It's a limited release to Internet Retailers that have registered with Windows Live.

It will operate on Windows Live Product Search.

I've applied to be part of the beta test. Has anyone else applied? Been accepted? Rejected? Any idea how quick the process is?

Thank you. It was so hard to find it, even when using live search! I just registered our business. Let's see if we get the invite soon :-)

Where/how did you apply to be part of beta? I can't seem to see it anywhere on live.com

Some how they already pulled all over our products onto their site.

Kind of interesting

Using Agora should also boost retailers’ natural and paid-search rankings in Windows Live Product Search, he adds.

That's interesting. I guess that's like being authenticated in sitemaps or explorer. But publicly saying that using the product can influence natural search is like bear baiting to SEOs! :)

I signed up with MS Live on 11-10-06 and received the invitation from MS on 11-29-06. (My products are not includeed in Live yet, so I'll be uploading that feed soon.)
