Hi,

 

Getting an error in google merchant centre 'XML formatting error' when trying to add a product feed from woocommerce via YoastSEO. Can anyone help? 

 

I've spoken to the hosting guys and had the URL excluded from the cache and CDN... https://www.stocktons.co.uk/product-sitemap1.xml

 

Thanks,

Ash

A sitemap is not a valid Google Shopping data feed, I recommend Googling how to connect WooCommerce to Google Merchant such as using tools, plugins etc...

 

YoastSEO is not a data feed but a sitemap for organic search results.

Hope it helps.
