to let you know exactly how you can:
  • Enhance your online visibility
  • Update your TheFind Feed according to its new feed specifications through GoDataFeed
  • Increase your traffic by an average of 10 percent, just by joining their UpFront Program

TheFind's New Expanded Feed Specifications
TheFind's datafeed revisions lets merchants include more details about their products, through its new "highly recommended" attributes, to improve search relevance and performance. The new format includes new attributes like SKU, UPC codes, Free Shipping, Category, Color, Brand attributes and more.

TheFind also includes a number of Product and Industry Specific Attributes, so if you sell Electronics you can now include product attributes like Format, Battery Life, Display Type, Screen Size, etc... Or if you sell Apparel, you can include details like Age Range, Material, Shoe Size, Sizes in Stock and more.

While these changes are currently optional, we highly recommend you take advantage of TheFind.com's expanded datafeed format to enhance your visibility. GoDataFeed already provides the new TheFind template within its control panel, simply setup this feed through GoDataFeed to take advantage of the new expanded attributes.
