Several entrepreneurs said they stood to benefit from Google launching products that would compete with their own. Adam Goldstein, the CEO Steve Huffman, the CTO of flight and hotel search site Hipmunk, said the debut of Google Flight Search brought considerable media attention and record-setting traffic to his website.
“We should be so fortunate that Google launches Flight Search every week,” Goldstein Huffman said. “We had our best traffic day since we launched on the day that they launched. We got mentioned in almost every story on Google Flight Search. It was a great opportunity for us to grab a lot of users.”
