I read “Why I left Google” yesterday and as usual, didn’t enjoy being told my favourite tech company should not be. The guy basically says Google sold its soul for ad dollars.
I disagreed of course. And to convince myself the guy was just plain wrong I observed that even though the guy was going on and on about how “The Google I left was an advertising company with a single corporate-mandated focus”, he didn’t mention anywhere where the advertising was a problem. Instead, he complained about having issues with Google the company being turned into Google+ the product. By Larry Page.
So I clicked away a self-assured Google fanboy. The today, I searched for “Domain registration”. Only a quarter of my first screen is dedicated to organic results. The rest is just ads.
