I know I have created a few article based threads today, but here is another. I found good one for all those Google bashers out there. If your a true Google hater you saw the Motley Fool article last week, Friday.
How Google Is Killing the Internet By Seth Jayson
I am little late on some of this news because I let my inbox got out of control last week, but I am caching up tonight and finding some good stuff.
Anyways the recently posted on my blog about enormous insider selling at Google of late. Seth starts the article by pointing this out:
It is so good to hear more traditional press learning of the pain we all feel with the SERPs at Google, Yahoo and MSN. I am not singling out Google here at all, it is obvious that you don't have to look to far to find examples of crap SERP's on all three and those that think one SE SERPS are better than the other have no rational way to prove it. Depending on the business your in, you SPAM findings will vary, but the fact is it is out there for all three.insiders are continuing to drop shares on the public at a rate that boggles the mind. Here's just a brief peek at the latest tallies.
I bring it up only because I occasionally entertain the thought that Google has, in fact, destroyed the Internet. Well, not the physical Internet, mind you. Just the whole "looking for data" part of it that's key to Google's (alleged) information-based mission. The part that's held the key (so far) to its financial success.
Well no sh*t Sherlock. Why doesn't Google take a stronger stance on who actually uses AdSense on their websites is by far the biggest question I have. Doing this would eliminate so many issues that have cropped up in the past 3 years it is ridiculous.Whether or not you believe that the junk sites out there peddling AdSense ads are honest commerce or capitalizing on large-scale click fraud, there's little doubt in my mind that we've got Google to thank for it.
LOL, of course and Google gives schemers the key to success. Take away this key now!. Audit AdSense members/users NOW! Sure they say they do and I have even had one of my websites get a "request to remove AdSense" from Google and I did, but this is not happening enough.So why doesn't Google do more to put the brakes on this problem? Interesting question, because it makes a couple of assumptions that I find faulty.
The first is that Google can stop it. I don't buy that. I think when you pit a few hundred Google Smarty Pantses -- who are getting fat on stock options and gourmet meals at the Big Goo campus -- against many thousand enterprising schemers on the Internet, the battle will go to those hungry schemers every time.
And this is problem. Your guess is good as mine as to why other search engines don't attack the integrity of AdSense more.That's not much of a concern for the press out there, which is blissfully unaware of its prime position as Most Likely to Be Head Dupe in Google's hype machine. All the newsroom knows is that Google is prime headline fodder, and more importantly, it's not Microsoft, so everything it does must be worthy of ink.
