This smells like bullshit to me. Google's search results are generally extremely good from the "customer's" point of view.

People whining about how they're hurt by losing search position inevitably turn out to be spammers or other lowlife that have been trying to use "SEO" or some other shady practice to artificially inflate their search position.

So yeah, Google is bad for con-men. Darn.




I've been spending time in Black Hat internet marketing forums (out of curiosity). They hate Google. Google is consistently making their search engine better for the user and worse for spammers.

I have a slang dictionary site that's currently being penalized by Google for showing citations of slang use gathered (by hand) from media.

With the penalty, Google sends 1/3 less search traffic. And I whine about it. But I'm not a con man.
