The Product Collector Connection collects data about your products and stores it in a BlueConic product store that can be accessed by dialogues making use of Product Recommendations.
To set up the connection, click "Collect data from your channels."
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, the webpage may not surface product information in a supported format. BlueConic supports:
- Schema.org Microdata or JSON-LD
- Open Graph meta tags
- Regular meta tags
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, you can use this data 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:
