Total feeds/retailers who submit data to Google Shopping?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello folks,

 

I'm trying to get an idea of the number of merchants/retailers submitting feeds/a feed to google shopping. It's part-personal part-work research, but the figures are going to be used to help me evaluate the correct routes to apply to new product ranges and potentially who best to highlight. This also might feed into some work I'm doing that relates to integrating feed data from multiple locations for a data analysis project I'm doing.

 

I would love to try and answer:

 

1) How many onboard dialy?

2) How many onboard with multiple feeds?

3) How many total retailers?

4) How many total feeds?

5) How many click-throughs from GS to retailer product?

6) Which retailer submits the largest number of feeds?

7) Largest feed by listing/product

 

I'm sure some, if not most, of those stats can be gathered from google analytics data however that is usually more limited to the retailers own account and not the broader community.

 

I have some insight into other affiliate marketing totals, at the retailer and number of feeds level, but this information seems to be extremely hard to pin down for GS. I can't even make some assumptions based on total number of registered merchant accounts (stat not publicly available from what I can tell).

 

Can anyone help shed some light on this for me? If not shed light point me in the direction of someone to talk to about it directly?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks for reading.

 

Russ

all such detailed data is likely internal and proprietary
to the company and not likely to be articulated to the
general public.

products in the billions and merchants in the millions
is about as granular a figure that will likely be disclosed
in external documents or presentations.
