I average about 10 a day, yesterday I had 38. Let's hope sales follow. I'm still converting better through regular Google search than I am through Froogle. Anyone else?

Comparing last Monday to yesterday, my Froogle traffic tripled.

How do Froogle referrals show up in your logs?

Anyone placed tracking parameters in the Froogle product_url? Do they even allow it?

I've gotten 3 sales in the last week from Froogle referrals resulting in considerable revenue. It is a busy week but it's well worth my time!

Great idea!

I know we get some orders every day from froogle referrals, but it would be nice to know the exact numbers.

I have had tracking urls in froogle for some time now, but they've only started getting decent traffic lately, and just in the past week have been getting some sales. Its interesting that so far the froogle buyers have actually come to my site through the links on the top of the main google search page, not from the froogle search pages.

Something I have noticed is that the referral information can come in two formats:

http:// froogle.google.com/froogle?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&tab=wf&q=CATEGORYHERE&sa=N&start=10

http:// www.google.com/froogle?q=KEYWORDSEARCHHERE&scoring=p&cat=577&sa=N&start=10

The second format really stinks because many of the stats programs don't catch it as a Froogle referrer. I'm sure the stats programs can be updated to look for "froogle" in the string but I can't quite figure out how the referrals are coming from two different strings. The different ways I search using froogle all come up with the first referrer format...but I am seeing plenty of the other variety in my logs.
