    Every business out there has competitors, and Google is no different. Every network we use like Bing, Amazon, Facebook, and even Twitter give us the information we search for, so in a sense they are competitors. So the question is can another network or community replace Google? If so which ones?

    How would SEO exist within a different paradigm?

    I think it is hard for other search engine overtake google.
    Google is difficult to surpass, as long as it does not make a big mistake.

    It may be hard to overtake Google, but that doesn't mean someone shouldn't try. It may not take a "big" mistake for someone to overtake them either. One of the reasons why Google has become such a popular search engine is their simple interface, and ease of use. Then, it may drive marketers crazy, but Google has updated their algorithm several times over the years, to make the results that users get even better. Even so, the basic idea has remained the same - enter a phrase, and get a list of websites where you can find what you need. You can now ask a question, and get an answer without leaving Google.
    The one thing that can cause someone else to overtake Google is if they become complacent, and decide they don't need to do anymore because they are the best. That is highly unlikely, but if someone can find a way to do what Google does, and do it better than Google does, they can become the best.

    In near future. It doesn't look so. But you never know digital world is very volatile. Currently Google is King and would continue to be for atleast next one more decade.

    I see it very unlikely atleast for the next 10-20 years atleast. When you are talking about 70% of the web search traffic, the closest one can come is by cutting it down to 25% of search traffic but still Google will continue to dominate search engines.

    As guys mentioned before, It is almost impossible to overtake Google search engine. However, if you are targeting specific country or even place, then you can try to use different services. For example: in Russia a lot of people use Yandex.ru and it's quiet useful to promote your web-site on this search engine service.
    So everything really depends on your business. What where and when...

    I don't think so any search engine would be able to overtake google in the near future at least. Everyone looks to google when they want to need to something online and this is not gonna change in few months or few years or may be even few decades.

    It will be really hard for the other search engines to take over Google, the closest one can come as of today is Bing with atleast 17-20% hold on search results.

    Interesting & challenging question. It's very hard to beat Google because "Google processes approx 40,000 search queries per second on average, which translates to over 3.5 billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches per year worldwide".

    No other search engine is expanding at the pace that'll threaten Google. Google is more known to the people than the term "search engine" itself. So, at least for next 10 years, there's nothing that can be competitive for Google in the same scale. Although DuckDuckGo is getting really really popular among youngsters.

    I see Bing as the only competitor to Google. Also, with the latest changes happening in the Google algorithm I highly even doubt anyone has that technology to out muscle a giant like Google. It will take something very special to outsmart Google at it's own game.
