Google, the world's largest search engine, addressed concerns about the company's strategy and growth prospects during a conference call Wednesday afternoon.

During the call, Google's top managers said the company expected to branch out into new markets, such as print and television advertising, and that Google will continue to hire more workers in the San Francisco Bay area where the company is based. Google also ruled out any interest in building a Web browser to compete with Microsoft's Internet Explorer and said that it was making headway in the lucrative local advertising market online.

There are some interesting things in that information. Print and TV advertising! Come one, what's that all about?

Looks like no Google browser, for the time being.

Local seems to be Google's growth opportunity.

Didn't they say a while back that they were going to try and branch into TV and print advertising to make it more affordable for publishers who would normally not appear in those areas. Or was I dreaming...
