Woohoo it’s Friday?

Let’s celebrate with today’s Picks:

  • A Russian company is suing Google for $3 billion, claiming AdSense infringes on its patent. Whatever.
  • The recession is going to reduce the growth rate of local online advertising from 47% growth this year to just 8% next year. Ouch!
  • E-consultancy has advice for publishers looking to improve their site search. Noted.
  • Live Search Maps has added Photosynth images.
  • How cool is the new "Reactions" feature, just added to Blogger?

  • SEO Tips South Africa

    Sueing Google could be quite profitable if you have a watertight case….otherwise it will be like sueing any multinational company…they’ll keep you at arms lenght until you run out of cash….ouch!

  • go green

    That is really interesting about the adsense. That would be interesting if they actually won the case against google.

    Thanks for the picks, but will suing such a highly reputable company like Google sovle the problem?

    I can only hope your advertising growth rate is wrong, but I fear that it will be close.

    If Google doesn’t win the case, then they’re in for ruin, you know $3 Bln is a lot of hard cash even for an industry giant like google!

    Ouch indeed, online advertising growth from 47 to 8%? not cool…
    As for suing Google.. I can’t say that’s a particulary good idea… It’ll end up turning, simply, into a war of attrition.. and that’s a mighty deep hole to be throwing your money into

    Suing google – very nice they made good money on this

  • Internet Entrepreneur

    The Russians will never win this case. This is absurd. They will however gain some good PR.

    I suppose we should consider ourselves lucky that we work in an industry that is still growing unlike so many others where growth looks an increasingly remote possibility.
