    I’m observing since last few months that google is doing pretty good job either by introducing new features in their existing products like in google analytics or by introducing new thing like E-commerce search solution.

    This solution sounds great, but there are some issues with some of the basics of the functionality of their search, especially the filters and relevancy they show on the Google Store search. See our blog post for details on these issues http://www.sli-systems.com/blog/2009/11/google-commerce-search-a-critique.html.
