|Google is shooting itself in the foot by favoring itself |
Google clearly favors itself in the search results: google groups, blogspot, youtube, etc. These sites are all at the top regardless of their relevance or usefulness.
What made Google successful is the quality or relevant results they return to their users. This self favoring clearly disturbs that system.
It really upsets me when spammers or shills can basically make a post on a google group and include a certain keyword and go right to the top.
I know that I have developed "onebox-blindness" - that's a close relative to ad-blindness.
Me too, very rarely even register the ads or the Google properties.
