Introducing Google Product Search for mobile

Thursday, April 23, 2009 at 10:06 AM

Today, we launched Google Product Search for mobile for iPhone and Android-powered devices. When mobile users search for products on the go they can get quick access to product information -- like online product ratings, reviews, prices, and more -- formatted neatly for their phones.

If you've already submitted items to Google Product Search, you don't have to do anything extra to get your product information to show up on Google Product Search for mobile. If your items are not yet listed in Product Search, it's easy: just submit your product information using this guide and keep submitting frequently to keep your listings up to date.

This is also a good opportunity for you to create mobile versions of your landing pages. Although the iPhone and Android browsers can render many web pages as they are, you may want to consider optimizing your landing pages for mobile browsers to improve the user experience.

Here's a video of my colleague demonstrating Google Product Search for mobile at our company store.
