Google Commerce Search

If you’re running an online shop, Google’s new Commerce Search may be worth having a look at. Google describes it as a “search solution designed specifically with online retail enterprises in mind.” Instead of a usual sign up button, you’re asked to contact Google’s sales team (though the button points to a verbose, general ways-to-find-support page). Later on, you can then upload your product data at the Google Merchant Center, and go on to customize your site’s search engine. Google’s admin console lets you “manage product promotions, upload synonym dictionaries” and control search options. This service isn’t free though... you’ll be billed based on the amount of items in your data, as well as the number of searches performed every year.
