    You can submit product feeds to froogle for free.

    Depending on which type of product you sell, froogle can range from useless to excellent. The main thing being that it's free :), and joining up can't do you any harm.

    If you need any help with signing up or submitting your feeds - just ask :)

    Hey, don't knock it. It's a good way to get on page one of google since they do list froogle products at the top of serps for products. If you do it right, it could help when you're not there organically. Mine are and I do get hits because of it. If you're selling a good product at good prices, you will get a sale.

    Don't listen to this muppet.

    Have a look on Froogle.com and browse around. You'll get an impression of what it is.

    It's like PriceWatch.com...basically a product comparison search engine that focuses on prices. Damn you're cute.

    Always such nice comments.

    Anyway, for information on what Froogle is I would go to the source first: https://www.google.com/froogle/merc...froogle/merchants/home?gsessionid=k6srhJGb-X0

    Contrary to mr negativity, we see about 30% of our traffic to our store coming from Froogle. It works, it's great, it's easy to setup a feed, and best of all it is FREE.

    I think google has kinda ignored froogle for a while. My ecommerce store used to get a bunch of sales from froogle but in the past few months we haven't received anything

    Ignored how? Can you be more specific? It is still active, and still works.

    haven't really found froogle useful. I used to search on pricegrabber instead.

    I've been uploading products to froogle for two weeks...both by ftp and their new online method (through website)...and nothing has been happening. They are still running my same 30 products I uploaded a month ago. But i agree with the positivists here...it really is wonderful. I get 100 visitors a day just from froogle alone. It's way cool!

    Can an affiliate site be listed in Froogle if they don't actually sell the product them selves?
