One reason is just look at how big Google is compared to everyone else. I regularly read about how Google is becoming less relevant and Web 2.0 sites such as Facebook and Twitter are growing by leaps and bounds. I think it just goes to show that people still use the Internet to find information. And Google still has the market on that. It also makes me happy because my Google-centric entrepreneurial search is still a strong way to proceed.
The other thing this made me think is to marvel at how little of the internet I actually look at. These are just 300,000 sites out of probably billions or trillions at this point. The websites that I look at might be completely different from my coworker’s oft visited sites which might be completely different from my father’s. I think it just shows that there is always room for more because everyone is different and has different interests. So even if there are a million other sites that are selling what I am going to sell, they might not be selling it the right way for my target audience. Maybe I could create a whole new audience with my site. There are just so many possibilities.
