EBay study questions value of Googles main ad service
EBay Inc, operator of one of the largest online marketplaces, questioned the value of Google Inc's main advertising service in a recent study.

EBay, one of the biggest Internet advertisers, released a study examining whether the paid search ads it bought on Google and that show up to the right of search results were worth the investment.

The study highlights a potential problem for Google, which generated USD 46 billion in ad revenue last year, up from USD 38 billion in 2011.
