Google Content API for Shopping
You need to get "whitelisted" by google. Even if you have had a base/product account in the past. Here is the link: http://support.google.com/merchants/bin/request.py?contact_type=content_api
It took less than 24 hours for me to get a reply. Once I did, it worked flawlessly.

after setting up the attribute mapping, and all the settings seem correct in config, this extension does not seem to want to add any products to google, with the total lack of support for this app, I'm frustrated and disappointed, spending valuable time on such a basic process is causing many issues to my site

Just installed this on 1.6.2, and I'm getting the same issues as everyone else. I go to submit a product and then see the "Google Shopping synchronization process is running" message, which doesn't disappear. If I refresh the page, it is gone, but there are no products that have been added to Google Content. I REALLY would love to be able to get this working ASAP. Any ideas?

If you were able to add products to google base prior to Google Content 1.7, then check your actual google base settings on google, under 'tax and shipping' and make sure you have both specified.
Google just started enforcing the shipping method.
And with magento google content 1.7 the actual adding process happens in the background--hence you won't see any confirmation or errors (I know about the no confirmation part, but not sure if even errors won't show)
If you're new to google content, and never used it before, there are a lot of requirements that need to be setup.
Nevertheless, with 1.7 even though there is no confirmation, if you have your google content attributes mapped correctly with proper data, then it *does* add the products (even though you don't see a confirmation; you'll only see a message "Google Shopping synchronization process is running" while it's running--when it disappears, that means it's done.)

I have the same issue, doesn't do anything more then "Google Shopping synchronization process is running" nothing else happens.
Any fix for this?

Google Product Category and product type atributes should be configured in each Magento category instead in attribute mapping. (It would be lot easier to manage, as at the moment, If you have a shop with products in different google categorice, you need to define the product category as a attribute in each single product)

The product “product name” hasn’t been added to Google Content.
No products were added to Google Content
Please suggest any ideas on how to get this working

Completely broke up my store too. Interestingly, i found this out http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/feed-manager-version-1-1-3.html Sends feeds to Google, Thefind, SortPrice, Bing, Shopzilla, Shopmania, etc. They create facebook stores too. ALL IS FREE. Really happy with it.
