Scour Search Engine Blows Away Cuil and Others, Watch Out Google!
I’m most fascinated with Google specifically as a search engine- its seemingly limitless power over the internet and how they came to be. Google has 100 and so products available and some of their notable services include: Gmail, Google Checkout, Picasa, YouTube, Google Gears, Blogger, Search, Adsense, Adwords, Apps, Docs, Gadgets, Lively, Knol, Orkut, Reader, Alerts, Base, Analytics, Goog-411, Friend Connect, Jaiku, Feedburner, iGoogle, and Google earth. The average internet user probably avail of at least 5 Google products! I use 11! How many Yahoo! do you use? I use 3!
In such a short time, they have become a global phenomenon that anyone who has access to the internet knows what or who Google is. In time, it will equate or even surpass iconic names like Coke (Coca-cola) and Kodak- the two being the most famous brand names in the world. Even in the most remote areas, in the outskirts of Asia to the borders of South Africa- people know Coca-Cola (Koka Kona)!
This fascination often leads to frustration as I become more and more dependent to this demi-god. They continuously dominate search and come as the number one search provider in the US commanding 62% share of the pie, according to the latest 2008 Neilsen Online Report. Yahoo comes in second with only 17.5%. Huge, huge difference!
