The Future Of Google

More and more users use Adblocks. For me I have almost an ad free life. No more Television, no News Papers, when I want to watch a movie I go to Google Movies, all advertisement free. And now Google Search and Youtube totally ad free. But what is the future of these services, which generate their income through advertisements.

Will they start to bypass the Adblocks, like on Facebook I still see ads and these big companies have the best programmers on the market. But browser addons like these Adblocks are strong as well, the battle of advertising. Maybe in the future we will have to pay for these services, I would because I like them.

Is the dream of internet advertising for the companies soon over? I think they will find a solution, but what will it be. Or is the solution an ad free life like I have at the moment, but the whole system needs advertising. How will they advertise new products, new companies or new services?

In the meantime, Aloha, ad free surfing…


Facebook Alexa Rank What Happened

Haven’t been a while on Facebook but today I decided to visit it and I checked its Alexa Rank. I saw it is only ranked global on 10. position. There was a time it was ranked almost better than Google. Yes Google still has the first position and Youtube second position. Google is still leading on Alexa Ranking.

I see there are a lot of chinese websites before Facebook, maybe they will as well beat Google, it’s a big market China. Yes of course Facebook is still the biggest social network worldwide, there are about 2.8 billion users. I think they don’t worry about its Alexa Rank, maybe chinese users use more the Alexa Toolbar, because Alexa only counts traffic from users with its Toolbar.

I think Facebook hasn’t lost users, but maybe they have reached the limit of growing. And there are countries they have their own big social networks and anyways there are many social networks around worldwide, it’s a big competition for them. It will be harder as well to generate income if the users use more and more adblockers.
