Google Shopping

(1) For Google's same-day delivery service, see Google Express.

(2) Google Shopping is an online search service from Google that locates products and the stores where they can be purchased. Introduced in 2002 as "Froogle" and later "Google Product Search," it was renamed Google Shopping in 2012. That same year changed the monetization model from AdWords to paid listings by the merchant.

The original name was a play on the word "frugal" that nicely rhymed with Google. For more information, visit www.google.com/shopping. See Google Express.
