Google Shopping Invalid URL
My google shopping feed expired, I forgot to update it beforehand. Now when I upload the exact same shopping feed manually one of my items is being disapproved due to an invalid URL even though it worked perfectly well before and I have tested the URL and it is perfectly fine.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am losing business fast

generally, do not mix methods of upload --
such as using the api and manually.
try checking the manually uploaded file in a browser
to be certain that quotation-marks or other symbols
are not within the feed file.
a url that works in a browser may not work for
googlebot or at the time of googlebot crawls.
so, be certain that the webserver was operational during
the time of google's crawls and was responding with the
proper http headers, and the item in the products-tab of
the merchant-center is identical to the item being flagged
and the claimed website url settings.
the webserver's log files may offer more information.
otherwise, google may be contacted here --
even one single item, that is violating a single policy,
can trigger a disapproval or suspension, at any time.
