Everything's an equation. Something's moved and its not going back.
Some thoughts ....
I don't think the brand advantage is safe from the Google squeeze either. We often see things like when a new strategy is introduced sales are removed from the original product, but ultimately it leads to an expanded market. But for the moment that's academic and things are moving at a furious pace. So where does Google see growth and how does it effect small/medium organic listings?
Why are mega brands confident to pay billions to acquire big brands recently that offer meta search in the face of Google? Downstream this effects small/medium business'.
Why isn't the promotion of brands in the organic search not creating a cannibalization of ad revenue.
Are there simply 23% or so less organic slots overall in the layouts. What's happening?
Any perspective on this?
