Dear Mr Google - pls can I have a job
Just seen this on Global Edge about Google's property portal advances.
On July 6th this year Google announced its first foray into the property portal market with the launch of Google real estate in Australia.
Properties are presented on a Google map but users had to click to the agent’s or property portal’s website to view the full details. That changed this weekend with the integration of property detail pages into the Google system.
Google Australia, which seems to be the testing bed for Google’s global real estate ambitions, has now introduced Place Pages which are essentially property detail pages containing descriptions, photographs, local information, maps, videos and Google Streetview.
There are going to be some big casualties in the fall out here and I can really see Google sweeping up all before them.
So Larry (Page) how about a job as Head of International Property Marketing for Google, I'd love to help define and implement such a momentous industry changing strategy....
....based out of Cognac, France of course.
