Alibaba to transform China's 'e-conomy' with $500 billion marketplace
By Paul Carsten
The more I read about Alibaba, the more I think they have tremendous potential to grow.
And the less I really like Marissa.
Every time yahoo makes a change, the new product is inferior and buggy.
So that means out of all of yahoo's searches, 31% of them come from Mobile. Which is silly to compare with Google. Google gets, out of all its searches, 30% of them from mobile.
Yahoo has alot less searches then google.
Yahoo now sees 31% of its searches on mobile devices, slightly outpacing Google at 30%. Estimates include hidden Apple iOS visits related to the company's clients.
The Rimm-Kaufman Group Q3 Digital Marketing Report analyzes paid search, organic search and social, comparison shopping engines and attribution associated with RKG clients.
Organic searches continue to become more interesting for marketers as Google has built barriers preventing marketers from seeing search query keyword data. Missing or not, provided search query share rose at the end of Q3 to reach 80%, as Google pushed consumers toward secure searches -- regardless of their browser or log-in status.
Bing's share of organic search visits rose to 10.5% in Q3, up from 10.1% sequentially. Yahoo's share slipped slightly to 9.1%, while Google's rose a bit to 78.1%.
Smartphones and tablets now account for 28% of organic search visits, led by the iPad at 10%. Overall, iOS devices generated 19% of organic search visits in Q3. Android accounted for 8%, and other mobile devices 1%, per the RKG report.
Apple iOS 6 continues to lead, with 11% of Google organic searches being wrongly attributed by Web analytics in Q3 despite an increase in the Web traffic identified properly. The report notes that iOS 7 does not appear to suffer from the same problem. iOS devices accounted for an estimated 19% of organic search visits in Q3.
The Internet Advertising Bureau released mobile numbers Wednesday estimating mobile ad revenue at $3 billion in the first half of 2013, up 145% from $1.2 billion in the year-ago period. Search revenue in the first half of 2013 reached $8.7 billion -- up 7% from $8.1 billion in the first half of 2012, per the IAB.
Social also continues to make an impact. In Q3, a bit more than 0.8% of mobile site visits were generated by social sites. Overall, Facebook's share of social referrals to Web sites came in at 52% in Q3, while Pinterest accounted for 14% and Google+ generating about 1% of social
I really don't care if people vote me up or down. The fact is, he has more listeners than any other channel on Sirius. New programming does not equal listeners. Guaranteed about 3 million people cancel their subscription when he leaves.
Don't judge Stern by whether you like him or not. Judge him by his numbers. And he's a juggernaut
As a longtime fan of Howard, he's been horrible since he signed this latest contract. He sounds like he's coasting. And he's on 2 to 3 days a week with the rest repeats.
That said, he's probably still the most listened to station by far on Sirius despite all of the grumbling of fans.
You'd probably lose around 3 million subscribers if he left.
If you click on Coldone's profile and do a search at the beginning of his first msgs, he predicts Yahoo will be sold....this was back in 2011.
How about putting me in the wickerman?
Nope. I had 10k to put on one stock and thought that Yahoo is really the only company that can compete against Google in search. With the new ceo getting hype, I did some research and read on Seeking Alpha about their interest in Alibaba and Yahoo Japan.
More digging and reading the annual report made me realize for all the criticism of the last 5 ceos, one thing they all did well is pay down debt until it was zero.
Marissa was handed a golden egg.
The stock would have gone up if I was the ceo.
Its possible that Marissa has positioned Yahoo to do very well in mobile ads, but we'll have to wait and see.
Coldone has the same goal as me (wishing stock goes up) so no beef with him.
Weird is a good word for it. If you had enough money to move a stock, would you post in the Yahoo msg boards?
I bought at $19 and I like that the stock has been going up.
But the cult around the Coldone is amusing.......I have no complaints.....I may join up.
Anyone want to fill me in and what he has done to deserve this following?
Co1done: Post Alibaba IPO, Alibaba will need to grow.
They have a payment system similar to Paypal called Alipay which could possible make a dent in the credit payment markets.
Currently Alipay handles 45% of all online transactions in China.
I'd have to read the annual report before making any decisions, but any company that big could make a dent in the USA market.
Its a big company but only in China. How tough would it be to replicate their strategy here in the USA? IMO, the big usually get bigger
