Google has shut down its Commerce Search platform, which optimized search results and for retail sites, notes TechCrunch.

The service first launched in 2009 and was updated in 2011 with “Instant Search” availability.

“We are making a strategy shift towards offering more flexible, easier to adopt modules for retailers, such as the Search As You Type widget, rather than a full site search replacement and therefore will no longer be offering Google Commerce Search as a core site search replacement product.
