Google to keep focus on Web search

CNET "Google is unlikely to make any major investments in original content, choosing instead to keep its focus on Internet search, a top executive from the Web powerhouse said on Tuesday.
Tim Armstrong, vice president of advertising sales, said Google viewed itself 'as an operator of the Web' rather than a company that would produce original text, films or images.
'We don't really have a ton of serious conversations about creating content,' Armstrong said during a panel discussion at an Interactive Advertising Bureau event in New York. Instead, he said, Google would prefer to stick with 'getting users where they want to go.'
Another Web media company, Yahoo, has shown more interest in moving into original programming, ranging from news to columns. "
