Try launching a new site/domain for money/adwords terms - you will only find the sandbox, for 9 months or a year!
True, but but refusing to put all new sites in the SERPS for a year or so is 'throwing out the baby with the bath water'!
This is just poor thinking. If publishers and writers such as the one that stated this thread are going to stop what they are doing, the internet and it's content is going to suffer. If entrepreneurs and inventor with great ideas and small budgets can't have a presence bec' of Google, the web will be stunted. If everyone eventually ends up working for the big BS companies (American) their creative ideas will often not reach the light.
Shareholders and investors are getting control again after their initial failure during the .com bust. Now they are back and smarter. Watch out little guy - the big greedy money makers are here.
Any organization except Google - ie one without a conflict of interest and billions to make by squeezing the little guys and using their newly found power for the purpose of making money.
Come on are you serious, or just being dogmatic? SERPS have always moved as new, and often fresh/better, competitors come along to play. The sandbox has stopped this 'natural selection'. Google manipulates SERPS for its own Adsense revenue - that is clear - and don't say it doesn't bec' that would be stupid.
I thought I was commenting and agreeing with what the original thread was about?
