Anybody else see a lot of spam in froogle lately

 7:11 pm on Jan 9, 2006 (gmt 0)

I did a search and one froogle result came up. I clicked on it and it was just a page of ads. I went to froogle and found all results from this one guy and they were all for $1. There was nothing for sale each page was just a bunch of ads. The titles of what was for sale were popular high paying keywords. Is this what froogle is coming to?

I see the same thing.

Where's the link, "Report spam here"?

I don't even know anyone who uses Froogle - though I don't get out much either :)

Yes, Froogle is turning into a regular spam fest.

I went looking for a named brand product the other day and the top 5 results all said $20.00, when you clicked the links the product was really $29.95.
All the rest of the results on the page were priced at the MFG recommended $29.95 price.

If I had known that it was OK I would have priced all of my feeds at half of what I really sell them at.

I'm noticing Amazon affiliate links in the results.

This is worrying, Im looking at putting in afroogle feed.

So your saying dont its a waste of time?

It's free, and as long as you can easily create a feed and can keep it current, there's no downside.

I'd never turn down a free source of (pretty well targetted) traffic, even if it is only a few clicks per day!

Yeah, it's definitely worth making and updating a feed for froogle. While you're at it, sign up with SortPrice...they're also a free comparison shopping site that accepts most feeds.
