Ugg Boots,Seller Boycott Fails To Impress eBay

,We recentlywhat appeared to be a new kind of search experience from Google,
called ―What Do You Love?‖Google has now officially announced the project,
with a bit of explanation about the reason it exists. Google’s Andy Berndt:A
while back, a few of us wanted to make a little tool that we could use to
show just about anybody more of what Google makes. That led to some simple
ideas, and then a few more ideas and ultimately, to a challenge: how we could
connect people to products they might not know about and may find useful,
but make the discovery relevant to them and keep it fun.Playing about with
that challenge produced a website——that we hope meets at least some of the
challenge by demonstrating how different Google products can show you
different things about any particular search query. Like always, you’re the
judge, so . Type in something that you love—polar bears, space travel, pickup
trucks, Lady Gaga, early Foghat—whatever strikes your fancy (for some reason,
the results for always crack us up, so try that if you’re momentarily
stumped). No matter what it is, we’ll give you back something that will let
you get even more into what you love.As I demonstrated previously, results
pages will show you a graphical interface with boxes for results in Image
Search, Maps, Google Alerts, Patent Search, Google Trends, Product Search,
Sketchup, YouTube, Books, Google Translate, Blog Search, Picasa, Google News,
Google Earth, Google Mobile Search, etc. It also has boxes for various Google
tools.For example, if I tell Google I love ―hamburgers‖ it will also show
Gmail box telling me to email somebody about hamburgers, a Google Calendar
box telling me to plan an event about hamburgers, a Google Voice box telling
me to call somebody about hamburgers, a Google Moderator box telling me to
organize a debate about hamburgers (a fantastic idea), a Google Groups box
telling me to start a hamburgers discussion group (another great idea), and
a Chrome box telling me to access hamburgers stuff on the web, faster.As far
as sharing goes, you have the option to share results pages via Gmail, Google
Buzz, or the +1 button. I’m still wondering when we’re going to see a straight
Google+ share button. I know everybody’s talking about Google Buzz, but I
hear that Google+ isn’t too shabby.,,Several times in the past, eBay sellers
protested changes in site policies with boycotts. Though sellers received
more attention this time, they had the same result in effecting a change:
zero.,eBay Logo,(Photo Credit: Ebay),The impact of thecomes down to a they
said/they said kind of argument. Sellers claim a multi-million listing
downturn during the boycott week, while the company claims it had no effect.At
one point, sellers boycotting eBay due to an increase in Final Value fees
claimed a drop to 12 million listings would represent a victory. One third
party count at DealsCart found a low of some 13.5 million listings on one
day last week.eBay shrugged off the boycott without comment, other than to
claim the action had no effect. We don’t see that as being completely true,
since thanks to the Internet this boycott received significant attention
leading into its run.Ultimately it played out in the way we believed it would.
EBay isn’t going to shift out of a volume-driven model it wants to engage,
by rewarding bigger sellers with generous fee discounts.There could be away
of thinking in place at eBay’s San Jose HQ. The world’s largest retailer makes
a lot of money in volume at its brick and mortar stores. For eBay to gain
a similar bottom line, they have to scale upwards.Many of our readers
generouslyon our earlier thoughts about the start of the boycott.claimed the
boycott had the desired outcome:I’m technically not in the boycott, because
even if eBay changes the rules, I’m not coming back. I have abandoned the
account and when the 180 mandnatory waiting days have passed, it will
dissappear. That’s $50-$80 per month they’ve lost out on and I wasn’t that
active of a seller. To our boycott delight, many of the sellers that are
leaving eBay are the kilobuck powersellers. THAT is what will hurt eBay the
most.Another commenter:Goodbye boycotters, and good riddance. I’ll enjoy
taking your customers.And yet another commenter suggested the fee increase
would go toward offsetting outgoing CEO Meg Whitman’s ill-fated purchase of
Skype. Zing!We were impressed at the number of people who cited how they
bootstrapped their ecommerce sites after departing eBay, not to mention the
number of suggestions for online auction alternatives. They voted with their
feet and substantial action in response to conditions at eBay they found less
than desirable.Boycotts come and go whenever eBay makes a change. We said
it before and we’ll say it again: eBay saw minimal impact from the latest
one. Faced with another boycott, eBay dropped its listing fees with a one-day
special in advance.Think about that for a second. Boycotters threatened to
deprive eBay of business. EBay responded by giving up fee income on top of
whatever impact the boycott could generate. If that didn’t reinforce the
message of eBay’s shift in strategy, nothing else will.,,Aside from their
attempted take down of Facebook, Google has other ventures to attend to as
well. Whether it’s introducing new Google Doodles that recognize St. Basil’s
Cathedral and beta launches of Google Offer, they also flexed some of their
altruistic muscles with the inaugural Google Science Fair. In fact, the
winners of the science fair have been named, and you can’t help but wonder
if the winners, even if they are currently teenagers, may have Google jobs
waiting on them when their higher education is finished.According to the
Google blog, winners from three age groups have been named, and judging by
the description of the winners, they clearly showed off the scientific talent
in impressive ways. The winners, by age group,:Lauren Hodge in the 13-14 age
group. Lauren studied the effect of different marinades on the level of
potentially harmful carcinogens in grilled chicken.,Naomi Shah in the 15-16
age group. Naomi endeavored to prove that making changes to indoor
environments that improve indoor air quality can reduce people’s reliance
on asthma medications.,Shree Bose in the 17-18 age group. Shree discovered
a way to improve ovarian cancer treatment for patients when they have built
up a resistance to certain chemotherapy drugs.There was also an overall winner
announced, and that designation went to Shree Bose, with her impressive cancer
treatment study. Not only were the winners rewarded for their scientific
talents, their findings can also be implemented by the general public. This
is especially important when dealing with such subjects as cancer and asthma.
