    This might be a good point, but with ever changing worlds, and with smart phones with almost every man and his dog now owning one, it will make the way for the next competitor. And we all know online, they can come pretty quickly.

    The article written about Google listed by the OP is completely nuts. The analyst has no clue what is happening. Google GREW 24 percent year over year (revenue) on a currency adjusted basis. MOBILE revenue tripled year over year. The guy who wrote the article over at cnbc is quoting a moron.

      Very true. Google is no where near its end. People need to get answers from somewhere and frankly, the children of today have been born into the notion that Google is the one and only place to find good information, quickly. It's not going anywhere.

    Oh, and the analyst quoted was talking about how Yahoo used to be the search king. What!! Yahoo was NEVER a search leader. Not even close. Instead it was excite webcrawler infoseek go, etc. Google won because they cleaned up on advertising and build great tools.

    It will be interesting to see how Google evolve over the years, but I don't think SEO will disappear. It might get harder yes!

    I remember back in 1999 when Yahoo was trading around 118 most investors were not going to give up yahoo stock, because they did not see very far into the future.

    They thought that yahoo would be the big dog on the porch, they were wrong.

    The idea that any one company is incapable of failure because of past performance is an idea that is dangerous to entertain for long.

    Google is not the same company that it once was, the founders are mostly uninvolved in the company, they have spend a lot of money chasing new revenue streams, always falling back on its advertising.

    The thing is that many consumers are going direct to the sales channel, bypassing Google completely, Amazon is a prime example, (pardon the pun)

    Back in the early days of its development, (amazon) purchased a pant load of server hardware, to the tune of several million dollars, they were roundly criticized for wasting money. Jokes were told about how Amazon would be broke in a year.

    No one is joking about Amazon now.

    The single biggest mistake that Google is making right now is to focus only on big business excluding the consumer from the process.

    Amazon focused on the consumer, the difference is very clear.

    I find that this little literary gem is a great reminder of how things can change over time.

    Sometime when you're feeling important;

    Sometime when your ego's in bloom

    Sometime when you take it for granted

    You're the best qualified in the room,

    Sometime when you feel that your going

    Would leave an unfillable hole,

    Just follow these simple instructions

    And see how they humble your soul;

    Take a bucket and fill it with water,

    Put your hand in it up to the wrist,

    Pull it out and the hole that's remaining

    Is a measure of how you will be missed.

    You can splash all you wish when you enter,

    You may stir up the water galore,

    But stop and you'll find that in no time

    It looks quite the same as before.

    The moral of this quaint example

    Is do just the best that you can,

    Be proud of yourself but remember,
    There's no indispensable man.

      Amazon is a retail store: it sells to consumers. Google is a search engine: it's used by everyone.

      Small business and marketers get upset by Google because of its decisions it makes which help the end-users' experience. I never hear an end-user complain about Google as a search engine.

      That article was somehow linking Google's sluggish implementation of ads on mobile search to being a bad search engine on mobile devices. It's still Google at the end of the day and less ads could be seen as a plus for the end-user.

      Indispensable Man by Saxon White Kessinger circa 1959, good stuff.
