Google E-Commerce YouTube Channel

May 10, 2010

Google has launched its E-Commerce YouTube Channel an interactive source for demo, feature launch and instructional videos for Google Checkout and Product Search.

This video shows how to setup Shipping in Google Checkout.

An aside – Google’s choice of the Shopping Cart for its Google Checkout logo has some coincidental and personal significance for me.

The shopping cart was invented and patented by Oklahoman Sylvan Goldman.

I once lived in Mr. Goldman’s house @ 6900 Grand Blvd.  in Nichols Hills, OK.

Google Checkout eBay’s Paypal Adwords

June 14, 2007

After reading coverage today in both the San Francisco Chronicle and the LA Times about how PayPal pulled their ads from Google, I ran a couple of searches in Google and found the following search results ironic.

eBay doesn’t appear to be running ads any longer for eBay brand terms or the millions of other search terms they normally advertised under. However, their PayPal unit either directly or indirectly through affiliates is still advertising on searches for Google Checkout.
