"Online shoppers are offered millions of choices when they want to buy something," said Klais. "We wanted to give them the benefit of our years of experience in helping the nation's best online retailers. Our job is to make sure online shoppers can find whatever they want online by typing in the product attributes they care about the most."

According to Klais, these are the Top Five Online Shopping Search Tips:

1. Trying to find a product within a certain price range? Use two periods ".." to search Google for a numerical range. (Ex. LG LCD TV $500..$700)

2. Trying to find the same product in different colors or sizes? Add an uppercase "OR" to your search. (Ex. Cabela's Socks Wool OR Cotton)

3. Trying to find an alternative to an item you found online? Use the tilde symbol "~" before your keyword to search for similar items and alternatives to your search. (Ex. ~Allen-Edmonds-Shoes)

4. Is Google returning unwanted results? Use the minus symbol "-" to exclude certain sites or keywords from the results. (Ex. Skechers Running Shoes -Zappos)

5. Trying to find a CD? Start your search with "music:" followed by the artist, song title, or album to get the latest reviews. (Ex. music: Foo Fighters)
