    Can Google Stay on Top of the Web

    BusinessWeek recently published another nice little puff piece on Google, Can Google Stay on Top of the Web?

    The article highlights a few of the personalities at Google whom we as SEO's may find ourselves working against.

    Ofcourse, Google will stick to his place. No doubt at all. After it depends on we people.

    Indeed, time will tell; but as it seems Google is the overall leader, and it is planning to remain there.

    I am sure that Google will do all what it takes to remain where they are, or even go further and to improve all they are offering.

    Google at this point is like a Superpower...

    As did the Roman Empire, the British Empire, the Soviet empire, Standard Oil, IBM, and Novell during their time.

    Google is billions of dollars in front. The only thing that will bump them is a new cool kid on the block.

    That was good article, I don think anyone can beat Google any time soon. Google software is probably millions of SLOC, if not more then a 100 million who knows. Windows 3.1 in 1993 was 5 Million SLOC, now Windows XP is 50 Million SLOC.
    It took them, like 10 years to get that far. Yes they reuse the old code, in fact your windows may still contain old code from windows 3.1.
    .
    So this new kid on the block better have a legion of software engineers. xD
    It probably will take them a few _years_. This is why Bing and yahoo want to team up, they know coding this stuff up from the ground up is too much SLOC to try to compete with.

    It is expensive indeed to compete with Google. Yahoo spent $235 million to aquire Inktomi search which didn't go anywhere. Microsoft topped that and spent $100 million just to advertise the 'Live=Bing' makeover. With all the money Microsoft is spending, they have fighting to hold 9% share of search.

    While Google is on top in the search engine market, they probably will stay there for years to come until someone else with lots of money rises up. Keep in mind Google has been losing focus on its search engine and pouring it into the cell phone market lately.
