Google Is Losing Market Share. Does It Matter?

Publishers such as Pandora (NYSE: P  ) , Twitter, and Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) , are quickly gaining market share in mobile display ads. Is Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) threatened? Fool contributor Daniel Sparks tells Fool.com's Erin Miller in the following video that the development shouldn't negatively affect Google's stock. After explaining why, he tells investors how they should think of this trend and what they should keep an eye on.

However, like many other Web companies, it's also struggling to adapt to an increasingly mobile world. Despite gaining an enviable lead with its Android operating system, the market isn't sold. That's why it's more important than ever to understand each piece of Google's sprawling empire. In The Motley Fool's new premium research report on Google, we break down the risks and potential rewards for Google investors.

    I agree at this moment it does not matter. However as video becomes the global 'content' of the Internet Google & YouTube could no longer be the Giant of search. I see investors picking this trend up soon and early and re-evaluating Google. Also more businesses need VIDEO to increase their ROI & CTR's http://www.infogurushop.com found out why.

    I imagine these mobile display ads are running either on iOS or Android. I don't see how Pandora and others can deliver an ad to a mobile device without Android and iOS. Google has a strong foothold and they are investing in other high tech businesses. I trust Larry Page's nose and I like the direction that Google is headed in.

    To say that the PC will soon be obsolete is grossly misinformed. Software has always outpaced hardware in performance requirements, and the PC is the only feasible personal device that can keep up. Mobile phones, gaming consoles, tablets, and every other device lags far behind any modern PC in performance and resources. As a result, developing for the PC is also a lot easier and faster and thus cheaper for software publishers. The PC isn't going anywhere any time soon. Mobile devices aren't encroaching on PC territory, they're adding to it, filling in the gaps that the PC couldn't reach due to physical limitations. As performance demands forever grow, it cannot by any means replace the PC any time in the foreseeable future.
