This is what I get. It seems your right and I misunderstood. But it does give me two sites to purchase vitamins.

See?

No shopping results.

They should look similar to these:

UK

Australia

Italy

Brazil

Again.... Where are you located? And, post a pic of your result and url used!

I've called a few people to try the same thing and they are getting nothing too.

This is not just me.

Now search for tin foil hats. See the difference?

Sorry UK - and just realised you've already identified there are no probs here. So just ignore me.

For the record though, this is what we see

THAT is EXACTLY what we should see here in the United States, but now don't.

And no one seems to know why, or is even asking why????

That's hysterical.

I hadn't thought to search for illicit drugs, but as you stated, results are available.

:shk:

Have you tried other search engines?

Unless it's ilegal to sell and/or advertise vitamins for sale over the internet in the US? So there simply aren't any sites? But even then I'd expect you to see UK websites appear.

I didn't read the replies - as I'm juggling things here ATM... but Google "herbal supplements" I got About 13,700,000 results (0.18 seconds).

What country are you located in and did you use a generic google search or actually use their shopping section?

Google Shopping

I wish I could edit my original post to make things MUCH clearer. It seems like everyone who jumps in this thread misses completely what I am saying is happening and where...

*sigh*

US and I used a Generic Google search.

Here is the top hit - a reputable company - as far as I know. Don't know about their international shipping policies.

I have an ex who owns/runs an herbal supplement/vitamin store so if you're looking for really specific info on products/brands/etc feel free to U2U me and I'll see if I can't get her to email me some links for you.

I tried a few other search engines that have shopping sections. So far, they remain available.

This just seems to be a Google Shopping policy change.

What I don't get is why so few are complaining about it or why it has even happened?

First ammo and firearms....now vitamins and supplements... You'd think the MSM would be all over this.

Thank you. BUT, please read my posts in this thread.

You are completely missing the point.

Ah, I see that now... The dangers of diving in without looking at the depth of the water!


Oh well, I was well intentioned.

If I had to guess I'd say that Googles lawyers panicked because herbal supplements are a hot button issue legally right now... Since the FDA doesn't control, test, qualify, or validate them.

My .02 cents.

Not entirely true.

The ban operates against over-the-counter medications too, like aspirin and cough suppressants.

You should watch this to understand what is happening concerning vitamins & food and why you dont find them on google.

I've seen that video. But like much on these boards, I took it with a grain of salt.

I suppose eventually at least one of the crazy ass doom threads found on this site is bound to materialize into something very real.


Hope this is not one of them.

OK, that is weird. The only way to know why though is to ask Google I suppose.
