I am a currently writing my thesis on the search industry and am looking for SEO practitioners who would be prepared to answer a series of questions. I am not looking for technical information or opinions about algorithms for the major search engines. My focus is more on the major search engines as players in the marketplace, how they think and how they behave. What is also of interest is your opinions on how they are trying to effect the future shape of the industry.

If you are prepared to give me a hand on this, please send me your email address to cvkostrewa at hotmail and I will send you the questionnaire (excel format)

Many thanks,
