While the success of opportunities appeared to have come to a screeching halt, several entities still continue to make the best of the situation. Today, names such as EBay and Amazon are commonplace in almost every household with a computer and internet connection. But, perhaps even more surprisingly, the name Google has become more than just a silly word with a meaning most people do not know. It represents a story of unbelievable success in a market that did not take kindly to small competitors. Google Inc. is now a major public corporation in the United States, but going back to its inception, growth, and success, we witness a truly compelling story.
Again, Microsoft was too slow to respond, and while Live Mail and Bing are now respectable products, upgrades were so long in coming that Microsoft will have to heavily invest both time and money to win back a skeptical audience. In fact, Microsoft has recently started a points program that rewards users with points redeemable for prizes if they use Bing search with an installed toolbar. Finally, Microsoft waited too long to update its web browser to be competitive with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

I then utilized the... ... middle of paper ... ...he material was becoming redundant but there were a few new articles of interest but were coming from the same sites I had previosly made notes to reveiw those sites in depth. When I first began this process I theorized that Google would be the best search option and the most reliable. I still contend that this is a good search option but not completely convinced it is the best. I was able to access more non fee sites with Yahoo as well as resarch material that was of primarty and secondary sources. Therefore I have decided to complete my search engine evaluation on Yahoo.
For the past decade, two such “pedias” have been argued about their accuracy, reliability, and facilitation. Even though it contains error by allowing common people to edit it, Wikipedia is a more helpful and comprehensible source of information than the intricacy and difficulty created by the Encyclopedia Britannica. Despite their earlier claims and assertions, scientists and modern commenters are now withdrawing most of their accusations. Not only are they realizing that Wikipedia’s articles and information are void of numerous errors but also are witnessing the rapidly increasing use of Wikipedia, compared to that of the Encyclopedia Britannica. One such columnist, Cecil Adams, recently withdrew his accusation of Wikipedia: “Quit with the Wikipedia because from the standpoint of reliability, Wikipedia might as well be written by gorillas”(Adams).
However Yahoo was only one of the few companies to turn online marketing profitable and helped paved the way for other companies. Shortly after Yahoo’s success in online marketing many other companies such as HotBot, LookSmart and MSN joined the bandwagon. The birth of Google however has gone down in history as being a particularly pivotal moment in the history of search engines and digital marketing especially. In the twenty-first century, Marketing has been simply grouped into two sections, The Inbound Marketer and The Outbound Marketer. Inbound Marketers embrace the use of technology.
Additionally I will be painfully honest at times and do not want to insult or hurt anyone’s feelings. It seems obvious, even foolish, to mention this but the first thing you need is a viable project to outsource, in my case it was the programming for a fairly complicated website.

What was most frustrating, was until we realized this they simply skipped or ignored our detailed explanations, often if there was an important detail in the second sentence it would frequently be missed. Overall I enjoyed the experience and learned more then I could have imagined.
Originally I choose this because it was just something that sounded interesting that I had not gotten around to reading about on wikipedia. Also it seem like it would be useful to know about. I was a disappointed that Anonymous was not as ethical as I thought it was but I learned some very interesting things. I learned about how many different types of people where on the internet. Most importantly I learned a lot more about internet safety.
Internet Research and Internet Plagiarism As wonderful as it is, the Internet is not the be-all and end-all of your research. A college-level term paper that uses only the Internet for information will probably not cover its subject adequately, and thus will not receive a high grade. There are several reasons for this. For one, the Internet tends to cover subjects more superficially than the printed literature, without the depth and context provided by a book. Most Internet sources also lack explicit citations to other sources for reference; such citation is an important part of articles found in professional journals and is one of the ways in which scholarly accountability is maintained.
The article “Lifting the Veil: Improving Accountability and social Transparency in Wikipedia with WikiDashboard” discusses the issue Wikipedia faces with quality and accountability while proposing a potential solution. The main focus of the article is the WikiDashboard application that the authors created, however the reason this application is created is to address the transparency issue with Wikipedia. “Despite their tremendous success, collaborative models of knowledge building are still viewed with skepticism. The quality, accountability, and trustworthyness of the articles in Wikipedia has been debated heavily in the press” (Bongwon 1037). This distrust is the result of the disconnect of awareness between the Wikipedia readers and the Wikipedia writers, who of course can be the same individuals but in many cases are not.
