[...] This issue puzzled me a lot when Easton posted it. The benefits are clear, there are so many cases to prove that it works, and the best thing is - it doesn’t require a lot of resources to start a corporate blog! So why then hasn’t corporate blogging taken off yet? Will it really happen in 2007 as I’ve predicted? [...]

WOW... all those predictions are really interesting and after being bombarded with spam recently, I tend to agree with the spam thing :) Look forward to seeing how your preditions pan out of the year.

Haha.. according to the news, Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt said YouTube “complements Google’s mission to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”... So Google is not only about search huh! But I'd agree that they are expanding too fast... I think it is possible to build Internet giants, but at a slower rate.

It's the Law of Nature. It's the Yin and Yang of the universe. To put it simply, whatever goes up must come down. Yes, Google has become too big for what it intended originally. I believe Google has peaked if not peaking soon. And going down is the only direction for Google. As the Internet grows, Google dominance will weaken. Buying does not make Google stronger as a search engine. Does it? As long as Eric Schmidt is the CEO, if you want to tell what is going to happen to Google, study what happened to Novell.

Shi, so from you response you feel that Google will grow too big for itself? I think your third point is great - there is demand for multimedia searching, I think (but not in 2007) search engines will learn to categorize images, sound and video, not based on tags, but on the real content!

My 6 Predictions for 2007: 1. Technorati becomes the search engine of choice. 2. Microsoft will gain search engine market share while Google declines. 3. Focus switch to multi-media search instead of textual content search. 4. Smartphones prices drop with increase in functionalities and battery life. Need to design your web page smaller screen. 5. HSDPA(High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) becomes the standard while 3G fades out. 6. A good year to invest in Indonesia and stay low on Thailand.

Hi Kian Ann, Thanks for tagging me. :). I agreed that spam email is on the rising therefore it make it difficult for marketers nowadays to get people name and email address even though they are genuine. Therefore I think we need to make a change in a way that we present our material to our visitor so as to attract their attention. Instead of giving an free report now maybe we now need to give free videos just to have new sign up. As for the videos, indeed not many people know how to edit a video but I had found a resource that you can learn from it but you have to pay $67 for it though. If you wish to learn more you can go and take a look. Hope this information help in your business! John
