Most of us have grown up with Google over the last decade. For a long time, Google has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies on the planet. Much of its growth has been organic, but recently this search giant seems to have had challenges to decide what to do next. Although the company has stretched its businesses across the web, from online search, email, social networking, web-based apps, and smart phone development, Google's revenue is still heavily dependent on search-related advertising.

As a marketer, one of your job priorities is to understand your target consumer. We all noticed some changes during the recent economic recession.

When times are tough and people are anxious there are several ways that those people can be influenced. The country has certainly been going through a down turn in terms of economics and prosperity and people are feeling it. Some want to turn that anxiety into fear and blind rage to take advantage of others for their own ends. Others however want to channel that energy in a positive direction.
Last Thursday 2/24/11, Google announced changes to its search formula to push low-quality sites lower in search rankings (those that are of low content value, copy content from other websites, and/or don't provide any new/fresh information to the audience). Word is that the new formula will affect 11.8% of search queries. Unlike numerous former changes, this time Google claims the changes would be hard not to notice.
