And on the basis of that, incumbent companies may change their strategies on part of their product development, marketing, keywords listings etc. So, my point is that, copy the search link and paste it to the brouser. This might not be tracked to the analytics and could be counted as the direct viewership. A lenghty process indeed. However I am not sure whether the process works or not.
The above process is for the potential competitors. Then what for the incumbents?
Change the strategies on a regular basis, of course checking the log file. And going on to develop the newer products. Never give a chance to the potential conpetitors to get into your views. Things should be done so quickly and frequently that it will take a span of time to understand. And in the mean time, you will arrive with another product.

What is the Catch: The search become more and more personal and local now-a-days and the search engines are not far from that in developing the algorithm. I had mentioned this issue in my earlier posts. Google will definitely use this feature of local search, language diversification and behavior in their mobile technology. One news has already came that Google is launching Mobile phone . Hats off to the Google strategy.
