Twenty-one years after its incorporation and 16 years after its stock peak, Yahoo sold for 96% less than its value on January 3, 2000, when it had closed at an all-time high of $118.75 per share, resulting in a market capitalization of $120 billion. Wall Street valued Yahoo!, at that time in business less than six years, higher than it did Disney, News Corporation, and Comcast combined. At the end of 2016, the top seven businesses on the list of the highest-valued companies in the world by market capitalization include Apple at #1, Alphabet (Google´s Parent Company) at #2, Amazon.com at #5, and Facebook at #7. Those companies combined are valued in excess of $2 trillion more than the price Verizon paid to acquire Yahoo! Yahoo!´s story is one of missed strategies, failed opportunities, and poor execution. Early decisions to de-emphasize search features, undervalue Google, and overplay Yahoo´s hand in the Facebook negotiations haunted the rest of the company´s existence. In addition, factors outside of Yahoo´s control - most notably how irrational expectations of Wall Street created an environment where short-term decisions were made at the expense of the long-term good. 1.

Mit seiner weltweit führenden Suchmaschinentechnik, einer Armee von kreativen Köpfen und einer Marktkapitalisierung, die schon eineinhalb Jahre nach dem Börsengang die 100-Milliarden-Dollar-Grenze überschritten hat, kann sich das Unternehmen aussuchen, welchen nächsten Schritt es als nächsten unternimmt... Kaum eine Branche ist vor Google sicher. Dabei galt das Unternehmen lange als Sympathieträger. Sergey Brin und Larry Page lernten sich an der Stanford-Universität kennen: zwei nette Jungs, die eine gute Idee hatten und ein Unternehmen gründeten, dessen Motto auch heute noch ´´Don´t be evil´´ lautet. Schrittweise behandeln die Autoren, wie Google - unter Mithilfe gewiefter Investoren, einer unkonventionellen Unternehmenskultur und der besten Cafeteria von Silicon Valley - einen Erfolg nach dem anderen feierte. Die Google-Story ist die exzellent recherchierte Chronik einer einzigartigen Unternehmensentwicklung. Innerhalb von nur fünf Jahren entwickelte sich die Suchmaschine Google vom kalifornischen Studentenprojekt zum globalen Giganten. Pulitzer-Preisträger David A. Vise hat das erste umfassende Buch über das Weltunternehmen geschrieben. Spätestens seit dem Börsengang im Mai 2004 ist Google ein vielköpfiger Drache, der nicht allein Bill Gates nervös macht. Diese ungekürzte Hörbuch-Fassung wird Ihnen exklusiv von Audible präsentiert und ist ausschließlich im Download erhältlich. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Gerhart Hinze.

Google gives nonprofit organizations $10,000 per month in free advertising through its Google Ad Grants program. And unlike most grants, Google´s has an extremely quick application process and is very easy to get. So why do so few nonprofits participate in Google Ad Grants, and why do existing grantees struggle so much with maximizing its value to grow their organization? What´s the catch? The catch is this: Google Ad Grants is very difficult to administer unless you have extensive knowledge of and expertise with the Google Adwords program. Having $10,000 to spend is easy; actually spending it is, in fact, very difficult. And because Google provides very little support or guidance on how to spend the money, the average nonprofit grantee is only able to use a few hundred dollars of their $10,000 allotment each month. But not anymore. The Google Ad Grants Playbook changes all of that. Josh Barsch and Steve Isaacs of StraightForward Interactive have managed over 100 Google Ad Grants accounts over the past decade for charities worldwide and have cracked the code on how to extract the full value of Google Ad Grants for their clients.
