No. It's not necessary to do anything with Froogle, only if you want to. They do spider sites on their own.

Yes in fact I'd say this is essential. For about the first week one of my sites was in Froogle I for some reason felt funny about the sales stats we were tying to Froogle. We were measuring basically by sales attributed to the froogle.google.com referrer. Boy was that a mistake!
We then appended the URLs of all our pages that were submitted to Froogle and found that are sales via Froogle were 3 times what we had thought. The culprit? Two-fold. First, sometimes froogle searches stem from the google.com/froogle URL, different than the first one I mentioned. Second, sometimes Google will list 3 Froogle results on the regular Google SERPs pages, right between the top ads and the "top" organic results - prime real estate on the SERPs pages! Don't ask me how or why, but our listings get in that top 3 pretty routinely and that alone seems to be driving more traffic than all sales from people who specifically went to search on Froogle.

A number of our competitors remain listed on Froogle but I've also noticed a number of our other competitors are no longer listed as well.
We've not made any changes that should warrant delisting from Froogle...
In the last few days I've been trying to upload a feed with tracking URL's to Froogle but they've not yet processed the feed. Any ideas on how long it should take?
I'm hoping that any information gathered from Froogle might help us make the decision as to whether or not to bother listing product on other shopping comparison sites.
Any thoughts, feedback would be appreciated.

Not seeing a lot of traffic from this though. More coming from standard search, and the few backlinks acquired so far.

Good news is, they've processed the feed this morning, bad news is I botched the file format, will re-load and hope it goes as quickly this time...
I don't expect a tremendous amount of traffic, but any traffic we do get from Froogle at the moment is coming through adwords campaign, thus costing money. Would prefer free traffic and be able to track...

More questions from a newbie....
I was interested in froogle a while back, but noticed that they specified the feed must be in US$. I disregarded it then, but I've only recently found froogle UK. The feed policy there still states US$, but this can't be right, as all the products on froogle UK are priced in GB£??
I presume that GB£ are the correct currency to be using in Froogle UK...
Sounds like a daft question, I know.....

Most DVDs have multiple listings for the same title, multiple groups for the same title, and some are incorrectly grouped or labelled. Has anyone figured out the methodology at work here? Also, how big a role does PageRank play (if any) in how high up on the search results you place?

Froogle works wonderfully for me.
I'd go back to your datafeed and reassess your titles and description to see what you can do to improve your clickthrough rates.
Let's look at one of your listings (see attachment).
I believe you've misspelt 'custom'. The Froogle search engine is going to be brutally unforgiving of this. I'd also recommend putting an actual image of the product instead of a generic one like this. The exclamations (!) in your product description are likely causing people to breeze right past you onto the next similar listing. Take out the hype the speak to your audience sincerely. Describe the product.

Honestly, it beats the crap out of my overture PPCs... and this ones FREE!
I am sending them my feed (5000) products, but I noticed that some products list well and some products don't.
There was a response before about letting froogle figure out the title by itself..
Do you mean leave the name field blank? Has anyone tried this? Does it work better?
