Optimise the categoristion of the offers in your catalogue by opting for

self-categorisation !


LeGuide.Com now offers a new way

to link your offers to categories (see below).


The optimisation of a catalogue calls for an efficient categorisation of the offers on our sites.

To achieve this, we recommend entering as precise a category as possible in the category field. You can enter one of the categories displayed on your merchant site but we recommend that you use one of the LeGuide.com categories.


However, for an optimal categorisation, it is recommended to fill in the category field of your catalogue with the LeGuide identification code for the appropriate category rather than the category title.  This is the self-categorisation system.


To this end, we offer you the LeGuide.com thesaurus (see below).


Using the self-categorisation method

To fill in your catalogue's category field, just fill it in with the following character string : « leguide#xxxxxxxx » in which « xxxxxxxx » represents the LeGuide identification code for the appropriate category.


Reminder: an offer can only be associated with one single category.
