Search Engine Wars

SEO Article Posted by Internet Marketing Speaker on 04-02-2008

I only use Google for my searches and since 90% of my clients find my site and products using Google-I feel like I’m in good company! Do you really care that Yahoo could never beat Google? I don’t really care that Microsoft is trying to buy Yahoo in a feeble attempt to crush Google in the search wars. Andy Beal is struck by Google attempting to argue that the merger would create a dangerous monopoly. LOL

While it’s nice that Microsoft has an extra $45 billion hanging around I don’t think their plan will work. Our friends at Google still get 20,000 resumes a week and the cache of working at Google is subsiding somewhat. Many of the best and the brightest prefer smaller firms where they can have more of an immediate impact-smaller firms like Facebook.

When was the last time you heard a newly minted engineering student brag about going to a great small, innovative firm called Microsoft? Google’s stock has been taken to the wood shed but its search remains dominant! Let the search wars begin!

  1. Let them merge, putting to losers together when it comes to search does not make a winner. They will both likely be so distracted for a while that Googles market share will go up further just because of that.

    Love your Blog Skin, it is very classy

  2. Thanks Knox and Thanks James-the Knox did the blog skin. I agree about putting two losers together, kind of reminds me of AOL and Time Warner-they sure kicked butt lol

  3. I agree with Knox about MSN. I have always been confused about Yahoo’s search results and this would leave only 2 good ones (MSN and Google – Good with MSN only means better than Yahoo in this case).

    Ask’s interface I don’t care for as there is far too much paid results at the top and bottom, but, I think that there needs to be three to keep things competitile. Google seems to return the best results for everything I am looking for and that’s what it really should be about – returning the best results.

    Also, good point about AOL and Time Warner. There is nothing to say that a combination of these 2 would be any better.

  4. Thanks for coming by Ryan. Back in the day, I made a lot of money on Yahoo stock, when they were an innovator!

  5. Timing is everything 🙂
