It’s starting to happen…The Search Engines are sending gifts to advertisers:-) WooHoo!
1. Google sent me an Ipod Shuffle.
2. Yahoo sent me a fancy corkscrew kit from Leeds.
3. MSN sent me a bottle of wine from wine.com.
I wonder if any of the other Search Engines I use are sending me gifts?
Last year, Google sent a Google Blanket. That was a very practical gift that has seen a lot of use. This year’s Google gift seems just as clever, in that it will most likely get a lot of use, and keeps the Google brand in front of me. Unlike a bottle of wine, or a unbranded corkscrew. I’m certainly not unappreciative. I’m just thinking of the long-lasting effect of the Google gift vs. the other gifts.
