It's funny about all of this talk about Google perhaps going public or what it would do for their reputation amongst the other engines/directories, but the greatest part is that even while staying public, they'd probably do better than all of their public rivals. When I'm in business meetings with clients, they always use Google. Friends in college say Google is the best place to find things, plus it's their start page in their computer labs. My family, and friends of the family are constantly talking about Google. No one I know uses Yahoo or MSN or even have heard of Overture before. I think even if Google stays private (which they should), they'll do even better than all of their competition, and still keep the search world happy with relevant results.
