    Yahoo is sort of rudderless up a creek at the moment. They need to sort their unsavory stuff out asap before they can compete in terms of search.

    As far as search goes Google will almost certainly still be in the lead. They have such a huge headstart that Yahoo still haven't caught up after years of trying. (And MSN is around only because it is backed by MS. If it wasn't it would be road pizza by now).

    Well unless they can start sending more traffic, Yahoo isn't even on our radar screen for search... Honestly... I wish there was a real contender right now; Google has WAY too much power (love them/hate them).

    Except that they were a search engine way before Google was around but lost ground big time to the G.

    Define honest. I've seen cases where Yahoo would put their own content before what is actually the most relevant. Granted, I'm no fan of Google either, but at least they do keep the user in mind more often than not.

    What Microsoft has been for operating systems since 95, Google will be for search. They've claimed so much of the market that even if Google's quality goes down a bit, they'll still be in front because of perceptions and branding.

    People simply trust Google. I don't think that's a good idea but there's no resisting the fact that in modern search it's #1 by a long shot. It would seriously take a drastic event to change that, something that totally destroyed people's trust in Google.

    This is a really, really valid concern, I reckon.

    I mean, it's only a matter of time, isn't it? What would happen if -- or should I say when -- a huge earthquake hits SF and wipes out most of the web's companies, their employees and their servers? Apart from the fact that I have friends who live there, my mail is routed through GMail, I rely on Google Calendar to keep me organised, and what about all those other companies and data centres?

    Am I being paranoid? I love the city, but I don't think I'd live there long-term.

    It looks that for a years nobody can compare to Google. So without any doubt i can say that Google will keep its position in 2010.
    Only bizarre wonder must happen that something change in future.

    One of the biggest mistakes anyone can make in business is assuming the future will be like the past just because.

    There are other search engines under development right now. I know there are a couple under development by universities. Ultimately, it will be a combination of marketing and technology that makes a search engine popular.

    Every company stumbles. Google will stumble, too. Whether or not they are still dominant in the future is anybody's guess. The internet is still very young.

    What's the share of Google now? 70% ?? 80% ?? And Yahoo has to share with other search engines for the remaining 20-30%.

    My guess, in 2010, is that it would still be Google in the lead.

    Don't go by those numbers as Alta Vista had the same lead before Google took it away in short order. The big difference nowadays is the money in search and that Google is constantly seeking to improve their service. That's why they will still be in the lead in two years.

    Google will lead in all the areas. Yahoo & MSN are too confused to know whr they are heading.

    Google will remain #1 in term of search in 2010.

    But what about 2020, 2030? Will things change?

    Also, another major factor, according to research, the internet bandwidth usage is already at its full potential, so to have another monster search engine to beat Google, seems unrealistic, at least for the near future.
