  1. now all they have to worry about is how much hand shaking gets done with the buyer…

  2. I am not surprised because I agreed with your predictions when you made it.

  3. I’m not familiar with the dynamics of it, but why sell it if there is a conflict of interest? Why not just bury it and leverage the assets

  4. dude can you stay some what on topic, and stop stroking your ego so much, it gets old. great post with fighters (humble) than this crap. No wonder the wickedfire people can’t stand you.

  5. What , are you like a genius or something? I just got the email an hour ago.

  6. Shoe, insiders at Google & Performics have been talking about the high likelyhood of a selloff of that division ever since Google announced they were buying Doubleclick…

  7. I never knew he made predictions. MAybe I didn’t read it lol. However it is awesome when predictions come true. 🙂

  8. Great prediction!.Would u predict some more things to happen this week or near by.

    1. Hello, its pleasant article about media print, we all know media
      is a great source of facts.

  9. I imagine as a search company they don’t want anything to do with the SEO industry. Well outside of Matt Cutts blog anyway. Selling severs the link, burying doesn’t.

  10. There are much wrong when search engine company occupy oneself with search marketing, therefore such step looks pretty right.

  11. Good call Shoe…that’s why i keep coming back.. to get the news before it happens.

  12. Social Networking with Twitter and Facebook for Getting Things Done | Did I Get Things Done? - Getting Things Done GTD with Personal Development and Motivation for Success says:

    […] I used Twitter when it first came out and didn’t really get it. I read other blogs such as Shoemoney and John Chow and I see that they are all getting back into Twitter so I thought I would try it […]

  13. Why don’t you post pictures of your checks anymore..I noticed nextpimp.com is dropping big time on alexa, what are you doing these days to be a super affiliate?

  14. great prediction shoestradamus!
    it means you know the industry well, or you do have genuine fortune telling abilities! lol

  15. I see. So basically the business itself – even though they don’t want a part in it. Has a conceived value higher than the sum of its assets… correct?

  16. decision of buying DoubleClick has already created lots of discussion…. looks like wrong deal in Google acquisition history 😉

  17. Google says everything you need to know about SEO can be read in their faqs and help files so just get rid of this parasite-division.

  18. I never really was into posting checks….. I mean the only one here is from like 4 years old. 2006 was the last good year for nextpimp its been declining since. 2007 we fully focused on AuctionAds and in 2008 we are focused on fighters.com and other properties.

    Btw I am not a super affiliate 😉

  19. This news made a LOT of people happy today. 🙂

    1. I have read so many articles or reviews concerning
      the blogger lovers but this paragraph is in fact a nice post, keep
      it up.

  20. So thats your secret… you can see the future! No wonder you make a killing online 😀

  21. You and everyone else. 🙂

    The second they made the move to begin purchasing DoubleClick, anyone who understands what DoubleClick and Performics does realized they would need to sell it off. Biggest rumor I hear is Linkshare is looking at it. i think OpenX should look at it too, since Google is going to kill them with Ad manager and they need to leverage against it.

  22. I’d rather just have all the best keywords to advertise on Google for ringtones. I’m sure Shoe knows those.

  23. Google needs to wake up and get their shit together… cuz their stock is gonna tank. Adsense revenues are way down and many people are jumping the adsense ship…. perhaps because they treat us like garbage…. and pay us slave labor wages. Sell your GOOG while you can if you got any.

  24. As I understand it DoubleClick’s core business is advertising. The SEO services part was secondary. Google as they’ve done in the past have paid for the whole business in order to secure one part of it, so you’re right, to them the perceived value of the advertising network was worth it.

  25. Good prediction, shoestradamus! You can earn money on such predictions.

  26. They should do that.
    Google opposes SEO and so that would contradict that. So in fear of that, they might be selling it.

  27. This news proves that Google is living up to its motto: Don’t be evil.
    Going into search business appears evil to webmasters.

  28. DoubleClick’s core business is Adserving, not advertising. It’s the technology that makes displaying ads on sites possible.

  29. Yea, they make it sound easy, but there is so much they don’t tell you it’s pathetic.

  30. Nice prediction! I didn’t thinking Google was capable of selling, as I only hear of them buying, buying, buying, and buying, anything and everything on the net that has value to them.

  31. Google is always buying or selling something. Why don’t they focus more on their ad programs to help users make more money…

  32. I’d have to agree with that. I’ve wasted a lot of money on Adwords. It would be nice if they were a little easier on the landing page guidelines.

  33. […] From Shoemoney: This morning Google Announced they are selling off the SEO Division (performics) of Doubleclick. This will come to no suprise to shoemoney readers as I predicted this last month live on Strikepoint with Mikkel Demib … Read More […]

  34. But Shoe why don’t you crank up the prediction machine for something really useful. Memphis or Kansas tonight?

  35. Thanks, i am still wondering how it was working, why they didn’t start to simply sell positions, a sort of premium edition of AdWords, huh?

  36. Google is in absolute denial about SEO, laughably so. Good prediction, look forward to more.

  37. That might be your view, but people mention you, Zac etc. as the super affiliates on the web Jeremy 🙂
    Lets see how big your check would be this year!

  38. Hey really inspirational design indeed. I really appreciate the originality of designs in real creativity. I am also working on my new logo project. Thanks for sharing it will surely help me alot.
