  • Suddenly, Google Looks Shaky (GOOG)

    Larry Page not bad

    Last week, Google reported slower-than-expected revenue growth during the third quarter.

    Investors punished the company with a stock sell-off, and now Google shares are trading at $511.17, well below a 52-week high of $604.83.

    In a story on the disappointing earnings, BI's Jillian D'Onfro pinpointed Google's problem: its big business, search advertising, isn't growing as fast as it used to. In fact, it hasn't grown so slowly since six years ago.

    To be very specific: People didn't click on Google search ads as much as everyone thought they would during the quarter.

    "Growth in paid clicks didn't accelerate as much as analysts expected it to: 17% year-over-year versus expectations of 22% year-over-year," wrote D'Onfro.

    Here are three reasons that's happening.

    Reason #1: Google search is the best money-making business on the Web, but the Web is slowly becoming irrelevant thanks to mobile.

    Here are two charts that illustrate this point. We first saw them in a post by Andreessen Horowitz partner Chris Dixon. 

    The first chart shows what you already know, that mobile users surpassed desktop users this year:

    desktop versus mobile users in 2014

    The second chart shows that, increasingly, mobile users prefer to connect to the internet via apps rather than the mobile web.

    Apps Mobile Web Flurry

    Looking at those two charts, we can perhaps infer the following: The world is moving away from desktop computers. As the world does this, Web usage is growing more slowly. As overall Web growth slows, Google Search growth slows — and so do clicks on search ads.

    Reason #2: People are more comfortable going straight to Amazon to search for products to buy. 

    A couple years ago, we met with several Google executives and learned that the company keeping them up at night wasn't Facebook and it wasn't Microsoft; it was Amazon.

    Google is a search company, but the searches that it actually makes money from are the searches people do before they are about to buy something online. These commercial searches make up about 20 percent of total Google searches. Those searches are where the ads are.

    What Googlers worry about in private is a growing trend among consumers to skip Google altogether, and to just go ahead and search for the product they would like to buy on Amazon.com, or, on mobile in an Amazon app.

    There's data to prove this trend is real. According to ComScore, Amazon search queries were up 73% in 2012. But it makes intuitive sense doesn't it?

    Why go through these steps …

    • Open a Web browser on your phone.
    • Google search "bike gloves"
    • Analyze some text links.
    • Click on one to go to a product page on some e-commerce store.
    • Click to add the item to your cart.
    • Input your credit card.
    • Input your address.
    • Select what kind of shipping you would like to pay for.

    … when you can just …

    • Open the Amazon app on your phone.
    • Search Amazon for "bike gloves."
    • Click one button to buy the product with your usual credit card and have it shipped to your normal address, for free.

    Reason #3: Google is way behind in the best money-making business on mobile, monetizing streams.

    Facebook generated $1.8 billion in mobile ad revenues during the second quarter, 151% over the same period the year prior. Twitter generated $255 million in mobile revenues during the quarter.

    Both Twitter and Facebook are, mostly, making all the money by selling ads against "streams" in their mobile apps.

    Google also sells mobile ads.

    But it doesn't own a stream to sell ads against.

    Meanwhile, Facebook and Twitter keep adding more streams to sell ads against.

    Facebook bought Instagram and WhatsApp. Twitter bought Vine.

    Facebook and Twitter are also both taking what they've learned about putting ads their own streams to help other app makers sell ads (and taking a cut, of course).

    It's reminiscent of how Google made a bunch of money selling ads against its own content — search results — and then and then it took those ad-selling techniques and spread them all over the Web, to great profit.

    Maybe Google's growth is slowing because it's not doing the same thing in mobile, while Facebook and Twitter are.

    BONUS REASON: Larry Page is investing for the distant future, not the near term.

    In the past couple of years, Google CEO Larry Page has invested billions of dollars in self-driving cars, thermostats, robots, and computers for your face. None of those investments have turned into real businesses yet. Maybe they will someday.

