You want it. You search for it. You buy it.

Simple, right? Everyone's default search engine, Google, wants to make the process at least one step faster. In the coming weeks, the tech giant will be launching "buy" buttons on its search-results pages, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

When a person searches Google for a particular product, he or she might see a button within the results pages to buy said product directly. Click on the button and the person will be directed to another Google product page to complete the transaction.
