Even with the economy slowing down, researchers and analysts believe that people will not stop searching the net for gaining knowledge about any thing on the earth. So, with this notion it will not be wrong to say that Google will see some more growth in the future, even if there is no certainty of other search engines.
This weekend WIRED wrote:
"Google continues to gain market in search queries while continuing to face a bevy of competitors," Peck released in a research note today. "Further, GoogleĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s efforts in online video, radio and print have added a layer of value that is absent from its competitorĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s portfolio of offering and which has the potential to yield significant financial rewards."
And when it comes to Washington Post, it adds:
"Your Googles and Apples of world are doing great. TheyĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve really been really innovative, which is what technology is sort of all about,Ă˘â‚¬Âť said Karen Dolan, an analyst at investment research provider Morningstar. In the third quarter, tech funds showed a 6.6 percent return, Morningstar said. The funds were up 17.8 percent for the first three quarters of the year and 24.9 percent for the past 12 months."
The other search engines are also talked about in both the articles. But it is Google who dominates the search industry. Yahoo! Along with other search engines are more like a follower company that are trying hard to keep up with GoogleĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s innovation and ideas. In fact, they still have a long way to go before making it to the top position.
