Pr Of Froogle Link Does Not Affect Froogle Rank
Posted 05 August 2004 - 04:00 PM
There are two pages on our site that could be considered valid "product" pages for Froogle to link to - one has a Page Rank of 7, the other is PR5. We were originally supplying the PR5 URL to Froogle, and I thought that might be part of the cause of our low ranking. I changed our datafeed to supply the PR7 page. Our Froogle ranking moved up a single spot!
Thus, based on my limited experiment, I hypothesize that the PR of the URL you supply to Froogle as your product page will have no effect on your Froogle ranking.

In your case we have learned that Page ranks makes no difference to ranking in froogle. (much the same as in Google then) So a positive outcome will prevent others from wasting time testing this theory. A little experiment succeeded :-)

Maybe the experiment shows that PR carries very little weight?
Personally, I click to sort by price once I reach a product level in Froogle, so it's somewhat mute for my behavior. OTOH, I'm seeing some significant sales generated by Froogle results pushed onto the Google SERPs for products hitting the magic formula.

So, this begs the question, how do we raise our Froogle ranking? We are the manufacturer of the product, we sell more of it that anyone else worldwide, and our price is excellent (not the cheapest, but often close). Our product page ranks #4 on Google for the same keyphrase that produces a #56 ranking on Froogle! Any suggestions?

For example, when I enter the keyword for Product A (which we manufacture) and then sort by low to high price, I see another non-related product that finds it's way in there as the lowest. Total SCAM!
Hopefully this will be fixed soon before everyone figures out how to do this.

What is the relationship between the Froogle "search term," datafeed title, and onpage factors (title, H1 tags, etc) in your case?
I can't figure this out either. I'd have to agree with your conclusion, PR oddly does not seem to be a ranking factor.

The "name" field in the datafeed is "company name model name submodel name"
The on page factors are:
Title: "Model Store: Model Name blah blah"
Mentions of the Model Name on the page are a bit sparse - none near the top of the page (they are in graphics), some further down the page.
Keep in mind, however, that despite the somewhat non-optimized page, we rank #4 on Google for the same search term!

On certain product related searches on Google, they push a few Froogle results near the top of the page. Here's an example for "canon a70":
The conversions through that type of results have been very good.
