Halloween's barely over, but it's already the most wonderful time of the year! Brace yourselves for the onslaught of holiday-themed money-grubbing, folks.

And how ever shall they find it? Google Commerce Search, of course!
Google Commerce Search was engineered with the online retail experience in mind. It purports to allow visitors to quickly find the products they seek; to filter results by category, price, brand or other attributes; to increase conversions and sales; to increase sales of specific products within search results; to conduct cross-sale and promotional offers; and to scale without glitches because of holiday-related traffic spikes. And all of these results are to be delivered alongside Google's analytics offerings for optimized performance and conversion.
