Google's Slip Won't Change Product Search (Or Why You Still Need Ezeedata)
Many analysts have begun to throw their opinions in on Google's latest earnings miss - specifically the slowing in the search giant's core business (from 33% to 25% in Q4). This article in Business Insider theorizes that mobile search is far less profitable than standard search, and indicates that Amazon's rise might be taking a huge bite out of Google's success.
If Edgenet's success rode on organic search and Google's ability to rule the internet, Q4 of 2011 would have delivered us some sobering news.
Instead, our success hinges on demand for complete, rich product data. And that demand is only going to increase. Whether the shoppers are on Google, Bing, Amazon, eBay, they're all looking for product data to make their buying decision.
No one does data like Edgenet. And while customer retail platforms may change, shoppers continue to demand more and better product data.