Any progress on these fronts, even it is from a younger group than one might
expect, is welcome. The blog entry goes on to say:[The winners]examined
complex problems and found both simple solutions that can be implemented by
the general public—like changing your cooking habits or removing toxins from
your home—as well as more complex solutions that can be addressed in labs
by doctors and researchers, such as Shree’s groundbreaking discovery, which
could have wider implications for cancer research.,Can you imagine the
implications if it was a non-adult who uncovered important information that
affected the way cancer is treated, making these treatments more effective?
A Lego trophy would only be the beginning of the accolades such a person would
receive. As for the prizes the winners received, contributing to the awards
were Google, CERN, LEGO and National Geographic:Shree received a $50,000
scholarship, a trip to the Galapagos Islands with a National Geographic
Explorer and an internship at CERN. Naomi and Lauren each received $25,000
scholarships and internships at Google and LEGO. All three were awarded
lifetime digital subscriptions to Scientific American.,The LEGO internship
sounds about as awesome as being an intern can be; although, there’s no word
if the winners will be able to contribute to the life-sized Lego creations
that pop up on a consistent basis. I mean, what good is a LEGO internship
if you can’t build awesome models? On a more serious side, Google createdfor
their science fair, and while there’s not any video of the winners’
announcement — yet — there’s still some good content to be found there,
especially for those who didn’t take part in this year’s contest, but are
looking forward to participating in next year’s.,,How would you define a media
company? It’s difficult in this day and age, isn’t it? With new media on the
scene, this process is even more of a challenge.Ben Lerer, who is the
co-founder of lifestyle website, explained to us that a traditional media
company creates content and sells brand advertising against that content.
Although the company has evolved from its traditional roots, he still believes
his company is a media company since it has the assets from the traditional
side, a trusted brand, and an opportunity to sell advertising. Thrillist,
however, is taking this model a bit further with the recent introduction of,
a platform that is similar to the popular daily deals offered by companies
like Groupon. So wait, does that mean that Groupon is a media company?Do you
consider companies such as Groupon and LivingSocial media companies or
advertising companies?According to Lerer, Groupon and LivingSocial are media
companies in this new media era. He goes on to say that more traditional media
companies will evolve toward similar models going forward, just as Thrillist
has done. For his site, in particular, he said that moving in this direction
was a ―natural transition.‖In a nutshell, Rewards from Thrillist are
―localized experiences and offers curated specifically to our audience,‖
which is young professional men. For example, a recent Reward was called
―Strip & Strip‖ and included both a lap dance and steak. Other rewards
have included drag racing adventures, all-you-can-eat beef jerky outings,
and more.―It’s less about the fact that you’re getting a great deal, and more
about the fact that we’re packing up or packaging an offer in a way that makes
it feel a lot more like content than a sale,‖ he said. ―We’re making sure
that we’re creating a really great experience where the user feels not just
a loyalty toward the thrills/Rewards, but also toward the establishment.‖One
of the most interesting ideas behind Thrillist’s model is that its Rewards,
a.k.a. deals, are targeted to a specific group of people. While the Groupons
and LivingSocials of the world have created an impressive business model
around deals, Lerer believes that other companies will chip away at this model
and create more targeted services.―I believe that we can provide a certain
kind of person a far better experience than a LivingSocial or a Groupon can,‖
he said. ―I read Groupon and Groupon doesn’t feel like it’s written for me.
