Lijit is so very close
The study revealed that Lijit had its widgets on 45 percent of the sites involved in the study, with Google ahead by the smallest of margins at 47 percent.
A Lijitimate Path to Success?What knowledge can we possibly extract from Lijit's findings? Well, clearly Google Search has some competition when it comes to site specific search. It certainly wouldn't be devastating if Google lost the lead in site specific search, but, then again, maybe Google will simply put the Lijit team on the payroll if that is truly the case. This also proves that having an impressive group of employees that reach out to the community can really be an effective marketing scheme. It is clearly obvious that the Lijit team is working hard to reach out to their users and make them happy, and word tends to travel fast on the Internet.
That's a lot of widgets
When all is said and done, we must make it clear that these numbers can't be taken too seriously -- there is a glaring conflict of interest in this study, and that should make everyone think twice. Now, if an independent firm did this study and came to a similar conclusion, we might be inclined to rain praise all over Lijit's accomplishments. But for now, we will give them a nod of approval and send them on their merry way.
