MySpace is losing so many visitors that it probably won’t get all of the $900 million it expected from a key Google deal.
That’s a pretty devastating blow for the site, which signed the search deal with Google back in 2006, when it was still one of the Internet’s crown jewels.
But now, MySpace has lost too much ground to Facebook and Twitter. And it’s looking like Google won’t even have to make the minimum payments promised under the deal. Google was supposed to pay at least $900 million based on certain traffic milestones, but those aren’t being met.
