Google Commerce Search: To Ease Your Holiday Shopping

Once again, Google's come up with something to make a traditional pain in the behind less of an agony. Their latest new service isn't nearly as awesome or convenient as Google Voice, but it still helps to simplify what was once an annoyance. Google Commerce Search launched today, with the stated goal of simplifying holiday shopping for consumers and online retailers alike.

A good search service that returns pertinent hits is a crucial part of any e-retailer. Plenty of websites have awful search engines that keep customers from stumbling upon great deals and finding the products they really want. Google Commerce Search is a program that applies Google's search engine to whatever online store you happen to be browsing. It allows shoppers to search by category, price, brand, or any other attribute you can think of.

Unfortunately, GCS isn't a free service for retailers. They'll need to visit the website here and pay to set up Google Commerce Search for their online store. Once they gain administrator rights, they can alter their search settings in order to highlight certain products or let customers know about linked deals and similar products. GCS also has a built-in spellchecker that suggests synonyms or corrects errors so that a spelling mistake won't keep you (or, more importantly, your customer) from finding the right product.
