Last week, I promised to continue my discussion of GoogleClick by exploring what the deal, assuming it goes through, will mean for Google itself. Overall, my grade for the deal is very high: I'd give it an A. But I still can't give the deal an A+. For me to do that, Google will need to address its plans for Performics, DoubleClick's affiliate and search marketing division. As a search marketing firm that would be owned by a search engine, Performics presents a real conflict of interest for Google.
