Google took a simple concept - text keywords - and became an Internet leader. In most markets, Google has the search market share lead and management is looking to expand into new markets. The search giant hasn't quite found its next big hit, but Google Apps and Android are promising extensions of the business. The game plan for Google: Expand into new markets like mobile and grow advertising revenue. Google is also dabbling in everything from broadband to power management to alternative energy. The company is well positioned to benefit from cloud computing and the consumerization of IT.
