Hell Yes it's a good move...this deal would be disastrous and I hope they get taught a lesson...just like when Ma Bell attempted a tactic years ago and the telephone giant ended up getting chopped up into smaller sections....Google is getting way to greedy and a monopoly is NEVER good for us as advertisers OR the public....no company should be able to dictate market conditions and that's exactly what would happen if the company controlled 90% of the paid search market.....I can't bel. i'm saying this but for once...GOOD FOR THE GOVERNMENT
This issue has to be dealt more seriously, since many online advertisers depend heavily on search engine vendor. For some reason, if their ad is shut out by Google, their livelihood is on the line. That is why there should be a second search engine that takes up a resonable market share.
I remembered a customer whose keywords were penalized by Google with $10.0 a click from $1.00 a click and Google said they would not know how long it would take for updated landing page to be reviwed for a new quality score. I know it did not happen in 2 week2.
