“With more than 600 million custom furniture combinations now available at hayneedle.com, we need a powerful search engine that helps us fulfill our commitment to providing the best online shopping experience in the industry,” said Brian Moen, chief marketing officer, Hayneedle. “Thanks to Google we now have a custom platform that thinks the way our customers search. That means we can customize landing locations for customers’ product searches to include their favorite products and brands in the results. We’re also applying custom synonym and misspelling functions to help customers find products even if they don’t type in the correct search term.”

The Google Search Appliance (GSA) takes the search experience shared by millions of people across the globe at Google.com and harnesses it for the specific search needs of hayneedle.com customers. Searching is easier and intuitive – turning Hayneedle’s search engine into a system as relevant and reliable as Google’s – with the same ease of use.