  • Brilliant Management Advice From Google's Former CEO On How To Build A $300 Billion Company (GOOG)

    Google Chairman Eric Schmidt

    To be successful in the technology-driven internet age, a company has to attract "smart creative" employees and then create an environment where they can thrive. 

    At least that's the argument that Google's Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg make in "How Google Works."

    In the new book, executive chairman and former CEO Schmidt and former SVP of product Rosenberg outline what they learned while building Google into a company now worth hundreds of billions of dollars

    The duo created a fun, illustrated presentation to highlight the main principles of the book.

  • These Time-Lapse Maps That Show How Much The World Has Changed In The Last 30 Years Are Completely Jarring

    Google Earth Engine

    Computer scientist Rebecca Moore and her team at Google created Google Earth Engine to enable global-scale data-mining

    Earth Engine brings together trillions of scientific measurements dating back over 40 years, and Google gives researchers, scientists, and nations the tools to analyze this data to detect changes and trends. 

    Using Landsat satellite imagery from 1984 to 2012, the team was able to create half a dozen incredible time-lapse maps that show areas of particularly dynamic change.

    The result is jarring.

     "You can see the human impact on the landscape," Moore told Business Insider. "You can see urban development, deforestation, agricultural creation. You can see impacts of climate change."

  • Google's Former CEO Reveals The Complicated Search Question He Wants Google To Be Able To Answer

    Eric Schmidt using motorola moto x smartphoneGoogle's former CEO and current executive chairman Eric Schmidt thinks that the company is "nowhere near close" to solving the problem of search. 

    In a recent speech in Berlin, Schmidt talks about how the process of invention is never-ending, and how the best inventors never feel like their work is done. For example, he says, even though Google.com is massively popular, the company hasn't "solved" search yet, and it still works incredibly hard to push its product forward.

    He highlights one search that he wants Google to eventually be able to solve.

    "Try a query like 'show me flights under €300 for places where it’s hot in December and I can snorkel,'" Schmidt says. "That’s kind of complicated: Google needs to know about flights under €300; hot destinations in winter; and what places are near the water, with cool fish to see. That’s basically three separate searches that have to be cross-referenced to get to the right answer. Sadly, we can’t solve that for you today. But we’re working on it."

    Although this example is interesting in that it demonstrates some of Google's ambitions, the ultimate point Schmidt is trying to make here is that Google wants to be able to provide users with the most direct answers to any question they may ask. The EU is investigating Google because other companies have complained that the search engine favors its own results, and Schmidt argues that it's because Google just wants to be as direct as possible and save users from having to click around.  

    "Put simply, we created search for users, not websites," he says. "And that’s the motivation behind all our improvements over the last decade."

  • Google's New TV Streaming Device Gets Pulled From The Play Store Because It Wasn't Approved By The FCC

    Google's latest bid to take over your living room — its new Nexus Player — is no longer available for pre-order because it hasn't yet been approved by the FCC. 

    Nexus Player

    Android Police spotted that message buried at the bottom of Nexus Player product page after it was suddenly listed as "out of inventory." (The page just says "Coming soon," now.)

    The FCC needs to authorize any electronic device that uses the radio spectrum for things like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, which the Nexus Player does. 

    "Hopefully, this is just an issue of timing, and not a legitimate issue with the Nexus Player," Gizmodo's Chris Mills writes of the Player's removal from the Google Play Store.

  • While Tim Cook Is Gushing About Apple Pay, Here's What's Going On With Google Wallet

    Google Wallet

    At Apple's iPad event this week, CEO Tim Cook spent a chunk of the presentation talking about Apple Pay, its new mobile payments system that officially launches on Monday, October 20. Cook gushed about Apple Pay's partners — most major banks —  and the more than 220,000 stores which will accept the service. The effect of Apple Pay, he said, will be "profound."

    Google, which introduced its own NFC-enabled payments system through Google Wallet way back in 2011, was much less blustery on its recent earnings call when asked about Google Wallet.

    "We are trying to get it right," Google's sales boss Omid Kordestani said in response to one analyst's question about Google Wallet. 

