I've been submitting monthly since jan 24, 03. I keep hoping that the referrals will improve but it's bad.

Could be that my product is searched for by a totally different buyer demographic which doesn't know about Froogle yet.

My site is well indexed but I am still getting nothing from Froogle. It'll probably take a while for it to catch on.

45% less than during christmas season. Maybe worse listings, maybe less people using Froogle. Don't know, had no time to check the first thing so far.

It's not substantial. But NOW many of the queries return along with the main Google results. I think this is key.

Another is the factor that it is still restricted to the US and doesn't show up on the main page of Google (as a tab perhaps?) yet.

Lots of products, good rankings but no referrals.

In 2004, 3% of actual sales are from Froogle. Its a shame the fraudsters are using Froogle more than legitimate buyers.

Same here

When the froogle links where on the Google home page and showing at the bottom of the SERPS i was getting some good traffic, but now its down to one a day if lucky.

Its a shame the fraudsters are using Froogle more than legitimate buyers.

Have to agree with sun818 on this one, for something so new and supposedly still in BETA, its full of trashy Spam feeds already.

I was referring to buyers trying to place fraudulent orders, not about the quality of the listings.

Do users typically use capitals when searching for your product?

I'm getting a lot of traffic, but only a couple of sales so far.
Currently: #5 referrer at 2.8%, just under 100 referrals a week.
