Google Commerce Search, it is a gamechanger? Where is Yahoo?

Product search is such a critical feature of most sites and is lacking in many as the product inventory grows... Google brings another solution to the table -however at a serious price!

"The pricing model for Google Commerce Search is based on the number of products/items (SKUs) in your data feed and the number of search queries entered on your site each year. Pricing starts at $50,000 per year."

I think we can improve store search for a price that is far less...

in reference to:

"Visitors spend an average of just eight seconds before deciding whether or not to remain on a website, so having a good search tool is important for turning visitors into buyers. Google Commerce Search is hosted by and uses Google search technology to make online retail searching both fast and customizable"
