Garett Rogers just wrote an article: What Google is up to listing some domains that have been transfered to Google. The one that caught my eye was google-express.com. Knowing how Google likes to pull technologies together, it got me thinking more about what this could be for. Here’s my train of thought:
- Hey that sounds like a good name for a shopping cart
- Wait a minute, they already have Google Checkout
- They also have their own Google Store
- They’re offering one page websites for business owners in Google AdWords Starter Edition
- Google Local Business Center offers listings for local businesses, even if they don’t have a website
- They have a way to upload products using Google Base
- They can distribute products through Froogle and the Onebox in organic search.
- If they pulled all of these together what would they call it? Google Express!
