A pedantic quibble... The body of the article uses "complement", but the title has "compliment". That puts the article ahead of the headline in the Long Tail spelling bee.

Thanks for such a nice post. Google’s protean appearance is not a reflection of its core business. Rather, it stems from the vast number of complements to its core business. Complements are, to put it simply, any products or services that tend be consumed together. Think hot dogs and mustard, or houses and mortgages.
