Google steps into banner ad world


Cue shake-up in marketing departments...

Google is taking a big step toward becoming an online banner-advertising network as the market for brand ads heats up.


Beginning today, the search giant will start allowing advertisers to display animated image ads on third-party partner sites - a first for Google and a departure from company founders' early stance against such web advertising. (Google itself still shows only text ads on its site.)

Google will also allow advertisers to designate on which third-party websites their ads will appear, whether it's large partner sites like The New York Times or smaller pages.

The move is another first for Google and could resolve a longstanding complaint among advertisers who want more control of how and where they target promotions. Previously Google advertisers could bid only on keywords to appear in text ads across any of hundreds of related sites in its network.

Finally, to take advantage of the program, advertisers must bid for placement on a cost per impression (CPM) basis, as opposed to Google's stock in trade cost-per-click (CPC) search ads. CPMs are modelled more closely to brand advertising like TV commercials in which marketers pay based on the number of people who see the ad. In contrast, marketers pay only for CPC ads when people click.

Google's Earnings Jump 477%

Google Inc. yesterday reported that its first-quarter profit more than quadrupled and revenue nearly doubled because of surging online ad sales. The news, disclosed after the close of the regular trading day, sparked a rally in the search engine giant's stock price.

For the three months ended March 31, Google reported profit of $369.2 million ($1.29 a share), up from $64 million (24 cents) in the first quarter last year. Revenue, almost entirely from online advertising on Google and its partner Web sites, increased 93 percent, from $651.6 million to $1.3 billion this year.

Google search gets personal


Google on Wednesday will begin to offer people custom accounts to search over their personal query history, in a move to outdo rivals and endear Web surfers.

The search king will unveil My Search History, another of its experimental services that takes a page from long-standing "My" programs from Yahoo, Microsoft's MSN and others. However, unlike typical personal portal services, such as customized stocks and headlines, Google's feature will focus exclusively on archiving personal search histories for later recall.

"We have a relationship with our users, and extending the depth of that relationship to provide more information" will be beneficial to them, said Alan Eustace, a vice president of engineering at Google.

The company's search history feature lags those of many rivals, including Yahoo, Ask Jeeves and Amazon.com's A9.com. Analysts say that has been a previous weakness for the No. 1 search provider in a heated race to innovate. Google has offered a similar history feature for its downloadable desktop software, but this is a first for Web access.

Google UK launches maps and local search


Google UK has finally introduced the local search and mapping tools that were launched in the US earlier this year.

Revealed late on Tuesday, Google UK Maps and Local Search are two services built around an interactive map. The mapping service allows users to get accurate directions between two UK destinations while Local Search provides listings of local services, such as restaurants, and indicates their position on the map.

For example users in Soho, London, searching for a bar in their neighbourhood, enter the keyword "Bar", plus their postcode or "Soho" into the search fields and Google local search produces a list of nearby bars. Each result is accompanied by a phone number, street address and links to related sites. Users can also search by street name, London Underground station or airport. The local business information is supplied through a new partnership between Google UK and the online arm of the Yellow Pages, Yell.com.

Google sues Froogles.com


Google has sued Froogles.com, charging the rival shopping search engine with trademark infringement.

Mountain View, Calif.-based Google, the No. 1 search engine, filed a 68-page complaint against Froogles.com in the Eastern District Court of New York. The complaint alleges that Froogles.com proprietor Richard Wolfe, a New York state resident, illegally traded on Google's famous name and search brand for profit with a "nearly identical" mark.

"Upon information and belief, the defendant selected the mark Froogles with full knowledge of Google's prior rights in its Google name and mark," according to the filing. "As between the parties, Google is the senior user of marks that incorporate the formative--Oogle for Internet search services."

Google asked the court to shut down its rival and order transfer of the domain name, among other relief.

Google.org


"I accidentally visited google.org recently and ended up at a different Google site that appears to be a placeholder for Google's future foray into the world of philanthropy. A quote from Sergey Brin & Larry Page is there now, 'We hope that someday this institution will eclipse Google itself in overall world impact by ambitiously applying innovation and significant resources to the largest of the world's problems.' Not much to see there now, but it's certainly refreshing to see a successful company leveraging their success to do good.

Google Preps Video Distribution Service




While online music stores begin to gain acceptance among the recording industry and consumers alike, Google is looking to a future beyond just audio. The company is preparing a video distribution platform that provides a complete ecosystem of services for content producers, publishers and end-users.