It feels like it’s written for every resident of New York City.‖He does think
that the more traditional media companies, such as news brands, will have
a harder time embracing this new approach. They are used to making a clear
distinction between church and state. Nonetheless, let’s not forget that very
traditional news brandThe New York Timesis trying its hand at this model with
the launch of its deals service earlier this year.―There are so many different
ways that brands can go and spend their dollars that if you’re not able to
go and make sure that you’re taking advantage of the relationship that you
have with your consumer… then you may wake up one day and realize that you
don’t have as strong a business as you once thought you did,‖ said Lerer.He
admits that it takes a lot of work but believes that it is the direction of
the future. Social media’s dramatic impact on the media industry will also
likely play a big role in this shift. Ironically, with the exception of
Foursquare, social media has not played as big of a role in Thrillist’s success
as one might expect.Lerer told us that he recognizes its importance and thinks
the company could do more with it, but that the more traditional form of email
marketing has proven to be more effective.―We built Thrillist before social
media existed, and so we’re really good at getting people to forward emails
and to use email as sort of social media versus leveraging the traditional
networks,‖ he said.Do you see traditional media companies adopting this
model? If so, how critical of a role would social media play?,,There’s been
a great deal of talk about Google+ as a Facebook competitor, but how does
Google+ stack up as a Twitter competitor? Some think Twitter should be more
concerned than Facebook.I don’t want to say Google+ will ―kill‖ Twitter. Not
a big fan of those ―this thing will kill this thing‖ proclamations. Even
MySpace still has millions of users. I think ―maim‖ is a more appropriate
word though. Google+ could very well damage Twitter’s momentum.Do you think
Google+ is a threat to Twitter?,.A lot of the Google+ vs. Twitter talk is
happening on Google+ itself. These are people that are actually using the
service, and actively at that. Many of these early adopters, were also early
adopters to Twitter, it’s worth noting.iEntry CEO and WebProNews
publisherrecently made some comparisons ―‖To me it’s like Twitter in Facebook
form on steroids!‖ He also said, ―Google+ looks a lot like Facebook but
actually functions more like Twitter. The key is that on Google+ you follow
and get followed without reciprocation, just like Twitter. IMO Google+ is
competing more for my Twitter time, rather than my Facebook time.‖He also
made a good point about the Circles feature, which could be thought of in
comparison to Twitter lists..if only they were shareable. ―Warming up to
Google+ as a business tool. Viewing the company people work for on mouseovers
is immensely helpful in finding people for circles.‖Influential social media
guy Chris Brogan, ―Agreed. I’m doing what I can to find people for circles
via surfing the interesting folks.‖Other influential social media guy Jason
Falls, ―I’m wondering if content sharing on Google+ will be more efficiently
used than on Twitter. A) I’d be sharing with people who choose to follow me
(similar to Twitter), but the action=content prioritization of G+ would put
that content in front of more people?‖On, we asked, ―What do you like better:
Twitter or Google+?‖We got some interesting responses. One was, ―What do you
like better: cheese or girls?‖ I find a few more similarities between Twitter
and Google+ than between cheese and girls, but interesting comment
nonetheless.One said, ―Too early to tell.‖ Perhaps.Another said, ―Both.‖Some
said Google+. Some said neither. Nobody said Twitter.Of course there are
plenty of takes being expressed on Twitter as well:,Josh HaraFacebook = Star

an article asking, ―‖Steve Rubel of Edelman(via Google+): ―I really think
it is, sorry Twitter.‖In the article, Ingram notes that Rubel is
de-emphasizing Twitter focus in favor of Google+, while Digg founder Kevin
Rose has redirected his blog to his Google+ account ―because there is better
conversation there.‖Vator Newson a BrightEdge study finding that Google’s
+1 buttons are already being adopted more than Twitter’s share and Instant
Follow buttons. Given that they’ve only been around since early June, that’s
pretty impressive.There are some things to take into consideration here. +1
buttons, while present throughout the Google+ experience, are not exactly
the equivalent of a ―share to Google+‖ button. The main draw for publishers
to implement the buttons is the potential of influencing search rankings.
