    Review of Leading Search Engines in 2012

    Review of the different search enginesFor most people nowadays, their search engine of choice is likely to be Google with an estimated market share of 66%. Like most others, I have been using Google for many years now, it is the first thing I see when I load up my browser and when I want to search for something, I generally load Google straight up.

    Recently however, I was curious about the other search engines out there, old and new, that I have never really dedicated any time to. I couldn’t honestly say that I have enough experience of any other search engines to fully justify being dedicated to Google. So it was high time I checked them all out, and this post outlines my findings.

    Can Internet Users Trust Review Sites?

    TripadvisorWith the news that the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has politely requested that TripAdvisor cease any claims suggesting it is a trusted site, where does this leave customer review sites?

    Independent reviews are an important tool for any business seeking to build trust with searchers and search engines alike. A five star rating on TripAdvisor can see hotels and B&B’s overburdened with bookings, whilst a sea of negative comments may make some think again. But with the site effectively being discredited as a trustworthy source by the ASA, how much value can we give these reviews?

    Super Savvy Me: When is Online Advertising Not Advertising?

    Theoretically, Super Savvy Me is a fantastic site for consumers to rate a wide range of products and enjoy decent discounts. However, you don’t need to scratch too far beneath the surface to expose the potentially misleading nature of the site.

    I have to admit, I had never heard of it before a recent national radio advertising campaign. There again, I’m not exactly in their target market. Super Savvy Me is predominantly aimed at female Internet users. Offering, in their own (Meta) words, ‘Ideas, inspiration & wisdom to help you make the most out of life.’

    Online TV Catch Up Service SeeSaw.com to close after 16 months

    SeeSaw TV LogoI remember being drawn into the buzz SeeSaw generated before its launch in February 2010. It had a long planning stage and was incredibly well deployed, so where has it gone wrong and how does the competition fair?

    SeeSaw.com promised to bring together TV shows from a variety of producers. That’s great! Who doesn’t like the simplicity having everything in one place? A great idea on paper and focus groups loved it. It started out with just a selection of BBC, Channel 4 and Five shows with a plan to include selection of high profile US dramas in future following additional funding.

    New London Google Office - Learn with Google Day

    Google LogoYou know you are working in digital marketing when you are actually excited about visiting the Google office. Well, that was me this morning, especially as they have just moved their London office to a brand new building near High Holborn. It’s so new I can even forgive Google for not having it on Google Maps – I’m just bitter because Google maps led me to a small theatre near Covent Garden…

    Visions of Google's Future - Google Glass, AI and Next Gen Search Engines

    HANNOVER, GERMANY - MARCH 10: stand of Google+ on March 10, 2012 at CEBIT computer expo, Hannover, Germany. CeBIT is the world's largest computer expo.Google’s I/O conference gets technology and SEO folks all worked up. It might be for developers, but we’ve all got a stake in Googley goings on. Reading up about it over the weekend, it seems that Google has teased us all with visions of the future – well, the Google-centric version of the future. In Harry’s latest post (Seeing Double – How to Win the Second Screen Revolution), he talks about a future laden with self-driving hover cars and multi-function gesture controlled windows. Sounds cool huh?

    Search Engine Market Share Statistics - January 2012

    A new year and a new development in the ongoing struggle for search engine market share. Last year we spoke about the turning point when Microsoft’s Bing would overtake Yahoo in terms of US market share; well latest figures reveal they have done so, meaning that 2012 has started off great for Bing, and pretty poorly for Yahoo.

    In the UK, the good news for Bing has continued as their share has jumped 0.26% in the last month. All other search engines gained a share of the UK market, with Google being the only one to actually see a drop.
