        1. Arafat Hossain Piyada says:

          If you take search engine success away then Google will die. A giant share of Adsense profit come from search engine not from individual site, Gmail is free so not profitable if there is no Adsense. So in one word if search share goes down, Adsense will go down and if Adsense go down Gmail will be paid service and if Gmail ask payment it will die too. So, they have only success in search engine and their whole success depend on search engine and search engine only their earning resource. That’s why Yahoo! CEO ask Google to show their success other than search engine because every where they fail to implement a good revenue model.