    Since launch, the service hasn't really taken off. However, with Apple Pay's hyped-up rollout right around the corner, Google Wallet will likely also see an uptick in usage as more stores install the NFC-enabled terminals needed to accept either "tap-to-pay" mobile wallet.

    Kordestani insinuated as much on the call when an analyst asked him about Wallet's user adoption so far:

    "I think our goal here is really achieving mass merchant adoption, so the availability of these NFC devices is about that," he says, "And also making it easier for consumers to replace their wallets with their smartphones, hopefully more and more over time. So, reducing friction in everyday shopping experiences is how we approach [Wallet] and the focus on the user. We're really developing a fully functional payment system."

    Kordestani also highlighted a few of Wallet's other applications, besides in-store usage, like letting users send money to each other through Gmail or the "Buy With Google," button that the company makes available for apps and websites.

    Apple will use payments startups Stripe and Braintree to power the apps that want to integrate Apple Pay into their check-outs, and one analyst asked Kordestani whether Google would consider using a third-party for Android.

    "I think we're going to continue to be open here," he responded. "So we are trying to get it right and innovating on multiple fronts, as I mentioned earlier. And if partnering makes sense, we'll take a look at it, as well."

    One notable difference between how Apple Pay and Google Wallet work is that Apple won't have any access to what users bought or how much they paid. Google, on the other hand, "sees" every transaction that a user makes.  

    Whether Apple Pay be able to succeed better than Google Wallet, or whether, despite Cook's enthusiasm, it won't be able to crack the mobile payments code either remains to be seen, but we're sure to see the payments buzz only increase over the next few months.

  • How A 'Small But Mighty' Team Of Googlers Is Using Maps To Save People And The Planet (GOOG)

    Google Earth Outreach

    It's 2008 and five Google employees are in the Brazilian rainforest. 

    They're standing still as members of the Surui tribe delicately paint elaborate patterns of deep blue dots and lines on their arms, backs, and torsos. 

    The Surui made the ink from a native fruit called the jenipapo and it won't fade for nearly a month — though they warn the Googlers it will last longer if they're jealous people.

    The ceremony takes place in Lapetanha, a village in the Amazon rainforest, and home of an indigenous people who didn't have their first contact with outsiders until 1969. 

    The Googlers are there as part of Google Earth Outreach, a team that helps nonprofits and other organizations and communities use Google Earth and Maps tools to attack major environmental and social problems. The Surui used the paint and other rituals to welcome the Goolgers into their village before receiving several days of training on how to use a computer and Google Earth. The people had watched their land get destroyed by the logging and mining industry, and they wanted to learn how to use Google Maps to help. 

    Google Earth Outreach

    The partnership between Google and the Surui began after the tribe's chief first discovered Google Earth in an internet cafe and believed that the tool could somehow be used to help his tribe survive. That was only the beginning of an amazing partnership between Google and the Surui tribe that still remains active to this day. 

    Over the last six years, Google Earth Outreach and Google Earth Engine — two initiatives founded and led by a computer scientist named Rebecca Moore — have helped the Surui create cultural maps and record instances of illegal logging on their land. Through Google Earth Engine, they built a real-time alerting system that will notify the tribe whenever suspicious images show up on Google Earth. They can then go investigate and take photos and videos to upload to Google Earth and use to provide as evidence to law enforcement. 

    It's not just the Surui in Brazil. Google is working with organizations around the world to map out their land and keep track of how things are changing. 

    "I really believe that when people have the information, when everyone in society is empowered with this information, people will make better decisions," Moore tells us. "I think we can change how we live on this planet. I really believe we can." 

    To get a better idea of the scope of deforestation in the Amazon, check out this Earth Engine map showing how the area has changed between 1984 through 2012. The dark green stuff that is disappearing here represents a loss of trees.

    Google Earth Engine Gif The partnership with the the Surui is but one of many that have come from the team of slightly more than two dozen Googlers working on Google Earth Outreach and Google Earth Engine. 

