  1. Perform SWOT analysis for Google that identifies alternatives for the company.

The SWOT analysis of Google shows the internal capability and external factors of the company. The company is a leader in online advertising. In addition, the company's brand is very influential and valuable around the world. If Google want to keep it, however, it must address threats in its business environment. SWOT analysis shows that Google has enough strengths to overcome its weaknesses.

Google offers a much more efficient service than other search engines. Everyone can go to Google and get their information without any trouble. These advantages show that Google is growing and improving. The company's diversification shows that its business is expanding. Strong brand image, patents and large organization size are all advantages of the company, which enable the company to conquer the competition and new entrants.

Google's reliance on the Internet means that if Google is to gain market share in developing countries, it will have to wait until Internet penetration in those countries increases before expanding its presence in those countries, such as online advertising. The company is also an online-focused company with few physical stores. It is in a weak position to compete with physical companies like apple.

Since the increase in searches and associated advertising revenue depends on growing the number of people online, Google could expend fiber coverage to generate more revenues for the business.

Google's pioneering efforts on the Android operating system make it a direct competitor to apple. Google is diversifying its business into non-advertising revenue areas, as can be seen from Google play, Google Maps, etc.
