AP Examines Growth Directions Of Major Search Engines

An Associated Press article in the New York Times today discussed the development of more niched verticals at the major search engines.

Seems AP sees the retention times of the engines to be declining – with the exception of Google – and that all of them are reaching out to vertical portals and other means of grabbing larger audience share.

It is an interesting read, and a good insight into how other major media see the industry growing. The accuracy of the viewpoint is open to interpretation and I would love to get opinions from readers here.
