Google Shopping blocks all vitamins and natural products -glitch or deliberate censorship?

If you live in the U.S. and try to use Google Shopping to buy vitamins, supplements, personal care products, and even many health foods, your search queries will now turn up blank, as Google has apparently blocked access to all vitamins and natural products for American customers.

Just tried to search for vitamin C and nothing came up.

But, if a 13 year-old girl wanted to shop for a place to get an abortion without parental consent, I'm sure, thousands of results would come up.

What?
I just did a search for natural vitamins (vitamins+ natural) and there are over 280K hits, with fifteen natural online vitamin shops popping up.
How are you searching?
Oh and a link to this story about how you can’t search for natural vitamins.

He means in the Shopping search, on google. Nothing turns up there. Google is changing the nature of their shopping search, however. I dont know if this is related.

Google Shopping, which I used to frequent has gone to hell in a handbasket. I don’t know what they were thinking (they were thinking $$$), but they’ve ruined their own shopping search from their site.

Well, you got me because I don’t know what that means “shopping search”.
I just put vitamins + natural in the search block and got all those online shops popping up.
Could you explain “shopping search”?

Google has, or used to have, a "shopping" search which would go out and find people or companies selling the item you searched for.

It is listed on the left hand side of a completed regular search, click on "Shopping", and you will see the results, usually with prices.

On http://google.com/shopping/, you can find tens of thousands of results for abortion, condoms, gay sex, but if you type ‘centrum’, a very popular multi-vitamin supplement, you get zero results.

This is something that has been going on since at least July 9th of this year. If you’re accessing shopping from another country, you get the normal results as you’d expect, though localized for that country (IE: Centrum now returns 140 results, from French companies selling the product, if you do this search on google.fr/shopping/)

I’ve yet to see an explanation why this has become a banned category from Google.

No results if you use Google Shopping for vitamin D, not the regular search.

Oddly enough, you still get google ads for vitamins if you do a regular search for vitamin supplements. But if you try a shopping search... nothing.

Google is so fantastically, unbelieveably, incredibly evil, that Satan's doctors ban him from accessing it, because he ends up laughing so hard, and so long, that he starts to go into convulsions and they have to resuscitate him.

On the “shopping” section of Google — 0 Hits for Vitamin C.

On the general web search for Vitamin C on Google — a lot of hits.

Google Shopping now only displays shopping results from sites that have PAID Google to include them in their Shopping results.

OTOH, try individual shopping sites, such as Next-Tag, Shopzilla, etc; or just do a regular Google Web search for the item, being as specific as possible.

Eventually, either retailers will cave, and pay to have their sites included; or Google will cave and go back to the old (or semblance thereof) Shopping format.

My husband and I were living in Germany during the transition to the euro. I had many debates with my German friends about this. I kept insisting that they were losing their sovereignty, they insisted that I was insane. “This will just make travel and trade easier in Europe.”

We went back a few years later for another PCS move and by the time we left, I had German friends begging me to buy them Centrum multivitamins. They were offering me an insane mark-up (more than 100%) if I would do this for them.

Turns out the European Parliament had classified vitamins as drugs and you could no longer get them without a prescription.

There’s a lot of stuff you can’t get in Europe, and I surmise this is becoming the model for Obamacare.

Take the lowly aspirin, for example.

In Europe, aspirin is strictly regulated. They let you buy 24 tablets a pop, and that’s it. Of course, the pricing is just as bizarre: typically 5-6 dollars per pack, which makes the thing a goldmine, and with the actual level of necessary use almost an extra tax. Aspirin is actually stricter regukated than opiates; getting large amounts of aspirin for long-term use is formally impossible. There’s a loophole though, which is to have some friend in the US send you the stuff as a gift. Such loopholes wil probably disappear once Obama is installed for next term, Obamacare set in stone and the Euro-iification of America completed.

Click on the "Shopping" menu item after your web search.

It brings up nothing.
