Think about it is Google worth ALL that time?
All what time?
I've always focused on content and the user experience, not SEO, and my sites have always ranked well in Google, Bing, Yandex and the others.
why give the users a websites content, without them visiting your site
Because if I give them some of my content via the search engines I stand a better chance of getting them to come visit the site. Isn't that the whole purpose of a search engine?
Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but from my point of view blocking Google serves no purpose because all it will do is cost me potential visitors and offers no upside at all.
