After thoughts to previous message - Google Base... it can still work?

Google Base - Fire the person responsible for the program- then fire next two that you hire- then think about it - why this (below) never loads in Google- I know its yahoo competitor (not anymore really) but start small? I mean you cant even figure out how to load this or you don't want to either way - that's the issue... Just sad that you doing so well elsewhere but you support Structured data by microformats.org and schema.org instead of doing your own thing.

 

Select "Enable" to let shopping comparison engines and other third-party sites download your catalog of products. We'll submit a link to these files to Google Base and provide other shopping comparison engines with access to the files. Select "Enable but do not syndicate" if you wish to enable the XML files, but do not want the files to be sent to Google Base or other shopping comparison engines (for example, if you'd like to manage your own product feeds). The files will be updated each time you publish your store or catalog.

yahoo-commerce should help to first convert the data
and then submit the data to google on your behalf.

assuming this is a yahoo-based store -- the best likely course
would simply be to contact yahoo-commerce-support directly:

I'll use the 'bad word' Apple- you click it works - Google got too relaxed - that's why Google base is not working - make it you click it works - I spent days searching for answers and they are there don't get me wrong someone put an effort to spell it out for me- but finding it - man i tell you... do Apple and I'm happy...

Forget third party - loaded feed (after going through pain of formatting it) for a while - I came back few years later it doesn't load - errors- i know what they are i can fix it but why - why not keep it working the way it is and add new features? -LOL - are you the person responsible to comment or you are actually make a difference?

google may be contacted directly here:

a few years ago, a yahoo-store-feed could be submitted by the merchant;

currently, yahoo typically handles the conversion directly or indirectly on

behalf of the merchant; since, each update to the store details or physical

inventory requires another update to the feed.

If it was more than 50 links to look at I would consider it - only 6 doesn't work for me - Google done great job with webmaster it still working- Google analytics is omg - Page speed hmm somewhat- Adsense, well its the money totally cool love it - haven't been to adwords for a while don't know- but Google base is a shame...

Then i just remembered there is Google wallet - what happened to that? I know its like Microsoft at some point you just out of ideas and not all multi million dollar investments work but why do i have to suffer when you shaking things down in my personal time and effort? I tell you what if its too complicated it will not work - that easy - simple makes it go - and that what you were in the beginning please go back to it.