Twitter sharing does play into that in a more indirect way, but Google has
said flat out that +1′s influence rankings. Meanwhile, Google and Twitter
have beenthus far, regarding the use of Twitter’s firehose. It will be very
interesting to see how Google+ impacts search over time – particularly
real-time search, which for some sites can have a pretty significant impact
on pageviews.―Twitter has been available to the public for over 5 years. It
had a much slower start than Google+, but that’s because of the size of Twitter
at the time it launched compared to Google now. Twitter was a small startup
with next to no funding; Google is a multi-billion-dollar internet
behemoth,‖, an unofficial Twitter resource blog. ―However, over the last 5
years, Twitter has gained much media attention and has attracted notable users
from the ranks of the celebrities, sports stars, politicians and other icons
throughout the world.‖―But despite this growth in awareness, Twitter still
hasn’t broken through into the mainstream in terms of actual use,‖ she
adds.She’s writing in response to a Google+ post from Paul Allen of
Ancestry.com, who through some interesting analysis has Google+ pegged at
around 10 million users, and on pace to hit 20 million by the weekend. Grain
of salt encouraged, but you can read more about this.―Now, Twitter touts the
fact that it has well over 200 million (and probably more than 300 million)
registered users, but in terms of active users, like most of the new signups
for Google+ undoubtedly are, the number is likely much less,‖ writes Dugan.
―Think about 10x less… meaning Google+ may have amassed about half of
Twitter’s user base in only two weeks.‖Google+ has come about at an
interesting time in Twitter’s lifecycle. 2011 has been a year of big changes
at Twitter, with the stepping away of co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone
and the return of co-founder Jack Dorsey, who also runs the hot mobile payments
startup Square.Since Dorsey’s return, Twitter has been much more aggressive
in its conquest for increased user interest, engagement, and retention. This
has manifested itself in subtle ways, like design tweaks and ways of
suggesting users, and bigger ways, like the acquisition of TweetDeck and the
announcement of native photo sharing.Twitter has faced a fair amount of
backlash from developers, over its apparent strategy of weeding out some of
the most popular ones by entering the territory on which their respective
businesses are built upon (photos, mobile apps, etc.). Twitter has even
reportedly caught the eye of the FTC over its competitive practices in this
regard ,though in my opinion, all of these developers have already been
playing in Twitter’s territory to begin with. When you rely on a third-party
like this for your entire business, you have to be prepared for this kind
of thing.Facebook app developers know what I’m talking about.saw some
legitimate Facebook apps get shut down without warning because an algorithm
deemed them too spammy. It’s a different scenario, but it drives home the
same point: building businesses that rely on bigger businesses to not only
thrive, but to operate entirely, is a risky game.Of course, Google is no
stranger to government scrutiny of competitive practices. The FTC recently
launched a broad investigation into the company’s business practices, and
that started before the company even announced Google+ which should be seen
as a direct competitor to: Facebook, Twtitter, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon (if this
last one seems a little questionable to you, I’m basing this on the Sparks
feature – a content discovery tool based on the topics you define as your
interests – this is essentially what StumbleUpon is, despite its differences
in execution), etc.So yes, there is a lot of competition here. It’s not likely
that Google+ will hurt the company in the eyes of the government on the
competitive level. It’s got some dragons to slay before it gets to that point
– obviously the 700 million-user dragon controlled by Mark Zuckerberg (who
has a Google+ account).That’s not to say Google will never get to that point.
It’s way too early to tell just how big this is going to get, but early buzz
has been incredibly strong, especially considering the skepticism that
usually accompanies Google’s social efforts. Bill Gross thinks it might be
the, and there are still plenty of people just waiting for their invites.While
there is still a whole lot of room for improvement, Google has done some very
smart things in the way it has integrated Google+ with its other properties.
The navigation bar across Google properties with Google+ notifications in
a bright red box with a number in it will keep people coming back (Lee Odden
of TopRank Online Marketing, ―Sheesh, that little red number is like G+
crack!‖). As will email notifications and the mobile notifications. The
mobile app is also a powerful tool, and one that I believe will be very crucial
in driving the continued success and customer retention of Google+. Instant
upload (for photos) is very convenient and powerful. Right now, Android users
get to use it. Soon, iPhone users will too, and then a whole other large segment
of people will be able to see these benefits and conveniences first-hand.And
that brings us back to Twitter. iOS 5, coming this fall, will have deep Twitter
integration, which will be huge for Twitter. Many people will adopt or simply
use Twitter more frequently as their ID. It will be what they’re using
throughout many of their IPhone (and iPad) apps.However, many people are
already using their Google IDs for a lot of things (especially on Android),
and the beauty of Google+ is that it’s not a new ID. It’s essentially just
new features and integrations built around the ID many people have been using
for years, whether from Gmail, Google Docs, Picasa Web Albums, YouTube, Google
Reader, Google Calendar, etc.While I do believe that Google+ and Facebook
are very much in competition with one another (these companies are in more
than one area, as we’ve discussed numerous times), Twitter is very much a
part of this conversation.Can Twitter survive Google+?,.Follow me on Google+.
