At the start of 2013 there is a fair amount of discussion about the activity of search.
There was the ‘victory’ by Google in the FTC antitrust ruling in the US. There is the hope of the anti-Google crowd that the European Commission will play hard ball with the search giant in their antitrust / anti-competitive crusade to bring the search giant to its knees.
Now two articles appear recently that focus on two very interesting areas of search that COULD happen. When you see a lot of these kinds of posts where people are playing the ‘what if?’ game it means there is either a lot of unrest in the marketplace OR there is little real news to report on. It’s probably a little of both but let’s look at two opinions that have surfaced about the future of the search industry.
