You know that little “I’m Feeling Lucky” button on Google’s main search page… Well although it is nifty for the user, its costing Google $110 million a year. Yup, $110 million!
According to Google Vice President of Search Product and User Experience Marisa Mayer she said:
You know Larry and Sergey had the view, and I certainly share it, that it’s possible just to become too dry, too corporate, too much about making money. And you know what I think is really delightful about Google and about the “I’m Feeling Lucky,” is that they remind you that the people here have personality and that they have interests and that there is real people.
