    All Target datafeeds tracking to dead products
    Is else anyone seeing their latest Target datafeeds tracking to nowhere?

    And are the sales being tracked?
    Or is this a Santa gift to the corporate welfare fund?

    Target=major brand merchant, which means they're controlled by some Linkshare AM intern trying to learn the ABC's of mass advertising. That advertising courseware doesn't cover any responsibilities when shoppers click on the Ads or feed links. Sales are incidental happenstances in an advertising mindset and always cured by throwing more traffic at the problem.

    Target's datafeed is one of the worst I've seen. I've reviewed it several times this past year and there's always a huge number of out of stock items listed in the feed. Until they fix that I won't use it.

    I, also, do not like Target's out of stock items in their datafeed but there are enough valid links to bring me $100/mo or more at a cost of $5.00/mo so I'll stick with them

    I just got my first nasty email about datafeed being outdated. So I guess it is time to remove Target. I do want my customers to come back!
    No repsonse from the Target AM--they must be on break!

    All,
    We're working with Target to address the product links that are leading to error pages.

    The error page issue is a result of out of stock products that should have been removed from the Target feed. Target is working on cleaning up the feed so this issue will be addressed.
