As the economic slump continues, Google is starting to feel a slight pinch, in that consumer are not searching as much for things to buy. Because of this, the search giant is seeing a decline in commercial searches. People are now looking more for bargains.

After reading about this, I have noticed my actions during the past month. I have been scouring the web for the lowest prices for Christmas gifts and also for a new TV for our master bedroom. I have been doing searches which have resulted in the cheapest price I could find. But is this different than what I have done in previous years? I personally don’t believe so. I have always looked for quality products at bargain prices.

Before you feel sorry for Google, analysts are still predicting a 11% growth for the search company.

What do you think? Have you changed your search habits? If so, let us know what you are doing differently.
