First mistake Google made was charging clients for posts. People didn’t want to pay when they could use Yahoo, which is totally free, although their answers don’t have the same quality as the ones Google offered. Mistake number two was its surplus of notifications, even after questions had been answered.

In our opinion, Google made the right choice by buying Youtube since this webpage popularity is huge and really difficult to overcome, even for Google, which is probably one of the webpages with the most visits nowadays.
