Having said this, I hear that GoogleBase is the new invention to handle all datafeeds. When you upload your GoogleBase formated datafeed to Googlebase, the products will get listed on both Googlebase and Froogle. Ok, this is all nice and handy.
My problem is that I have been trying for months to successfully have the products I was successully listing on Froogle get Approved on GoogleBase. The upload work and suceeds per the Googlebase upload page. The product listing get approved, then 24 hours later, they get disapproved. I have contacted Googlebase and received response. None of which address why the items were disapproved. One response did say it was their mistake. Ok, it is all beta, so I try again. Same thing, all get disapproved.
I do see products listed in Googlebase and Froogle and am wonering if anyone has a successful datafeed going to Google base and the products being successfully listed. I went over their terms of service, data feed formats, etc. And have no clue as to what the aloof Googlebase wants from me.
I want to give it one more try before I punt.
Also, any suggestions on other type merchant sites to consider besides Froogle? I use eBay already.
Just thought I'd ask for recommendations.
A few months ago I would get many referrals from the listings and now I see very few. I really don't think google base is getting alot of traffic other than those listing ads.
It is too confusing as to what Google is doing with GoogleBase and Froogle. I liked that they are free, but since they do not work. I will keep using eBay.
