|Is Altavista getting desperate?|
| 2:58 pm on Feb 10, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I got a piece of spam from them today.
With a subject:
|AltaVista Keyword Advertising, WIDGETS and related keywords are ava ilable |
Where WIDGETS would be one of the keywords I used for ppc listings at adwords and overture.

Could be. Their market share is down...they need a compelling reason to bring back their traffic and not more marketing spin.
I think they just don't get it -> without people that are into the engine, for the information found there you won't get enough of a user base to make the advertising worth while.
They need rebranding, and repositioning. Altavista.
The name resonates with many of us here...we probably used it, once upon a time.
It's sad, what that great brand has become...they need spin -> about something real.
How long are we going to wait until they deliver? Or will they go out of business first?
