Froogle (now submitted through Google Base) is a price comparison service launched by Google Inc. in 2002. Froogle is different from most other price comparison services in that it neither charges any fees for listings, nor accepts payment for products to show up first. Also, it makes no commission on sales. Any company can submit product information (via a "data feed") and be included in the Froogle price comparison engine.

This process is good but can become very tedious so today I would like to discuss a more streamlined way, which you can have your products automatically submitted on a frequent basis. This is the method I would like to discuss and inform you of so you can reap the benefits for your business.

Having your products submitted automatically to Froogle (Google Base) is great for product companies that use a database because the automated process can simply connect to your database everyday and compile a new list of product information. The process will then take this information and format it for insertion into the Froogle system. This automated method will save your business time, money and dramatically increase sales because the automated process will handle every the entire process for you.

There are a few automated tools out there that claim to automate the entire process. The only fully automated system I've seen so far has been developed by Hudson Horizons. Their system is completely web-based, allowing you to easily signup and enter in some basic information. After that, the rest is handled by their team.

After you register, you can simply provide them with the information of your product database. A member of their team will then setup the automated process to connect to your database, free of charge, to gather your product information. The submission will then be tested by their team and placed into rotation to be submitted three times a week.
