Thread: Google is Killing Small Businesses

    You have to get a big audience to make money from social media, anything under 10,000 is worthless.

    it all depends. 2000 or 3000 followers on twitter can already have an impact if the followers are targeted, influential and chatty enough to retweet you

    Sure, but it will involve a pay service knowledgeable to do this work. When you've got a big budget you can do almost anything if you find the right people.

    Using pay services like SMO, SEO, and SEM are all about ROI.

    Hi,

    Small businesses are still the back bone to America. Yes the big corporations do try to control things, however IMO Google will not make it on ad sales to just big corporations. People will get tired of seeing the same sites over and over and start using other places for searches. I already have. It seem like most of the stuff I search for when I use Google is sending me to the same site so I just go to those sites and skip a google search.

    As someone one told me years ago. "Those who give us can also take us away."

    It is all about volumes and money...

    I agree with you. But having been in the situation to see the effect of what happens when Google penalizes you and from one day to the next you get only 10% of your previous traffic, I can't help looking at anything not Google to substitute this as much as possible.

    I completly agree with you Mike.

    There is an interesting article to read about this subject:

    Google declares war on free clicks
    Google declares war on free clicks | BGR

    When google tells to the people that there is more quality and relevancy in their pay system, it is just desgusting.

    Overall Google is taking more of the 'pie' for themselves. Though a lot depends on the type of business. Commercial terms are harder. Google Paid shopping ads and the "May Day" update are both negative for Ecommerce stores. But there are still opportunities for some niches.

    For keyword searches with high commercial intent performed by U.S. Google users, sponsored results attracted the lion’s share of clicks by a huge margin — 64.6% of traffic from theses searches went to sponsored links while 35.4% when to organic links.

    Sure they cannot kill everything at once, but the trend is obvious, google is after sucking all keywords and keyphrases that convert into sales for their pay business model. It wouldn't take long before they finalize what they started.
