Google is the undisputed leader in providing keyword-based search services and as a result the most pervasive, widely used and highly trafficked Search Engine.

Market Dominance

Google's market dominance was solidified when major competitor in the search marketplace Yahoo! (who, while still reeling from having rejected and successfully fended off an aggressive takeover bid from Microsoft) was convinced to sign a search deal with Google (as part of their defense from Microsoft). Many are calling Yahoo!'s move bold and aggressive, and just what the company needed to stave off the Microsoft takeover, however even more will tell you this is the real-world equivalent of having swallowed a poison pill to keep your opponent away just because they feel bad that your time is short. In any case, Google has solidified itself as the world's leading search engine for the foreseeable future.


Censorship

Google has been caught on numerous occasions to be censoring the internet traffic it drives through its search engine, especially by filtering out certain sites, pages, documents and content entries it (or its major partners) has deemed undesirable. This includes but is not limited to:

  • content it or its various teams of moderators (often outsourced consultants) deem "fake news"
  • content "alleged to be offensive" by a sufficiently large number of users (via content "Flagging"/feedback capabilities, which can easily be abused)
  • content deemed undesirable by a government or ruling faction in a country in which they do business (typically just filtered within that country, but sometimes even more controversially extended to other jurisdictions)

Favoritism

Google has been accused of anti-competitive and monopolistic practices, such as bundling exclusively their own products/services in their Chrome browser (as in promoting Google Search over Bing, Yahoo!, DuckDuckGo & other search engines), in their search results (i.e. bubbling up Google-based results above competitors, even without the Google results necessarily being a better match to the query) or on their devices (such as aggressively pushing Google products/services via Android devices and making mandatory Google-related services run in the background, and in some cases even keeping competitors' offerings off the Android platform by blocking sales, downloads and/or listings in the Google Play store).

Technology

Google's technology varies in nature and usage but tends to focus on the management and retrieval of information, with their leading services being those that revolve around their industry and market-leading Search Engine technology. Google's search algorithms tend to use statistical analysis of the link structure of web documents (i.e. indexing and analyzing documents that link to other documents) as opposed to just looking at the number of times a given search keyword appears within a document, web page or other indexed resource.

Limitations

This approach may have limitations, as the amount of links to study increases exponentially.

Business Model

In 2003 Google hired a number of prominent executives form the advertising industry into their executive branch. The company quickly began re-shaping its business model as an academic Search Engine and software provider, into that of a major advertising company focused on selling ad impressions next to the millions of queries and result pages generated through its search engine every day.


Search

The core of Google's technology and original service offering is its Search Engine, built on its massive web index and PageRank algorithms. Since its original launch, "google" has become a household term used synonymously with the appropriate term it describes, search (i.e. "to google something on the web", as opposed to "to search something').

Instant

Suggest

Google Suggest serves two purposes, the first is to attempt to correct spelling mistakes when searching, and the second is to power Google Instant's autocomplete functionality.

Advertising

The company received much criticism about its shift to an ad-focused business model, especially from long-time supporters and advocates of the quality of the search engine. Many criticized the fact that Google had a major, possibly once-in-a-company-lifetime opportunity to revinvent the entire global E-commerce business model and affect the way business is conducted on a global scale, but instead, opted to follow tired old systems and turned to Advertising to generate the majority of their revenues.

AdWords

AdWords is the name of Google's proprietary ad serving solution which serves ads based on particular keywords typed into the system's search engine (at various Google-owned web properties, including Search, Video Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, etc...).

Applications


Search

Google's Search technology is by many accounts the "secret sauce" to the company's success, and at least, it was what initially propelled the name "Google" into a common household term and soon after made it a verb where "googling" something became synonymous with searching for it online.

Rich Snippets

Rich Snippets (also in beta stages known as Microdata/Microformat & RDFa Enhanced Results)[167] are a major initiative to support RDFa and metadata markup on websites in the Google search result rankings, such that a site without RDFa will continue to show up as plain text with a link, while sites with RDFa markup will be displayed with an enhanced result listing, showing additional Semantic information such as large product/service posters and images, star ratings, review summaries, event calendar popups, etc... depending on the type of content and the corresponding markup used to describe it.

Google MOBILE

Google has not been quite as dominant a player in the mobile search engine market as it has been in the PC/browser -based search engine market. As a result the company has released a number of initiatives (such as the Android project and Open Handset Alliance), created hype for a gPhone which was never released, pushed mobile versions of their popular Gmail and Google Maps applications, and even attempted to build their own mobile browser.


Google CHROME

The long-rumored Google web browser, code-named CHROME has been confirmed as of Sep. 1st, 2008. A comic-book/brand roadmap for Chrome was released through a common Google rumor-mill Blogoscoped.

Alphabet

On August 10th, 2015[241] Google spun-off s majority of its businesses (particularly loss-leading and research-focused units) into Alphabet a new holding company for new initiatives and riskier projects, meanwhile profit-driving divisions like Search, Ads, YouTube, Analytics, Maps, GoogleApps for Enterprise, Android mobile OS, Chrome browser will all remain part of Google proper.[242][243][244][245][246][247][248][249][250]

In 2011 Google announced that its Labs experiment will be effectively shutdown, with most projects folded, moved to Google Projects and no longer maintained by staff, or set to move into their own individual Beta period.

Google Ventures

Google’s venture capital arm already has a church-and-state separation from the company’s other endeavors, regularly investing in companies that compete with Google products. That line of separation should be even more stark thanks to the restructuring.

Google Capital

This investment arm focuses on late-state growth companies, and like Google Ventures, operates independently of Google’s consumer-product businesses.
