the left-hand-side category taxonomy lists on google-shopping
are not necessarily directly from google_product_category values --
the list is created automatically and dynamically by google from
various sources including product_type or google_product_category,
indirectly via title, and description, information derived from user's
searches and search-histories, and many other sources.
note that product_type may be used to include such exact taxonmy
values, using proper > delimited breadcrumbs; however, using such
exact taxonomy values within a title or description violate the policies,
so should never be used.
at one time, google exposed their shopping-search-api -- so the category's
probability-distribution could be inspected and seen to grow over time, as
more merchants submitted items of a particular category, search histories
accumulated, and google auto-generated facet-buckets for a category-list;
however, that api is no longer available and the internal details were never
fully articulated by google publicly.
that said, google has yet to publish exact details concerning their
left-hand-side lists -- despite being asked many many times before.
