Style attributes for apparel products

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

wanted to find out about style attributes. There are only general attributes in support centre so would like to understand this better.

 

In order to fit in the layered navigation- http://prntscr.com/bdcbep (screenshot)

 

what is the name of the google attributes in use there- shoe style & boot style?

 

So in the xml feed it should look something like

<g:shoe_style>Boots</g:shoe_style>

<g:boot_style>Ankle boots</g:boot_style>

 

 

Let me know if I got that right or direct me to a place i could read about this.

 

Thanks.

there are no such google-defined attributes.

the best likely course is to simply add such data to the description
using standard (english) punctuation and sentences, in plain text,
on one, single, contiguous line, in a well-structured format, that is

both easy to read by humans and parse by algorithms.

for example:
Classic ankle boot in soft suede with a low quarter-inch heel. Shoe Style: Boots; Boot Style: Ankle boot; Silhouette: Low Heel.

adding such information to the product_type attribute,
using standard > navigation breadcrumbs, may also help;
for example:
Shoe Style > Boots > Boot Style > Ankle boot

google has not yet specified how all the left-hand-side features
and lists on google-shopping are created -- despite being asked

many times before.
