Google introduces Froogle.
Froogle used Google's web crawler to index product data from vendor websites. The name was changed to Google Product Search in 2007 and Google Shopping in 2012.
Google Local introduced.
Google Local helped users find specific businesses in their local area. Users typed in a zip code to pinpoint local resources in the area.
Google Maps introduced.
Although acquired by Google in October 2004 and announced on the Google blog in February 2005, it started to appear on the home page in 2006 and Google Local was merged into the main Google maps site. In April version 2 of the API was announced.
