Ok as a google user and an internet guru I want to share with Live.com my take on why are they not numero one. Even though I dont work for a mayor internet portal or anything like that I have years of experience and can run circles around most fools that do this for a living..
I think it is time to have a real number two in the internet search "WAR" . Maybe even a new number one.
The reason I want to see live.com make it because first I own MSFT, second I love Microsoft, third I always go for the under dog on any fight. (Love Boxing and UFC)
Ok enough bla bla bla here is my take and Microsoft take notes :-):
- Understand is a WAR
In a war there is a winner and a looser. Go for the jocular. By continuously being on Google’s face you will create enough buzz. A lot of people do not know live even exists as an alternative to Google or Yahoo. If you are in the news you can bet your behind everyone will know about it. Try it and maybe like it.
After your offer for Yahoo you saw Google smack. They quickly ended that *** knowing that people would realize that they want no number two and will work to prevent it.
- Forget about Yahoo.com.
Portals advertising is DOWN and will only get worst. Wanting to buy yahoo was a bad move. Your stock tanked 5+ dollars and gave Yahoo 9+. What that told people is the Microsoft does not have what it takes to get a piece of Google’s market share. The money is on SEARCH not portals.
Plus Yahoo is over priced too much money for a portal. A good move now would be to announce you are taking back the offer to buy Yahoo.com. And say something like: After looking at all the options we think that PORTALS are a dying breed. You have made a perception that Yahoo is a dying breed. We think that live.com is the best choice for internet searches and bla bla bla. Oh yea bring out the fact that there is a lot of fraud in Google.
Yahoo stock will TANK and many advertisers like my self will not consider them for any advertising needs and will go to the next obvious choice. LIVE.COM. Once their stock hits 9 USD they will come back begging for another offer. At that time 9 USD per share sounds to me what their internet search is worth.
- AdSense like product
Google early on realized that in order to be number one you had to share the wealth. Now many webmasters have sites using AdSense as their sponsor. Guess who they promote when they have a friend new to the internet. Microsoft has a beta like AdSense. Stop with the playing around and LAUNCH IT. GO FOR IT. Ahh yeah and include all countries.
Just a simple web. Take out any colors like the image for search is greend and a turn off.
I will continue later I got to go……

- "AdSense like product"
i agree that they had realized it earlier, and this the reason why they are the 'Google' right now, they have made good money so far with it. but now they have competition coming from all directions, there are several other ad networks that are really doing good like Bidvertiser, Clicksor, Oxado, YPN etc... some of them are offering better money than adsense!
