Written by Halstatt Pires

Today, Google is based in Mountain View, California. Google prefers email communication, but you can get a live voice by calling (650) 623-4000. If you really want to talk to them, refuse a charge fromrepparttar company onrepparttar 141397 credit card you use for Adwords. They will contact you pretty quickly!

The company went public in 2004 [Symbol: GOOG] and has a stock value of around $250 per share. Larry and Sergey are sickeningly wealthy. One can assume that Andy Bechtolsheim is also doing all right.

The Future

Inrepparttar 141398 last year or so, Google has certainly received its fair share of criticism. PageRank is almost useless in relation to ranking in search results. Atrepparttar 141399 time of this writing, PageRank hasn’t worked for three days, which means a change, shuffle, dance or whatever you want to call it is coming.

Onrepparttar 141400 competition front, things are a bit murky. It seems a week doesn’t go by without a patent lawsuit being filed againstrepparttar 141401 company. MSN and Yahoo have started to raiserepparttar 141402 level of competition and more will be coming. Google’s reliance on AOL as a traffic source is also a bit troubling givenrepparttar 141403 continual loss of market share byrepparttar 141404 company that nearly brought Time Warner down. Gmail is dogged by patent issues, not to mention questions about violations ofrepparttar 141405 privacy of users. All and all, things are not as rosy compared to a few years ago, but they can hardly be called bad.

Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to predicting if Google will become just another search engine. Personally, I think it will, but not because of any ofrepparttar 141406 above. Instead,repparttar 141407 evolution ofrepparttar 141408 Internet suggests there will be a next “big thing.” Who knows, maybe Google will get a Grub [] in its Nutch [].
