Google is cool, but you've got to wonder.

Why are these companies worth so much?

I mean, think of Microsoft recently tryin to buy Yahoo. I mean, they were offering like a hundred million billion gazillion dollars, and yahoo were like "no way" (then had their stocks plummet. Haha). What really makes them worth so much? Is it the name? People know google and yahoo, so they use them... but couldn't microsoft create the exact same thing pretty easily? How much could it really take to program some search engines, some news feeds, some webmail (hotmail sucks, granted, but they still got it), and some other similar features google and yahoo have.

And that brings me to my original point: all this is free, how could these companies be worth so much???

I don't know how they make money. I think cause they cheat and put a bunch of companies that pay them money in the front of searches.

You know, I think that's a big part of it. There are no ads that I can remember seeing on google, so there has to be another way they get their dough.

There are ads down the side of google when you do a search, but they call them "sponsored links".
