Great Review of 2007
Thursday, January 03, 2008
As I have previously mentioned, were not big on making predictions like so many out there. But one thing that we do like to do is see which predictions were accurate and which ones were not. Jason Lee Miller over at WebProNews had a great post on 28 Things that Didn't Happen in 2007.

Here are a couple of my favorites from Jason's list:
  • Vertical search and niche social networks didn't take off

  • GOOG didn't split or slow down - News flash, Google will most likely never split this stock.

  • SecondLife didn't get a second wind - Second Life was/is overrated. Just ask the countless advertisers who have tried to create their "virtual worlds" there with a lack of success.

  • Widgets didn't falter - as we mentioned in early 2007, widget marketing will continue to become more popular as advertisers see the importance of widgets as marketing and brand awareness tools.

  • AdCenter and Panama didn't catch AdSense - Nobody, contrary to predictions that MSN AdCenter and Yahoo's Panama would gain ground against AdWords and AdSense, really put up a much of a fight against Google.

  • People didn't switch to Windows Live

  • The NYT and the WSJ didn't stay snooty - The New York Times decided content wants to be free and opened up its Times Select articles to the online world. And then, the Wall Street Journal opened up, too. A trend? Seems that way.
