Marissa Mayer heading Google’s location based service segment will speak at TiEcon 2011

Former VP of Search Products and User Experience for the largest search engine company that runs over one million servers in data centers around the world and processes over one billion search requests every day, what will Marissa Mayer share about the strategic focus of the company in her new role in the location space?  In her former role, Meyer managed 150 product managers who supervise 2000 software engineers and served as a gatekeeper and arbiter of much of what went on at Google.  Mayer designed and developed the company’s search interface and expanded the site to more than 100 languages.  She helped introduce more than 100 features and products on the site, including a faster Web search called Instant that gives users results as they type in the queries.  Who else could be a better choice to lead the location space which is the new frontier to be tapped as Google looks for growth outside the traditional Internet searches.  Shaper focus in this area can help Google get more advertising from neighborhood stores and restaurants as all new mobile phones are outfitted with local services.  Google currently generates more than 90% of its revenue from online ads.  Google is counting on boosting sales in the location space, despite the recent unsuccessful attempt to buy Groupon.  Mayer has observed that Google will use its existing properties to build internally what it was seeking to buy for $6 billion.  Will Google also be scouting to buy other companies in this space?  We will have a unique opportunity to hear some specifics and ask questions to Mayer, during her keynote at TiEcon atSanta ClaraConvention Center.
