this highly competitive market.


The market now, however, is more mature with a necessary
path dependency to gather data on both the content of
webpages and the search history of users.


Therefore, the threat of new entrants in the internet
search market is relatively


Google’s ad system is a reliable source of income
because both the ad

So as long as Google maintains its market

Search Engine Market Share

(Jan 2010

Apr 2011)

Current Competitors


The competitive rivalry is strong and
ongoing in this industry because large
amounts of advertising dollars flow to the
website that has captured the largest
volume of searches.

Customers



No single buyer has a controlling interest.


No single account contributes more than 3%
to net revenue


Less than 5% of the revenue is generated by
any given network partner site


Attract both large companies and small
“mom
-
and
-
pop shops” keeping buyer
power low.


Potential Substitutes


There really is no suitable substitute for
search.


A substitute product may be invented in the
future, but there are no obvious substitutes to
organizing information on the Internet.


Information can be organized in different
ways including categories and sorted by
date, but Google provides tools to complete
these tasks as well as conduct searches.



Google has positioned itself well to
weather each of Porter’s Five Forces of
Competition as well as stay afloat in a
turbulent external environment. Google’s
ability to please its stakeholders will
continue to define the success of the
venture and the future of the company.

So, what’s the Google
strategy



What’s behind all the actions
we have seen Google take over
the years?

Expand places to show ads




Google’s revenue is based on advertising.



You Tube, Gmail have been developed to attract
audiences for its ads.

Business model



1.
Google introduces a smart, innovative and quite risky
business model
-
Adwords
.



2. Still today
Adwords

is the main source of revenues
of Google Inc.

Brand building



Google worked very hard on Brand Building. It
seems that brand building was much more important
to them than just revenues and profits



The strategy worked. And it was a key asset in the
subsequent IPO(Initial Public Offering) at the
Nasdaq.

Personalization

1.Search engineers have spent the last 40years working
on it, but now it’s time to focus on the searcher!

2.The Google toolbar can report search terms and Web
site.

3.Google Analytics reports all activity on a Web site.

4.Google Website Optimizer knows which variations of
your message work best.


Value Chain of Google



Nobody pays to use Google. So we are not Google’s customer,
if we are not Google’s customer, and search is not Google’s
product, then what is?


How can we even get the payers straight? Well advertisers,
specifically users of Google’s Ad Words service, are Google ‘s
customer. And traffic delivered to customer websites is the
product. And the ability to explicitly control what traffic ends
up on what websites is the whole of Google’s value chain

Sales and
marketing

Customer
service

conclusion


Keep the leader search engine position.


Be being perfect their service and
products.


Take more attention with their
customers’ individual privacy.


Freedom is limited, please do in Rome as
Rome does.
