1. Select the channel(s) to collect product data from. Optionally, define URL rules to specify which areas of the sites to collect product data from.

2. Next, paste a product URL into the "Test URL" area, and click 'Test' to review the metadata that would be collected for your product:

If the "Name", "Description", "Image", "URL", and "Categories" fields are not populated, at the least, please refer to open graph tagging documentation, and schema.org tagging documentation. BlueConic supports metadata coming from either method, and can also collect metadata from other areas of the page. 

Custom metadata fields can be added by clicking "Add data field". For example, if your products have a typical gender association, or are tagged based on associated brands, influencers or sources, this data can be used in recommendations placement filtering.

3. There are a few algorithms that are based on a lookback timeframe, for example "top products". This can be configured based on hours or days here:
