CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 8, 2004--As Google moves toward its anticipated IPO, there are limits to the company's future success. According to a new Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) report, Google's dominance will be diluted as Microsoft and Yahoo! gain strength in the search industry.

"Google has seen tremendous growth, in terms of consumer use and paid search ad revenues. And, although it continues to be the most innovative search company out there," says Forrester Research Principal Analyst, Charlene Li, "Google can't be everything to everyone." form Business Wire

米国 Forrester Research 社によると、今後 Googleページランク アルゴリズムは優位性を持たなくなる。Microsoft は 次世代 WindowsLonghorn に独自のデスクトップサーチを採用し、Yahoo とのポータルバトルが繰り広げられYahoo, MSN などのポータルに利用者を奪われると予測した。

米国 GoogleIPO を控えており、ある意味バブルへの警鐘とも受け取れる。
