When you copy the google category taxonomy for any given item, dose anyone know if the "quotation" marks are to be copied over to the Google Category in my Homestead Storefront. The example shows without, but then google displays it with them?

Next question is do you use the "text" or "xml" versions when putting in a category for Google Taxonomy in Homestead Storefront

Hello Russell5785,

You will want to add the Google Category with the "quotations". I know the way it copies over from Google's list of categories is a bit tricky that way. I would suggest that you copy over the category name into a program like Notepad and remove the quotations if you use the same category for a lot of times (I know I did).

To answer your second question, it would be text.

Let me know if that helps I personally stopped using Google Merchant Center when they made it a paid service and every single color for jewelry became a unique product (I have about 200 ish on my Storefront but that came out to just under 11,000 lines of unique products in excel) >_<

Best of luck and sorry for the delay in getting you a reply.