    Moore started Outreach in 2005 as a 20% project. She had just started working for Google Earth and had used the then-fledgling product, created through Google's acquisition of a digital mapping startup called Keyhole, to stop a timber harvesting plan in her Santa Cruz home. After receiving a nearly indecipherable public notice about the plan in the mail, she mapped its specifications on Google Earth, and was able to clearly show other community members and policy makers all the ways the plan would negatively affect their Redwood-laden area. Her presentations galvanized the community against the plan and she actually ended up proving it was illegal.

    In 2007, the Mercury News wrote of Moore and her efforts"While other logging battles feature environmentalists sitting in trees, this one featured Silicon Valley computer programmers sitting at their monitors, studying every acre of the plan."

    Rebecca Moore

    Moore decided to spend her 20% time as a liaison to the environmental community. She started getting requests for guidance from organizations like Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Save the Elephants, and others that wanted to learn how to use Google Earth to tell their own stories and empower their causes.

    Eventually, demand for help swelled enough that leading Outreach became her full-time position. Google Earth Engine was born out of Google Earth Outreach. Google Earth Engine is a digital model of the planet that gets updated with new satellite data — including datasets for elevation, temperature, and weather feeds —daily. It brings together trillions of scientific measurements dating back over 40 years and Google gives researchers, scientists, and nations the tools to access, sort, use, and learn from it. It's global-scale data mining. 

    Earth Outreach

    Together, Earth Outreach and Earth Engine help Google's overall mission of "organizing the world's information," both figuratively and literally. 

    "I like to think of it as turning pixels into knowledge," Moore told us. "It’s not about the pixels. It’s about the information you can extract, about what’s happening somewhere or what’s changing, and then put that information in the hands of decision makers."

    Moore and her team have taught the HALO Trust, an NGO for removing landmines, how to use Google Earth Pro for minefield study, data validation, and to produce high-quality maps. Outreach also partnered with the Environmental Defense Fund on a pilot project to measure air pollution in U.S. cities. They join forces with Google's Crisis Response team to create comprehensive disaster relief maps during emergencies, like Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines. Researchers at UCSF have started using Google Earth Engine to create an online database that countries can use to determine areas at particularly high-risk for a malaria outbreak. Earth Engine powers Global Forest Watch, a dynamic online forest monitoring and alert system that has swelled into a sustainability-conscious revolution convincing major corporations like General Milles, Hershey's, Kellogg's, and Procter & Gamble, to adopt deforestation-free commitments.

    On a smaller scale, Google Earth Outreach creates tools for individuals to learn how to use Google Earth to plan beach cleanups or create narrated tours of treasured areas. 

    "It’s all about lowering the barriers to people using our mapping tools to make the world a better place," Moore says. 

    Earth OutreachWhile it all sounds grandiose, Moore's day-to-day job doesn't feel so revolutionary.

    In her brightly-lit Mountain View office, which has several maps tacked onto the walls, she spends a lot of time simply talking to partners — scientific organization, government officials, nonprofits, business leaders. She's also brainstorming ways to better work with classrooms, to give them resources for increasing geo-literacy and perhaps inspiring the next generation of tree-huggers. 

    In this way, Moore and her "small but mighty" team are perhaps not on the frontlines of the enormous environmental or humanitarian fights, but slightly behind them, pushing people forward, nudging them towards the right tools. 

    "We're not the scientists. We're not the teachers. We're not the policy makers. We're not the people on the ground enforcing the law," Moore says."But by putting us together, we understand what the other is trying to accomplish. Finding that synergy of skills that we can each offer each other leads to the amazing progress that is starting to be made."

  • That Time When Google's Extra Password Security Locked Me Out Of My Gmail

    Gmail lock out

    Another week, another story of hackers stealing millions of passwords.

    But sometimes it's the things you do to protect yourself that can foul you up.

    I was recently traveling on a business trip, holed up in a location that didn't have cell reception.

    I plugged my computer into the available Ethernet network. Not usually a problem. Google, trying to protect me, noticed I was on a new network and locked me out of my email, calendar, and contacts. It wanted me to type in a special code to verify my password.

