A new homepage for Google Shopping

May 12, 2011

Google Product Search has a new homepage on its US version, organized into three sections -“Popular This Week”, a seasonal “Gifts for Grads” (?), and “Recently viewed” ; each section supporting a carousel to browse products and tooltips when rolling over a product.

I feel this is a really great design for a homepage – the focus is still on the search as there are no category tree ; it brings a nice blend of merchandising placements and personalized experience. Congrats, Google team!
