I'm sure your all aware of the new product based SE fron google (www.froogle.com).
Has anyone any idea how you can obtain a listing here? In google.com we are number 1 for <snip> - however we do not show up in Froogle, this suggests that they are not using google listings.
Each product had an HTML page with both a product description and a price in US Dollars
Sounds too simple, eh? You'd be suprised at how many sites unintentionaly hide prices. (prices in PDF files, prices only on a seperate page mixed with others, prices only if you call them... etc etc)
Froogle won't list you if it can't tell what product is for sale, and what the sale price is.

I thought the whole Froggle thing was a flop, and
that it will slowly fade away, and never make it
to the main page.
Maybe im wrong, but 8 months in beta without a peep, does not look good.
Froogle still isn't very good at sorting products into categories. Also, I don't know how good it is at finding products without a feed. But other than that, I don't see why it couldn't go live now.
Therefore making Froogle useless as a comparison shopping tool.

...often it seems to grab whatever USD price is close by on the page...
Hence the reason for the feed.
Froogle is being nurtured for the right moment, possibly to coincide with the inevitable IPO (as discussed in numerous other threads about Froogle.)
