  1. I actually think this is the American version of a campaign Google is currently running in Canada. Google has partnered with several Canadian service providers to push businesses to enable businesses to create free websites.


    The idea seems to be to promote Google’s small business products (apps, adwords, etc.)


    The Google Apps Marketplace is a major a competitor of Businessapps.bell.ca, which is powered by AppDirect, so we’ve been following it pretty closely. I’m guessing it was a test run for the US campaign. NYtimes.com did the same thing with their paywall


    They seem to have been having a lot of success with it, so they’re probably preparing to launch it.
