I agree that almost all the larger search engines like Google, Yahoo! and MSN are now starting to break out in to specific verticals. It is similar to the publishing business where major consumer publications were the media giants, now the smaller more niche publications even regional publications have adapted the "vertical" mentality and have become very profitable and a force in the publishing world.

I think the next big thing online will be a break out into different verticals and then a land grab by the larger companies to buy those verticals. Business in general is the same no matter what industry you are in you just have to learn to adopt the business principals that work into the new medium which in this case is online!
