Google will penalize your site if it cannot steal your images!

Apparently not letting google steal your images is against Googles (fascist) guidelines. Google images scrapes the internet for any images it can find and then displays them on its search results by hot linking to them. By hotlinking images the bandwidth of the site being hotlinked to is used up instead of the site doing the hotlinking as the image is being loaded directly from the site being hotlinked. This means Google uses up your bandwidth and not Googles. BANDWIDTH ISN’T FREE. If google using up your bandwidth and stealing your images wasn’t bad enough google doesn’t even send you […]

Google is too powerful

Is it right that one company has so much control on the internet that it can effectively make a competitor disappear if it wants…? Well, that is what Google is doing and is getting away with it. I am writing this article to help spread the word of just how powerful Google is and how Google is using its power for, well evil really! Google’s main source of income is through ad revenue, the fact that Google sells such cheap mobile phones, tablets and computers is not because Google is aiming to make a profit on these devices but to […]

Google ranking sites based upon facts

Google maybe planning to rank sites based upon the facts (according to what Google thinks is right or wrong) instead of ranking factors used at the moment such as links. If Google incorporates the technology it has bragged about in a recent scientific paper Google could use it to censor information that it does not want being seen by any of its 1 billion unique visitors per month giving them the power to extinguish any ideologies that go against Google’s own! Controlling what information is seen and what is not is a power no company should ever have and has […]

Beware of Bing’s greedy ads!

It would seem that bing is no better than google when it comes to ads or greed! Bing is displaying so many ads which push the organic listings way down.. so far down that only 1 real result will be viewable without having to scroll down.. and the vast majority of the time this real result will either be ebay or amazon.. ouch this surely makes bing a pretty bad search engine if it struggles to provide searches unique and worthwhile results (its hardly worthwhile searching if users are just directed to a bunch of ads or simply a bunch […]

Google using ad data to rank sites?

A patent has been recently granted to google that indicates that google maybe using ad data it collects from its advertisers to better understand website and thus improve their search engines rankings which some may argue breaches ftc guidelines, Google have always stood by the notion that websites that run google adsense on their sites do not automatically boost these site in the search results but we are not talking about adsense sites however this patent is not limited to just ad data collected through adwords but also adsense ads served on a site could help the search engines learn […]
