I did not intentionally "use Froogle" or apply to a Froogle program, but when I indicated the prices of some items, I often found those items and my site listed in Froogle -- just happened to land there
The items that appeared in Froogle were on static pages of mine and blogs of mine. I do not yet use datafeed but I might in the future.
Create a static page of some items you would like to sell and list the prices, you might get listed in Froogle
I think that Froogle is intended for merchants with inventory, but I had some listings (not lately but I did in the past).

you're not supposed to . . . it is for companies with their own goods to post, products for which they set the price. but it happens.
Froogle actually has two places to put things: up front are the legit offerings where they took in a datafeed, and following that in the results are items they picked off other sites, even those of affiliates.
So it is possible for something from an affiliate site to show up in Froogle.
Also, take a look at base.google.com, which is not supposed to be affiliate stuff, but you'll find sites running scripts to present amazon.com's products and you only have to drill down a little to find that out.
by the way, if you have a page with original stuff on it, or a special directory, or recipe, or some piece of expert knowledge, it probably qualifies in some way to be added to google base. Now, it's in Beta so no idea if it will survive or not, but they claim your page could be indexed just because it is listed there.

I did not go after Froogle. All I did was feature items and list prices (something an affiliate is allowed to do) -- I did no special submission.

Your supposed to be a merchant with your own cart. Froogle/google also suppliments with what it finds on the web with its spiders. I had a ton of affiliate stuff in there at one time that I never submitted that they pulled from my site (and had bunches of sales) but thats been long gone. I see tons of spam in froogle.Suz~~GearGirl~~
