I can’t bring you part three of my Comparison Shopping optimization strategy “The Kitchen Sink” because I am too frustrated with Shopping.comIf you haven’t seen their new design, check it out. It is pretty. As a marketer I’m pleased as it makes advertisers much more prominent but as a comparison shopping manager, I’m not so sure. But that’s not the point of my rant.
How many people are being redirected to fr.shopping.com? Seems their redesign was accompanied by a bug in which some segment of users are identified as being in France. This hasn’t been fixed in days so I’m fed up and wanted to let you know. Sure, I can still get to the English site by clicking the good ole’ American Flag at the bottom (good thing I know what Etats-Unis means) because I’m not sure they know French! According to Altavista’s Babel Fish “Je Mappelle Shoppy” apparently means “I Mappelle Shoppy”
