Neither sound bite seems very convincing. I'd be more likely to believe that growth is slowing because major segments of Google's market are becoming saturated (graph 1-e^(-t/b) for example), and that future growth will depend on products and services that open new segments or "raise the ceiling" by creating new demand.


Google is attempting to off-set its losses by trying the law of large numbers in its algorithm. The interesting thing would be to see, how Google fits it in it's algorithm.
