    It’s incredible the amount of psychology that goes into marketing. It is truly a game of the mind.

    I know I personally skip over the top highlighted ads on Google and start with the beginning organic ones. I figure just because these ads paid to get there, does not mean they will the right ads.

    I’m glad someone published these thoughts. People talk about factors like social and mobile playing a big role in search. However, these factors are somewhat of a distraction from the real issue at hand, which is quality. In the long run, the search engine that will win is the one that comes up with the business model that aligns user needs and business needs best. Copying Google won’t get anyone there – differentiation through quality will.
