Google launched a new search engine service designed specifically for e-commerce sites. Google Commerce Search is essentially a shopping cart solution for online retailers, says Search Engine Land. A hosted service, Google Commerce Search is integrated with Google Analytics and Google's Merchant Center and Product Search services.
Promising to improve an e-commerce site's search and usability, Google Commerce Search will be priced starting at $50,000 a year and will target the top 1,000 online retailers in each of the countries where Google operates, reports Network World in a story on SFGate.com. The launch comes just in time for the upcoming holiday e-commerce rush, according to eWEEK.