Google began testing its prototype video search engine in January, which scours the closed captioning text of television shows from a variety of channels. Users can view still images from a segment, but due to unsettled licensing issues, cannot see video clips nor read full transcripts.

Google Goes Local With Mobile Search


Search engine giant Google is taking its mobile device offering in a new direction with the launch of local services that deliver maps, directions and business listings to advanced mobile phones and other wireless handhelds.

The company has added a link to its site that enables those with XHTML-enabled mobile devices to enter a search term and a location to receive map results from Google Local.

The local services are initially available in the U.S. and Canada.

Google bosses work for a buck. A year


The founders of Google are getting a pay cut - they'll get just a dollar each this year.

Sergey Brin and Larry Page will get the nominal payment and no other bonuses or share options according to a regulatory filing made late last week.

Company chief executive Eric Schmidt also took the pay cut in spring last year - just before the company floated.

Before the cut Brin and Page received $150,000 and Schmidt got $250,000 a year. But Brin and Page also each own more than quarter of Google, worth $7bn, Schmidt has a ten per cent stake worth about $2.7bn.

The news will have little impact on the billionaires. The dollar-a-year chief executive is usually brought in to save companies in almost terminal decline - Steve Jobs took a dollar-a-year to return to Apple in 1996.

Google intros Q&A service

Google Inc. on Thursday began delivering factual answers for some queries at the top of its results page, to save users from having to navigate over to other sites and look for the information.

For example, if a user enters the query "Portugal population," Google returns the answer -- 10.5 million -- along with a link to the Web page where the information came from, which in this case is the population page of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency's Factbook.

The query "who is Jane Fonda?" triggers the answer "... is an Academy Award winning American actress, model, writer, producer, activist and philanthropist" and provides the link to the Wikipedia online encyclopedia's entry for the actress.

A small percentage of queries currently trigger these factual answers, but the service, called Google Q&A, is in its early stages, said Peter Norvig, Google's director of search quality. Currently, Google Q&A is strong in areas such as geography, information about famous people and physical facts, such as the size of planets, he said. Google will continually work to broaden the service's scope of topics and to improve its capability to deliver more complex answers, he said.

Other search engine providers such as Ask Jeeves Inc., Yahoo Inc. and America Online Inc. also offer features similar to this one, but Google doesn't feel it's late to the game, Norvig said. All search engines are moving toward resolving queries in this manner, and the quest for that is just beginning, he said.

Google feeds this service with information from Web sites it considers reliable, but it hasn't established formal relationships with any content provider whose information is being used for this feature, Norvig said. Google doesn't expect that the owners of the Web sites will complain over the possibility that this new service will steal traffic away from them, Norvig said. On the contrary, being featured at the top of Google's results list will give these Web sites great exposure, and will likely result in increased traffic, he said.

Google bulks up Mini search appliance


Google has doubled the capacity and lowered the price of its lowest-end search appliance, the company said on Wednesday.

The Google Mini, which is designed for small and midsize businesses, can now index up to 100,000 documents or unique URLs--double its previous volume. The company also reduced the price to $2,995, from $4,995 when the product first came out in January.

Despite being best known for its public search engine, the company has also been plugging away at corporate-focused search. To that end, the company sells search appliances, which combine hardware and software to index documents on a company's internal or external Web sites. The new Google Mini's greater capacity and lower price are designed to make the entry-level search appliance more attractive to smaller businesses.

Google adds satellite images to maps


Google has added satellite technology to its mapping service, in a move to outdo competitors Yahoo, Ask Jeeves and others.

The new satellite feature allows consumers to get an aerial photo snapshot of the location for which they are searching. People can enter an address and click on the "Satellite" link to view an area, zoom in or see neighboring locations by moving the cursor.

"Thinking about spending time at the shore this summer? Search for hotels with Google Local and check out the 'beach' in 'beachfront,'" John Hanke, general manager of Google's Keyhole unit, wrote in a blog.

Satellite imaging company Keyhole, which Google acquired in October, provided the technology that allowed the search giant to launch the new mapping feature.

Aerial photos are just the latest tool Google has added to its search service as it battles it out with industry players such as Yahoo, Ask Jeeves and Microsoft. Google, which in February quietly released its Maps beta, is seeking to retain its top spot on the popularity charts, but Yahoo and Microsoft are gaining some ground.

Gmail to thwart phishing with a big red box


'This message may not be from whom it claims to be'

Google's popular free web-based email service is testing phishing protection designed to alert members to potential email fraud attacks.


When a Gmail user opens a suspected phishing message, the software displays a large red dialogue box stating: "Warning: This message may not be from whom it claims to be. Beware of following any links in it or of providing the sender with any personal information." The service also provides a hyperlink to information on Gmail's help pages about email fraud.

