Google Gifts Really Seem to Have Gone Downhill

We received an email today from Google asking for feedback on one of our bigger clients. Seeing how reliant we are on Google’s PPC interface and tools we were happy to oblige. What did make us laugh was the unappealing incentive they were using to get people to share their opinion.

On offer was this charming gym bag…

But before you all get in touch asking for how you can fill in the survey, we’ve been sworn to secrecy. (Though if you ask nicely we might let you have ours.)

It got us thinking though despite being named one of the UK’s top brands their gifts now aren’t as nice as the glory days

Take this fridge for example…

This gift is more practical than stylish but Just Searching’s USB kit could come in handy

I’m sure there are loads more that have been sent out over the years and they all seem more exciting than a gym bag.

If you’ve got any photos of Google gifts you’ve received leave a comment and I’ll include them in the post with a link to your blog…