    A common recommendation to keep your password safe from hackers is to use what's known as two-factor authentication. The website will send you a one-time code to use with your regular login. Companies using Google can even make this a mandatory security setting for all employees.

    It's a great idea, unless you have no backup plan for when it goes wrong.

    When I turned on two-factor authentication, I chose the easiest options: to have Google text my special code to my mobile and to use my husband's phone as my backup.

    When I tried to access my Gmail that day, I had no cell reception and couldn't get a text. And I couldn't call my husband and get him to text me a code sent to him.

    To its credit, Google has thought of these problems (unknown to me at the time; I had been using two-step for more than a year without any problems).

    It offers the Google Authenticator app that generates the codes on your phone. It works even when the phone is in airplane mode.

    Gmail two-step passwords 1

    But, the app won't help you if you lose your phone.

    Google has a solution for that, too. You can use preapproved codes as long as you download them in advance. (A step that I didn't do.)

    Gmail two-step passwords 2

    Google also warns people not use a Google Voice number with two-step verification, or you could lock yourself out completely. Google will be asking for a code that is shut away in your Google voice account.

    Next time I travel, I'll be ready.

  • The BBC Is Going To Maintain A List Of 'Right To Be Forgotten' Links From Google

    BBCThe BBC announced Friday it would maintain a continually updated list of its articles that Google is forced to remove from its search results under a European court's "right to be forgotten" rule.

    Editorial policy head David Jordan said in a public meeting that greater care should be given to the public's "right to remember."

    It's a bit of an ironic twist, although the list would not include personal information, or republish the full content or articles, the BBC says. But that doesn't mean the articles would be gone. As with Google's search results — which link to content published on the web — if users can find a website (or article) by other means, they are free to do so.

    The European Court of Justice ruled in May that people should have the "right to be forgotten," allowing them to remove items they might not want showing up in search results for their name. The ruling was a huge loss for Google, as one law professor told Business Insider at the time, it was a potential "nightmare of epic proportions" for the company.

    In early October, Google updated its statistics with how many links it had removed since the ruling. The company had received 144,954 requests and denied more than half of them.

  • Google Is Signing Up More Than 1,800 Customers Per Week For Its Microsoft Office Killer (GOOG, MSFT)

    Google IO + Sundar Drive

    Google executives gave an update on how well their attack on one of Microsoft's most important businesses is going:

    Pretty well.

    Google executives say the company is getting over 1,800 signups per week for its $10 per user/per month Google Drive for Work cloud service.

    This service gives users unlimited cloud storage, email, and access to what used to be called Google Docs, its alternative apps to Microsoft Office, i.e. a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation software, etc.

    Google's chief business officer, Omid Kordestani, explained:

    Finally, we’re seeing remarkable momentum in our newer non-ads businesses, whether it’s Play, Hardware or Google For Work, we continue to see strong growth and we’re thrilled to be a platform for our partners' successes as well.

    For businesses, what was called Google Enterprise, is now simply Google for Work. This business has great traction. In addition to the tremendous growth in our [Google Play] apps business, we have more than 1,800 signups for Google Drive for Work every week. Plus there are almost 250 million active Google Drive users, including consumer, education and business users.

    That's not to say that these people have completely ditched Microsoft Office.

    When Google first announced this new pricing, it also admitted that many of the documents that people store in Google Drive are actually Microsoft Office documents.

    But it's working on that. Google acquired a startup that made an app called Quickoffice back in 2012. Quickoffice lets you work on Office documents on iPads and Android devices.

    When Google launched the new Drive for Work in June, it baked Quickoffice into the service so that people could create Office-compatible documents, or edit them, right from Drive on their Android or Chrome devices.

    Meanwhile, Microsoft says its Google Drive killer, the cloud version of Office known as Office 365, is doing well, too. In July, it said it had 5.6 million users of its two consumer versions, Home and Personal.

    It didn't release numbers for its business users, but Microsoft is set to announce earnings next week, and we expect to hear an update then.
