Recommend other things than products

I have implemented target recommendations to show products and it works just fine.

I now want to implement another recommendation not showing products, but other elements (e.g. Categories or Blog posts). How am I able to do that? I guess there must be another feed including all these elements?

Thanks in advance

moritzh76280848​ It would depend on what attributes you are already passing on your feed. If you are already passing attributes like category, price etc you can use them as keys to recommend other items. If you are trying to recommend articles, I would assume that they are not part of the product feed. In that case you could set up a feed with the articles or use mbox data collection to collect the entities.

As documented at Plan and implement Recommendations  you can have data from feeds and page for the same domain. You will need to pass the required entity parameters on the article pages and through the mbox data collection , these entities will be available in the catalog.You can also then use collections to manage them easily.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your quick response. I think that would work for the categories. As you already guessed, the articles are currently not part of the feed. Is it (and how) possible to include two different feeds (one for products, one for articles) for the same domain? Do I seperate them by creating collections for each purpose?
