Since I’ve read of thousands of bloggers that this has happened to–and it happened to me as well on another blog of mine back in November, 2007, I don’t feel anything in particular towards Google.
Google’s Page Rank is no longer valid as it misrepresents what it claims to measure.
Unfortunately, the Internet world is not aware on a person-to-person basis what has been going on behind the scenes in the world of Google. They may have noted that Google seems to want to own everything but since as Americans we are used to and even encouraged to behave in this manner many folks haven’t taken notice of Google’s reach into the territory of being a genuine monopoly.
The IZEA blogs-only ranking system is in place and I’m much more confident in it’s legitimacy than “other” ranking systems.
Google’s official motto is “Do No Evil” and it is an excellent choice for a motto. After all, if you’ve lowered the bar so much that you will only Not Do Evil things then you’ve got lots of room to do say, Really Not Nice things or even Very Bad things. As long as they are not EVIL per se, all in Googleland is good.
