Very true, as well as sad.
On the Net, the struggle has become that which involved links; not added
value; not lower prices. People are lazy. With more powerful search engines
and solutions such as auctions and online surveys/comparisons/directories
(e.g. 2020Shops, DealTime, Froogle), people have become complacent and
unwilling to explore. They simply go for what's more shiny on the screen.
And money buys flash.
Boy, I'm just relieved that I am not in this business of SEM...
