Anyone who has ever spent more than a few minutes on the Internet know what Google is. The giant has been in business since 1998 and is synonymous with searching the Web. Google has also expanded considerably over the past decade, adding a number of tools, resources and business to its repertoire. One of these is Google Shopping, which, like its competitors, offer online buyers a look at products and comparisons of their prices. Google Shopping was started in 2002 and has undergone several rebrands and changes. The name became Google Search in 2012.
Google Shopping has the following elements that you will like as an online shopper or merchant:
Surprisingly, Google Shopping has some flaws and shortcomings that you should be aware of when deciding where to turn to for online shopping. Here are some things Google Shopping does not do well and needs to improve on:
Some prices are estimates. When you buy something, you want to know exactly what you're paying. While the price listings do include tax and shipping (as noted above in "The Good" section), many of the figures are merely estimates.
Using Google Shopping is great to quickly compare prices across tons of sites. I trust that I'm finding the best options when I check here before buying.
I love using Google Shopping because it helps me find the product i'm looking for from multiple stores so i can find the best price/quality product out there. It's really easy to use as well.
I comparison price when I shop online. If I find the price lower here than elsewhere, I look for Google's warranty to decide which company to buy from. I have not been disappointed in any purchase and in need of using the warranty, but find assurance knowing it is there. I would appreciate having more department store pricing included.
Google stuffs the beginning of any shopping search with the companies that pay alphabet (googles parent company). So customers end up overpaying and buying inferior products.
Not all searches are same, google seems to treat all searches as same and responds it with voting machine. Shopping search is more suited for vertical search engine, bilsir.com for instance.
