Google's Real Initiative

Two threads brought on this post, one from WebmasterWorld named Google Gmail Advertising and the other from SearchEngineWatch Forums named Gmail is a hot seller in eBay!.

What is Google's plan with all their free and awesome products? Let me list out the products: - Search - Toolbar - Gmail - Orkut - Google API - AdSense & AdWords - Personalization - etc.

As I posted at SEW Forums, its clear that they do not want to sell product to the end users. They want to make their money selling ads, technology and the like to partners. As Aaron pointed out in that thread "they are all about automation. paid email & customer issues would not support their automated ideas." So what is their plan?

Lets move over to the WebmasterWorld thread and look at msg number 5, "Thats an awful lot of information for one company to be able to gather about you. Especially if you are one of the people "trying to stay under the radar"."

Google has taken major strides in collecting information about its user. What will they do with this information? Build the ultimate search engine? Or maybe, build the ultimate contextual search advertising solution? Also, what is next? gIM service?
