P2P doesn't seem to have had a good time lately, either at home or abroad, with a domestic overhaul of Internet finance on one side and a foreign Google announcement that it would ban all short-term microfinance companies from advertising on Google's platform.
Google said it would no longer support loan ads with a loan term of 60 days or ads with interest rates of 36 percent or more from July 13. The company said short-term micro-loans were "deceptive" and would have a "negative impact" on borrowers. In addition to short-term micro-credit ads, Google's platform prohibits counterfeits, weapons, explosives, tobacco and hate speech.
David Graff, Google's director of global product policy "We want fewer users to be exposed to misleading and adversely affected products," Graff said in an official blog post. Google said the ban would not affect companies that offer mortgages, auto loans, student loans, commercial loans or credit card services.
Short-term microcredit has been the subject of criticism from politicians and consumer protection groups. Short-term microcredit, they argue, charges super-high interest rates to consumers who are usually poor. Short-term microcredit, also known as payday loans, has been on the rise in North America since the 1990s and is a small, unsecured short-term loan backed by personal credit, which relies on the borrower's work and salary records, and the borrower promises to repay the loan on the next payday and pay a certain amount of interest and fees, so called a payday loan. But for many borrowers, short-term micro-loans and the interest they generate make it difficult for them to repay them in one lump sum, creating a vicious circle of debt over time.
The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is now considering enacting a new policy to further limit the development of the short-term microfinance industry. The department is expected to formally issue a new policy by the end of the year.
But Google's announcement on Wednesday could have a bigger impact on the short-term microfinance industry than any new deal. Google currently controls two-thirds of search traffic in the US and the world's largest digital advertising network. Under Google's new policy, the company will no longer display ads from short-term microfinance companies in search results when users search for keywords such as "loans" and "places to get cash."
While short-term microfinance companies accounted for only a fraction of Google's $67 billion in advertising revenue last year, they were highly profitable. Pew predicted in 2014 that ads related to short-term microfinance would bring $4.91 to $12.77 in advertising revenue per click.
Google's mother-in-lawSalhabet last year changed its famous maxim from "Don't be evil" to "do the right thing".
Every entrepreneur is just getting started, whether it's Wheel A, Wheel B or even Round C, and may be added up to only 10% of the market, and 90% of the market is not those. You may notice that there is not much difference between how much you and your competitors have in this market at the present time, and it is important that you win 30%, 40% or 70% of the remaining 90% of the market in the remaining 5-10 years, which determines your future position and prospects in the industry. In the competition, technology is very important, "potential energy" is the entrepreneur to consider things, and to take competition into account, to establish their own potential energy.

At present, it is not the Internet mobile phone business model problems, but we are currently developing mobile phones really can no longer attract consumers. Now developed mobile phones bring together the highest parameters, the best CPU, the largest memory, the user experience is very poor. Many local sales friends told me that the failure rate of Chinese mobile phones is more than 10%, Chinese brands are the lowest price. We are often doing low-level competition, attracting attention to a lot of things, but what about the real experience and quality? How's the sales?
