The Google Shopping Best of Everything Guide is here

Google just launched its first Best Things for Everything Guide, a list of 1,000 top-rated

Google just launched its first Best Things for Everything Guide, a list of 1,000 top-rated and trending products across eight categories, including fitness, pets and electronics, along with subsequent subcategories for pillows, TVs and more. This comes from Google Shopping, which is a focused Google search site for products and retailers. According to Google, The Best Things guide “highlights the best products reviewed by people across the web” between 2020 and 2021. Google said in an email it looked at “how products are discussed online” and “what’s popular, what’s viewed most on the internet and what’s being searched.” While it declined to provide more specific definitions of its criteria for the list — like what specifically “popular” means — Google confirmed to Shopping that companies do not have to advertise with Google or Google Shopping in order for their products to be considered in the list.

In a blog post about the Best Things list, Google shared that it has seen at least a 100-percent increase in search volumes for ring lights, air fryers and exercise bikes — the last two subcategories on the list — in the last year. You can click into any product on Google’s list to learn more about it and see user reviews of it. You’ll also find which retailers carry the item and prices across those stores. Similar to last year’s Google gift guide, the Best Things list is full of Shopping reader-favorite brands, from Dyson and Shark to Fenty Beauty and Sonos. To save you time, we took a look at each of the 1,000 products in the list and picked out ones we’ve previously recommended and that therefore stood out to us.
