Here’s why Google+ Failed? Will it ever be back?

We all know that a social media website named Google+  exists but we never would have used it. The reason we know because it’s a product by Google and we use Google every minute of our life. It’s always there in our chrome browser and in our phones but why we have never used it. Telling about myself, I never opened it and always tried to delete it and I expect many of you would have tried getting rid of it but the question is why, why we don’t want Google Plus.

The basic reason would be we are already surrounded by many social media website but we at some point try a new app or website to figure out what it’s about but what was wrong with Google+, that we never even tried opening it. Let’s find out in this article that what went wrong and even should we consider it as a failure?

Google+ Release Date

Google+ got announced in 2011 by Google still that point Instagram was not that famous and Twitter was just blooming and what it’s being around 8 years but why no one gave a shot to it.

One thing you should know that still it’s running and have not died completely as its business version is still alive. So if you are feeling guilty then you can give it a try and come back but if you don’t feel guilty then continue reading this article.

Google in a statement told that 90 percent of Google+ user sessions ended in seconds.

Yeah, pretty low, isn’t it

So what went wrong?

First of all, I think the reason we don’t want to use Google Plus. We don’t want to use another social media platform because we are here tired of the platforms that are already there in marketing. We are surrounded by Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and many more to name.

Another reason would have been the lack of USP (Unique Selling Point). Google+ was not having anything unique in spite of that everyone having a Gmail account was there already on Google+ but it was having that same post, like and comment mechanism which is there on almost every social media platform on the internet and mainly on Facebook and Instagram. So, why take a headache to post it on another website whereas you can just post it on one website where you have everyone you know already.

One of the main reasons that it never got traction between normal people was that it was never meant for the people like us instead it was built for the companies. It was more company friendly than user friendly. Many Google employees, felt it and stated that it was designed to solve the company’s own problems instead of aiming at making it easy for users to connect to one another. Google+ was interconnected with other Google’s services such as Youtube and others but it failed to connect with other users as it was a very typical process.

Why did it fail?

The last reason that completes my argument is there’s a lack of a good mobile platform. First it didn’t have a mobile application only when it’s other counterparts were working on updating the already settled mobile application and later when it arrived it was too clunky to use. Experts, say it was more of a afterthought than clearly planned service.

So, what do you think about Google+?

It was a failure or not.

What are Different Income Streams for Google?

Google is the most valuable company in the world. It has even gone ahead to Apple which was the largest revenue-generating company in the world. Have you ever wondered where Google generates such huge revenue as the core product that it owns is the search engine and it is free to everyone?

Let’s give you an insight into Google revenue according to its 2015 annual report.

In 2015 Google generated $75 billion revenue and around 92% of it was generated through advertisement.

The money came from the USA ($34.8 billion), the UK ($7.1 billion), and the rest of the world ($33.1 billion).

The revenue generated is more than most of the companies in the world.

Google earns through advertisement the most and it serves as the root of the company to stand as powerful as it is today.

Google Advertising Revenue.

 Have you ever noticed and paid attention to the result that you get from Google when you search for a particular product or service related page. If you have paid attention to the results you must have seen that the first two or three results are marked with a green color Ad written box.

Do y’all know the reason behind that?

Let me tell you that indicates that those results are advertisements on Google that those products are running.

Advertisers bid to get their product on top of the advertisement on a relevant keyword or search query. The ranking of their advertisement depends upon the bidding as well as the quality and the relevancy of the query to the page. To encourage more advertisers to be a part of this race, Google conducts an auction to decide whose page will rank first for the advertisement.

As mentioned above they are judged on the basis of quality and bidding.

Bidders here won’t know the highest bid or their competent bid. When all the bids are in, the one who wins pays the price of the second-highest bid.

Google with the bidding takes the account of Quality score. That is the relevancy of the page to the query. The more close and specific it is the more quality score it will receive.  So hence a generic page including the query will get less score than a specific page just made for that particular query.

Google Ads Revenue

Cost per click.

We willingly or unknowingly sometimes just click on any page and move back out of it soon. But do you all know that one click to such Ad marked pages cost them per click a certain amount of money?

Through the cost per click system, the advertiser has to pay each time a person visits the advertiser’s page. Advertiser finds this way of advertising helpful as the users has themselves shown interest in the product by searching for it and hence they will more likely buy it.

All this works through Google Adword which was released in 2000. It is the primary source of income for Google.

Besides this Google also earn through advertising even if you are not on the website at that time. It Adsense network places and also allows different kinds of advertisements on a particular site that is relevant for the advertiser.

This all contributes to the major chunk of the revenue that it generates.

Now you all know how Google is able to provide us the search engine for free to use, as indirectly that search engine contributes to the revenue that it generates using the data provided there.
