|I've now got Ecademy marketplace listings feeding automatically into Google Base, Google Blogsearch, and now EdgeIO.|
EdgeIO was all pretty easy to work with as we already use Tags extensively in Marketplace, generate RSS and ping the major Ping Servers. I just added a "Listing" tag to the RSS and added EdgeIO to the Extended Ping list. I've added a couple of tags for the location, but I've hit the usual problem of USA based services not handling UK addresses very well. What I should be able to do is the same as for Google and just use an arbitrary address string and let a geocoder service figure it out. The main problem is that we have a very good postcode scheme in the UK that is accurate to a few hundred metres, but it's different from USA Zip Codes.
