Additonal Image Attribute

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

When adding a 3rd or 4th picture into the google product feed google says to place a comma at the end of each image link for example:

 

http://www.superstore4less.com/files/SS/product/extra/large/ge_jb250dfcc_standing_electric_range_ove...

 

we are sending a .txt file. However this is not working correctly when we submit the feed. Should there be a space after the comma and the next link address?

spaces are not needed and are generally not allowed.

be certain the .txt file is in a documented supported format (tab-delimited).

try viewing the .txt file within a browser-window to be certain that no
quotation-marks of any kind are seen; some spreadsheet programs
automatically add quotes simply by saving or re-saving the (feed) file;
by default, quotes are not allowed.

all additional_image_link images must conform to all image rules and
policies and must be crawable by googlebot and googlebot-image

 

how is "not working" being verified? has google been contacted?

generally, additional_image_link images are not required and
google may or may not use the images in a particular context.
