The future of search: news before you know you want it

Google may be king of search, but the company's executives aren't satisfied to reign over the current search market. They want to redefine it. Speaking at Berlin’s IFA home electronics event on Tuesday, Google CEO Eric Schmidt explained the next phase of search that Google is working on: automatic search.

In the near future, Google is hoping to deliver answers to questions you haven't answered yet. Done correctly, that could be great for consumers - and even better for brands.

Google's bread and butter is search advertising but it isn't neglecting display advertising. It made that clear when it purchased DoubleClick for $3.1bn in 2008.

Google beats estimates in Q3

Google reported its third quarter earnings after the close of the US stock exchange today and, as it has done more than a few times in the past, the Mountain View company delivered more than analysts were expecting.

Net revenue in the quarter was $4.38bn with earnings per share of $5.89. Analysts had expected $4.24bn in net revenue and $5.42 in earnings per share. All told, total revenue was up 7% year-over-year. So the good news: Google is managing to grow even in a very tough economic environment. The bad news: growth is, by past standards, a bit modest.

Is M&A back?

At this time a year ago, the global economy was imploding. We were in uncharted territory. Banks were on the brink. Lending dried up. Private equity was sitting tight. The wheels of the financial markets had stopped moving.

Flash forward to today. While there's still lots of debate about what the future holds and there's good reason to believe that we're not out of the woods yet, in some industries executives are feeling more confident. In the tech and media worlds, there are signs of life in the M&A markets.

Google continues growing, slowly

All eyes were on Google yesterday afternoon when the search engine giant reported its earnings for the second quarter. Because of its position, Google has served as a sort of proxy for gauging the global recession's effects on the internet economy.

Based on Google's results, there's good news and bad news. The good news: things could be far worse. The bad news: things could be far better.

Google slows, but doesn't disappoint

Google released its Q1 2009 results yesterday. As usual, everybody was watching. From analysts to investors to SEMs, few tech companies command the attention of so many groups when they report their earnings.

Given the questions about the economy and where it may be headed, all eyes were on Google yesterday and as it has done in the past, it didn't disappoint.

Is Twitter a search engine?

What is Twitter? "A microblogging service" doesn't quite fit right. Maybe because that just doesn't sound as cool as Twitter.

A growing number of people are suggesting that Twitter is a search engine. As I was going through my feeds today, I came across several posts discussing just that. This is officially a meme.
