Danny Sullivan put on quite a good show at #AZIMA. He began by echoing his Search Engine Land post about Google not dying off and that they are still growing despite a possible 1% shift in market share. http://searchengineland.com/when-losers-are-winners-how-google-can-lose-search-share-still-stomp-yahoo-41779
Arguing that Bing is only making small headway from their offline TV marketing ads push and that when the ads stop this won’t really equate to a trending market shift. Ultimately Bing is only claiming a definitive 2nd place since they bought out Yahoo the other 2nd place contender. Google will be around for a long time… “they’ve been dying for a long time!” So with a dash of good humor Danny debunks the idea that Google is yesterdays news and shows his slight affection for the “Google world.”
Danny made some good points on how Facebook has social down and that Google and Facebook really shouldn’t be fighting each other. Poll of audience and those that are spending on both, only one resp0nded that she pulled some of their Google budget to place ads on Facebook. Most people are willing to spend on both as they are different marketing machines.
Most notable of last nights audience feedback questions. How many of you like Google instant? How many of you hate Google instant?
More hands raised for hating Google instant.
And noteworthy, By raise of hands, Who in here trusts Google?
Most of the audience trusts Google, over a few that do not trust Google.
