Great write up, the only thing that google was ever good at is it's search engine and adwords. They have fuked up every other attempt to make anything successful (buzz, plus, etc, etc, etc). Funny that they also manage to screw up the one thing that brings in most of their income when they could have just left things alone.
Brilliant write up mate, i actually enjoyed and read all of it.
Plain and simple. Google needs adsense sites in the search results.
I understand users don't necessarily like to see them, but Google needs them.
Their expedition to show the users the actual merchant site in organic results will kill the adsense model.
If merchant sites are dominating the organic results, what is their incentive to advertise with Adwords?
careful what you wish for. internet economy goes down, so will your business. work with it not against it.
You have to remember, g00gal started making money with Adsense and Adsense has been the cornerstone of their success. The issue here is that g00gal has developed an arrogance that is on the ninth degree. When a company arbitrarily bashes/bans/penalizes the people that made them successful, something is amiss. To be clear, g00gal needs Adsense but in their arrogance, they have devalued it.
HatIsBlacked, I don't know how long you have been in this business or how many people you know in the business who are successful. If you've been in it for a while and know a lot of successful Internet Marketers, then you know that g00gal DOES NOT believe in fair enterprise.
g00gal operates the way any dictatorial monarchy operates; they issue all of the edicts and answer to no one. If it takes a major stock drop to get their attention, my position is, let whip! They need to whipped back into reality.
I for one would expect them to retreat to a shade more like their former models. In their effort to make a more user friendly experience, they have basically strangled the "made for adsense" sites that were bringing them (and us) so much extra revenue.
Unless they are so arrogant as you say, and can't see the truth. In which case you are right and Wall Street will punish them, and we should all be shorting GOOG.
I don't know if my post wasn't clear, but this is the exact point I was making.
The fact that they rely so heavily on providing a good "user experience" (whatever the fuck that means), they have essentially killed a main source of revenue.
Gold Mike, just think of AT&T and their arrogance before they got slapped with deregulation. Prior to that point, AT&T offered poor customer service and treated vendors like crap. They raised prices at will and answered to no one. It was their arrogance that brought about their downfall. It looks like g00gal may end up paying the price for their AT&T like arrogance.
OK, Themidiman, I misread you a little bit, but now I gotcha! And I concur with you about g00gal's language, "providing a good user experience." I translate that statement to mean, "We [g00gal] will do what the hell we please!"
Their income drop has sent a clear message to stock analysts and investors and like I said in my original post, if they don't meet and beat the projections for this 1st qtr, expect some g00gal fallout.
I was happy to see my two teenage daughters have switched to Yahoo and Bing. They know what I do, but don't really care, lol.
I like to watch how they surf, find things..which I have to do without making it obvious, otherwise I'm just weird, haha.
So when I asked them why they switched, they both said Google sucks, it never gives them what they're looking for.
Really? If that's the case with the younger generation then maybe the big G is starting to go downhill...
Google has been pushing away businesses and corporations over the last few years. I worked with a company that spend a TON of money per month and they moved their entire marketing to Bing. I know quite a lot of other businesses who have done the same. Google has become anti-business and it shows in their practices.
I also think some people are questioning the deep impact of the Android OS as the newest iPhone is almost selling as many phones as ALL of the Android phones. Plus them acquiring Motorola Mobility worries some people....
Google better start purchasing some companies up, as they couldn't innovate if it hit them in the face right now.
Yeah, I take that as a good sign. They don't surf the net with IM glasses on, they're both just regular surfers. And as much as I hate to admit it, the both of them aren't leaders, lol. They fall to social pressure to fit in, do what everyone else is doing haha. Teenagers aye, what can you do.
When their friends come over to visit, I'll ask them what they use to surf the net.
It's a nice war between Google and Bing. It's bad to show that many paid results but I don't think Google is going down that easy. They are living from statistics as many from here. I think they make experiments and learn some things the hard way.
too bad yahoo's not for canada
Very nice write up. I read in an article the other day, and the author predicted that Bing will have a 20% increase in their marketshare during 2012 . Well after this I think not only the prediction will come true but actually Bing will start going ahead of Google .
It is really stupid of G00gal to ignore their primary motive- to help people search things. And by trying to fix which was not broken and by trying to make a bunch of people happy they have in turn made a hell lot of them unhappy ..
bING NEED to do what googall did in the beginning and appease webmasters. This means fucking crawling and indexing faster. Relevancy isnt too bad, but in terms of indexing and crawling new content it is crap. But yeah, I agree Googall is diluting their brand, the problem is they have NO marketers, it is purely an engineering company that 'tries' to innovate, with no marketing research. Seems to be going like Rome?
It's a good sign, but other search engines should take advantage of this and tweak their search engines to beat Google in their game and also offer a strong alternative to publishers worldwide.
Im sure they already have.
