    They deserve to be the number one name on the internet, which they are. The search engine is what makes them, but they have been savvy in expanding their operations with Blogger, YouTube and so on.:)

    Google is a lean, mean searching machine...there's absolutely nothing to complain about the nice simple home page...Yahoo used to be like that once upon a time...ah the glory days of Web 0.9...

    It depends on how much useful you find its various offerings....rather how well you have been able to make use of its services.

    If you have been using it extensively, you may find the hype justified....or else, you may be wondering like millions others...'Why the hell is google being given so much importance!' :eek:

    Apart from their search engine, if you look at the other new additions like google earth, I would say that no, they are not overrated at all.

    - Just like their name - google (googol)

    Or you think they deserve the hype ??
    - Yes, you have to agree since no any site is more popular/ stronger than google

    Oh well it's just not about the search engine..

    Google is just more than that.

    So I did mention this "Google and it's services"

    What is your opinions about various other services of Google ?

    Well, google is definately overvalued: trading at 29x year profit. That's high expectations on a company, especially during a recession.

    How can you say it's overrated. It's only the 1# Search Engine hands down and it a household name all over the world.

    They deserve all the props they can get.

    some search engines have a good look and feel. But at the end credit goes to google which captivates the internet market.

    Yes and no, it dominates the search industry and deserves hype for this and the slew of services it provides but the search results themselves aren't keeping up with the marketers exploiting it.

    They offer the best services. No ads all over, quick servers, clean interfaces, etc. Yahoo is a nightmare to use. Google even lets you use a Google account for tons of different sites. It makes registration so much easier.
