Google and eBay Get in the Ring!

CBSMarketWatch’s Bambi Francisco takes a new view to the industrial competition between search engines and online shopping entities by suggesting that Google and eBay could become huge rivals in the upcoming years:

Bambi’s Points:

* Both Google and EBay attract a significant pool of potential buyers.
* Both rely on a significant pool of advertisers, like the ones who’ve typically used the classified pages.
* In both situations, a merchant asks: “Which outlet will get me in front of the most people?”

“EBay can boast of its reputable brand name. Its marketplace certainly attracts potential customers as $5.3 billion in products were sold over it in the first quarter.”

“But Google can boast that it’s a great information booth outside of the EBay mall that can direct people right to the store. Google accounts for about 27 percent of the nearly 4 billion searches conducted monthly, according to ComScore. It ranks right behind Yahoo.”
