Google's paid clicks slowed to a growth of just 1.8% in the first quarter. While March's growth was still a year-over-year increase of 2.7%, these numbers are nothing close to the double digit growth that we've seen from Google in the past.
The news was not better for Google's competitors. In March, Yahoo was down 3.1%, Microsoft was down 15.1% and AOL was down by 2.3%.
