    Cant find the URL, but it was posted in a thread in the last week or so.

    just wondered what everyone thought the implications of this would be should this shopping mall go live.

    Will Google use it to populate Google.com results?
    What effect will it have on quality of results?
    What effect will it have on us?
    What effect will it have on business partnerships between say Yahoo/Google if any?
    Who has the most to lose from a Google shopping site?
    They have the beta up. is there any way it is just there as a negotiation tool when making business deals? E.G. Cannot think how it might be used like this, but i am sure others here might come up with ideas as to how Google could "persuade" relationships with search engines by waving the threat in front of companies.

    Would like to say bump, but know that this is frowned upon. Would just like to say that I find it strange that people are not interested in this issue.

    Maybe that is why I got no replies.

    Call it what you will - the search site that is set up to return search results from about 200 merchants including Amazon.

    >>Will Google use it to populate Google.com results?

    Beats me..

    >>What effect will it have on quality of results?

    More shopping is always good. But the shopping listings were supposed to be mine...

    >>What effect will it have on us?

    It's a Sumo Wrestler that just stepped into the arena! Could be tough, IF they do it right...

    Also they may start to see us as competition. Whether that'll matter will depend on how well they can spot us...

    >>What effect will it have on business partnerships between say Yahoo/Google if any?

    I think that would depend on if the partner was into sales, and if so, how heavily they are into the sales end.

    >>Who has the most to lose from a Google shopping site?

    Someone with a competing shopping search engine...
