User category: Business

All too often local product search results are dominated by big box retailers. Given the number of smaller boutique type shops in and around Portland, helping small business owners understand how to upload their inventory and pricing information to Google for product search results would be very useful.

Description: Provide a screencast tutorial developed to instruct local business on how to upload and syndicate their inventory and pricing information to Google Product Search. Furthermore, instruct local business how to tie their uploaded inventory and pricing information to Google Places to geocode their locality of offerings.
