Based on the color dipole representation, we investigate consequences for the γ*γ**γ scattering of the finding by Fadin, Kuraev, and Lipatov that the incorporation of asymptotic freedom into the BFKL equation makes the QCD pomeron a series of isolated poles in the angular momentum plane. The emerging color dipole BFKL-Regge factorization allows us to relate in a model-independent way the contributions of each BFKL pole to the γ*γ** γ scattering and the deep inelastic scattering on protons. Numerical predictions based on our early work on the color dipole BFKL phenomenology of the deep inelastic scattering on protons gives a good agreement with the recent experimental data from OPAL and L3 experiments at LEP200. We discuss the role of nonperturbative dynamics and predict a pronounced effect of the Regge-factorization breaking due to large unfactorizable nonperturbative corrections to the perturbative vacuum exchange. We comment on the salient features of the BFKL-Regge expansion for the γ*γ**γ scattering including the issue of the decoupling of subleading BFKL poles and the soft plus rightmost hard BFKL pole dominance.
