Froogle UK points at more expensive products?

The UK blogosphere has been somewhat excited about Froogle UK, Google’s shopping price comparison index. Except from a little experiment I just did, it seems to swerve people away from the cheapest prices.

I did a Froogle UK search on Star Wars trilogy DVD boxset. The cheapest one that came up was for £26.99, but Froogle asks whether I meant “Star Wars trilogy DVD box set” – ie that’s the “recommended” search.

Make that query and the cheapest one is suddenly for £29.

  • It helps if you click on the link to the left "Price: low to high" although you'd think that would be the default, it isn't.
