(a) be certain there is only one data-feed registered with google;
use the same registered data-feed for all re-uploads and updates --
use the same registered feed for all changes, deletions, and additions.
generally, never delete the registered feed,
unless a person at google indicates to do so.
(b) since processing may sometimes take 24-72 hours or so, the feed
should be resubmitted approximately 3-5 days before expiration --
or, whenever a change to inventory or the website occurs.
for a feed submitted today, 2015-03-17 is an invalid
expiration_date value and no such items will process --
if all items have that date then, zero items will process.
expiration_date should usually be 25 days or so in the future to account
for any issues with the feed -- otherwise, simply remove expiration_date
altogether from the feed and use the account's 30-day default.
generally, there should be no need for expiration_date unless
a particular item is scheduled to expire early (before 30-days) --
such as for an expected inventory shortage.
