UK newspapers are becoming increasingly aggressive in their Google strategies, with more and more buying search terms to direct readers looking for news stories to their websites.
Back in October, we covered an article by Heather Hopkins at Hitwise UK, which looked into The Sun’s search marketing strategy. The article showed how the tabloid was pursuing a more aggressive paid search strategy, with some success.
Sweden-based The Pirate Bay grew into the world's largest torrent tracker last year, doing a roaring trade in illegally shared TV shows, movies and more. Law enforcers shut the site down in May, but it resurfaced, more popular than ever, just days later to torment the entertainment industry again.
Google looks set for another ad partnership with a social networking site – although this one's not on the same scale as the huge, £500m deal it struck with Myspace last year.
Bambi Francisco reports that the search giant has tied up an agreement with Friendster, one of the first social networking ventures, but one that has since fallen way behind the likes of Myspace and Bebo.
I foolishly took a trip into central London on Saturday, to try and find a new cricket bat at Lillywhites. As I’ve been abroad for the past few years and only recently returned to the UK, I didn’t know that the store had undergone some severe changes.
Suffice to say it is not a rewarding experience - particularly for anyone looking for sporting equipment rather than clothing, and for anyone with a pram. It's so full you can hardly get down the aisles, and the one lift it has doesn't go to all floors...
Anyway, this unhappiness could have been avoided, of course, if Lillywhites had its own website and I’d been able to check its selection beforehand.
Yahoo! had been providing search advertising for MIVA since 2001 but this will end as of January 27, when MIVA will begin a new two year deal with Google.
Happy New Year from everyone at E-consultancy. We’ve picked out a few interesting stories that came out over the holiday season, in case you missed them…
Polly Gowers is the managing director of Everyclick, the UK-based search engine which gives away half of its gross revenues to good causes. Launched last year, it syndicates search results from Ask.com and is being used by several charities as a fundraising tool.
We asked Polly a few questions about how the company has been able to influence users’ search habits, and how its new round of funding is going.
Andy Beal at MarketingPilgrim has an interesting article, in which he reports claims from Google that their click fraud rate is less then 2%.
Andy has been talking to Google’s business product manager for trust and safety, Shuman Ghosemajumder, about click fraud detection. He was shown a PowerPoint presentation which was normally for Google employees' eyes only.
Dean Hunt at Deano’s World blog has received a hilarious / threatening letter from a bemused retailer who doesn’t remotely understand how Google works.
Google has continued its push into traditional media with a beta launch of its radio advertising system in the US.
The search giant said it had begun testing the Audio Ads service with 20 AdWords customers and over 700 radio stations, having reworked the technology of dMarc Broadcasting, the radio advertising company it bought almost a year ago.
Google has allowed a case against a click-fraudster to be dismissed, amid speculation that the search engine giant was reluctant to open up its click fraud procedures for public scrutiny.
The charges against Michael Anthony Bradley, who attempted to extort $150,000 from the company by threatening to generate millions of false clicks through his 'Google Clique' software, were dropped on November 22.
China’s biggest search engine, Baidu, has announced that it will launch in Japan early next year.
China has an estimated 125 million internet users, and Baidu.com currently has a 62% share of the Chinese search engine market, up 15% from 2005. Google has the second largest share on 25%, falling 8% since last year.
