Why do you Google? Information Entertainment Commerce Navigation All of the Above Today, when we have decisions to make, we turn to Google. Google has become the Kleenex (or, shall I say kleenex?) of the search category by providing the most relevant search results. Every brand must solve a fundamental need and create a filter to remain relevant. Use Google as a litmus test.