Phishing fraud schemes typically use email messages that seem to come from a trusted service provider such as a bank or an online retailer. The messages contain links to websites that also seem to belong to those businesses, but that attempt to fool people into handing over sensitive information such as passwords and credit card numbers.

Gmail will also remove all live hyperlinks from suspect HTML-based emails to protect people's systems from potentially fraudulent websites. The addresses of the sites can still be accessed by examining the original code of the email, a feature that Gmail provides.

Google queues up personal video


Google will begin archiving personal video clips as part of its ever-expanding search service, company co-founder Larry Page said on Monday.

We're going to start taking video submissions from people" in the next few days, Page told a crowd at the National Cable & Telecommunications Association show in San Francisco. Later, in response to a reporter's question, he called the move an "experiment in video blogging."

The announcement comes as the Mountain View, California-based company is ramping up ambitious video search plans. In January, it unveiled Google Video, an engine that lets people search the text of TV shows. The service scours programming from PBS, Fox News, C-SPAN, ABC and the NBA, among others, making broadcasts searchable the same day.

Google adds real-time stock, ride info


Google has added real-time stock prices to its line-up of free offerings, along with a ride service for locating taxis and shuttles.

Adding to its existing 20-minute-delayed stock quotes, Google last week started making real-time stock quotes available both through its Web site.

"As a Google user, it always bugged me to have to go to other Web sites to get stock quotes," Katie Stanton, a Google business product manager, wrote in the company's corporate blog. "Now we get a direct feed of market data, so all you have to do is type in a ticker symbol like INDU or SUNW and the search results will include the latest exchange and real-time ECN quote, intraday chart, volume and market cap."

ECNs, or Electronic Communication Networks, are private financial trading systems that together process about a quarter of the Nasdaq's volume, according to Yahoo. ECN quotes may differ slightly from official stock market quotes. Yahoo offers free ECN quotes but charges US$9.95 for streamed actual quotes.

Gmail has also provided a prominent 'Report Spam' button to its users. Any messages reported as spam get sent to a separate folder and Google's anti-spam software is notified. The company's help pages boast that "the more spam you mark, the better our system will get at weeding out those annoying messages".

In 2004, Google added a similar but less obvious button to its service, inviting users to 'Report Phishing'.

Google competitors Yahoo and Microsoft could not be reached for comment on whether their Web-based e-mail services offered users phishing protection.

Google Gulp


Quench your thirst for knowledge.

At Google our mission is to organize the world's information and make it useful and accessible to our users. But any piece of information's usefulness derives, to a depressing degree, from the cognitive ability of the user who's using it. That's why we're pleased to announce Google Gulp (BETA) with Auto-Drink (LIMITED RELEASE), a line of "smart drinks" designed to maximize your surfing efficiency by making you more intelligent, and less thirsty.

Think fruity. Think refreshing.

Think a DNA scanner embedded in the lip of your bottle reading all 3 gigabytes of your base pair genetic data in a fraction of a second, fine-tuning your individual hormonal cocktail in real time using our patented Auto-Drink technology, and slamming a truckload of electrolytic neurotransmitter smart-drug stimulants past the blood-brain barrier to achieve maximum optimization of your soon-to-be-grateful cerebral cortex. Plus, it's low in carbs! And with flavors ranging from Beta Carroty to Glutamate Grape, you'll never run out of ways to quench your thirst for knowledge.

How to get Gulped?

You can pick up your own supply of this "limited release" product simply by turning in a used Gulp Cap at your local grocery store. How to get a Gulp Cap? Well, if you know someone who's already been "gulped," they can give you one. And if you don't know anyone who can give you one, don't worry that just means you aren't cool. But very, very (very!) soon, you will be.

Google plans to double Gmail capacity


Google plans to offer a bottomless cup of storage with its Gmail Web-based e-mail service, dramatically raising the bar for rivals in the sharply competitive business for the second time in a year.

The Mountain View, Calif.-based Web giant on Friday plans to double the free storage on Gmail from 1GB to 2GB, said Georges Harik, Gmail product management director. After that, Google will add a yet-to-be-determined amount of extra storage daily, with no plans to stop.

The move highlights the seemingly inexhaustible storage needs of a small group of heavy e-mail users, and the sharply falling costs of online storage. Lifting pre-defined storage caps for Web-based e-mail could have broader ripple effects, Harik said, changing the way people think about quotas from something that is set in advance to something that grows with the user.
