The news reported in the Wall Street Journal regarding the Google company corporation global behemoth of interlinking departments and divisions was too little too late. Long has Big Google dominated the internet space, where SEO practices are concerned especially. For Google to defend its practices as merely one of several choices is disingenuous.
Google has dominated not only the online search engine promotion and marketing areas of business, but has also generally been responsible for the integration many of Microsoft type business applications in conjunction with their Google access.
Just try getting on Youtube without having to reset your Google password. Google has purposely penetrated the Youtube search engine of video content to enrich its search engine database holdings, at the expense of privacy for Google member users of Youtube.
There is no option to Youtube with a security parameter except to make a duplicate account upon which to host your audio/video channel or video content. Google has created massive departments of endeavor with each its own director of teams of workers to guide the mastery of the site visitation of a GoogleTube participant.
Big Google is now the Big Brother of Youtube. The appeal of Youtube is less than if it was associated with the multiple marketing levels that Google brings to bear. Why does a company that masters your gmail need to track your Youtube activity? And make no mistake, they are tracking it. Google has launched and promoted more freeware online than any other company, in the size and shape of business and desktop application intended to mimic (and eradicate) the need for Microsoft office Suite product dependence
Google might have had a good case against the antitrust fed warriors, but they have launched heaven and Earth to make themselves Number One, and must answer for those practices. I’m sure Yahoo and Bing and many other fledgeling search engines that have disappeared are watching the antitrust actions against Big Google with interest. But Google has maintained such an outside public profile, especially due to recent squareoffs against China’s online supercompanies, it is hard to accept they might argue their global presence is due to a humble, nonproprietary, unfair market advantage.
The catch-22 of modern business, as Bill Gates will be happy to tell anyone, is that success brings the sniffer dogs of the counter–revolution. federal mandatory concordance to free market enterprises business practices is the ugly undertow following every new wave of fresh success.A more conservative strategy of less rapid growth might have left the antitrust probe depths unplumbed. And with the bulk of the federal brain trust sifting through Google deals, internal correspondence, there may be food for legislative thought.
Except Microsoft Corporation has a proprietary interest in such online desktop business applications as Google Apps provides. Ironically these applications stem from basic computer interface utilities many Microsoft critics over the years have claimed Bill Gates and his merry men stole from other beginner software manufacturers in the early days of the desktop computer. It may be fruit of the poisoned tree that Google adopted this “free-market” clone of the Microsoft Office Suite as its own open access application, in a campaign of online offerings that brought federal antitrust scrutiny.
Want to access a Google apps program? Guess what- you just opened up all your data ad personal computing device security to Google. While Microsoft weathered many legal and antitrust storms by arguing the customization and free application of many of its wares to the online and program computing market, Google seems to be arguing that because a search engine is something that any entity online can operate, a search engines are equally free market enterprise.
Bug it is not news to anybody that all search engine are not alike. Bing does not have anywhere near the following and affiliate advertisement program volume of participants that Google Adsense does. If anything, many domainers and Internet entrepreneurs working in the domain space become uniquely affiliated with Google and Adsense for the length and breadth of their careers, and call it a success. This would not be possible is Google did not have such a stranglehold on the search engine apparatus online.
It looks like being Number One in the search engine stakes may have a price after all. The possibility of a new face in the SEO pace could come from GoDaddy if KKR and friends hatch their chickens at Godaddy’s acquisition table correctly. And why hasn’t FaceBook entered the Search Engine stakes? they’ve got the resources and the users already online 24/7.
Antitrust litigation ain’t cheap. Big Google will likely pass along these costs to shareholders and advertiser customers, which is bad news for the bulk of domainers utilizing Google-dominant SEO marketing strategies. This is good news for competitive search engines without the heavy burden of Google’s overhead or legal fees. Maybe some other search engine will give Big Google a run for its money.
