Products and Shopping

Google Product Search for Small Businesses

Google Product Search is a fast search engine for finding and comparing products from online stores. It is comprehensive, and useful for locating both common and obscure  items. It claims to be unbiased, as no payment is required for product listings.

Google Product Search does not sell products. Our job is to find the product you want and point you to the store that sells it … all advertising that appears on Google Product Search is clearly labeled.
