How to optimize xml feeds?

[ Edited ]

Hi ,

I generate a feed using a plugin on my magento site. I downloaded the xml generated and  optimized "title" and "product type" attributes using simple tools. Now, wondering how do I update my optimized feed to merchantcenter as updating the current xml might overwrite my optimization in 24 hrs (scheduled XML generation). Is there a way to optimize xml feeds generated dynamically?

 

Thanks,

SK

a best-practice is for any such optimization to be done at the source.

in this case, the source is the website's landing-page content --
changed within the e-commerce platform-system -- not the feed.

the data submitted should normally match the data seen by users.

yes, any manual change will normally be overwritten by any automated update.

depending on the change, a feed-rule may sometimes be used;
but this is suboptimal in most cases, and such changes are best

done at the source of the data, within the site/e-commerce system.
