Comcast May Leave Google For Microsoft Search Partnership
Comcast Signals Unhappiness With Google from the Wall Street Journal reports that Comcast is in talks with Microsoft to see if they would give them a larger piece of the search revenue pie than Google currently does.
Comcast, “one of the biggest non-Google sources of search queries handled by Google,” is expected to earn $70 million this year from Google but reportedly feels it should be making at least $100 million.
In addition to the monetary issues, Comcast feels “Google could do more to boost the number of searches from Comcast.net.”
