Google Product Search, replacing Froogle, is not really innovative

April 19, 2007

Google just announced Product Search, their new shopping vertical replacing Froogle. The news is important, as it’s Google… But the new product is not that impressive, nor completely different from what Froogle was. Basically, it’s very close from Live Product Search:

Results are enriched with product reviews and seller reviews, coming from search crawl ; and Google Checkout is pretty well integrated.
Note: Product Search is also available behind all Google domains (UK, FR…), but results seem US only at this point.
