Now Is Time For ATW to Take Market Share
away from Google.

With no end in sight for Google's fiasco serps, now more then ever is the time for ATW to make some serious moves to take market share from Google. ATW has better serps hands down. Webmasters know this now and its only a matter of time before searchers figure it out.

IMHO, ATW/Overture could make a honey of a deal with AOL if they aren't locked into a lease agreement. Better SERPS, PPC and a cheaper agreement for providing search results, the ATW/Overture duo could knock Google out of AOL.

I'm just thinking outloud with that suggestion but ATW/Overture would be foolish not to capitalize on Google's stupidity. Their marketing team needs to burn the midnight oil.

You're not kidding. Does ATW not have a marketing staff? Get some commercials in front of people's eyes & ears!

perhaps they need some seo advice? ;)

seriously though, how did google get where it was in a relatively short time? .. really I can't remember but I think it had something to do with providing the young professionals with a better tool. University teachers adopted it, and not too much later surfers adopted it... I'm guessing the surfers were collage students of five yeras ago (/me raises his hand) who didn't have a defined engine and switched between yahoo/alta/webcrawler (that was me anyway)

so how does alltheweb get into the universities? they can't provide anything that's as significant a change as google was a few years ago, unless google stagnates completely. granted, they're doing what they can to create a better search experience, but if anything, they should have beat google to the market with the toolbar. college students will adopt that, then grow up into professionals, and change the market.

so.. basically I've got no ideas, which is good, because i dont work for alltheweb.
