You've never seen nor heard ME scream a whimper. So don't know who you're referring to.
If anyone's keeping count, my predictions are HORRIBLY accurate to what Google is doing and where they are going. Both in terms of the company and the SERPs.
Perhaps, you should read MY posts to MC in that thread. Seems to apply to your understanding of "how Goog works" as well
I've been saying since Day 1, Google DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU. So again, wrong person to argue to.
I have, and will, continue (if allowed) to point out why and when Google's "official pronoucements" is ultimately detrimental to the WEBMASTERS business.
(And most importantly, what webmasters SHOULD be reading into those "pronouncements")
And subtly point out how a little "public ranting" goes a LOOOOONG way to shaping what Goog does or does not do.
Again, you need to reread my posts to MC in that thread.
Goog has done a VERY EFFECTIVE MARKETING CAMPAIGN convincing webmasters that Goog controls them, when in TRUTH, like all matters, the individual masses CONTROL them.
Who's paying Google's bills?
Who's giving Google it's profits?
Wake up already!
You, and others who share your beliefs, can continue to give your power away to Goog.
Suffice it to say, there a very few people on here who ARE NOT swayed by Goog's whims and stay 6-12 months ahead of them.
One's must ADMIT there's a problem and that they have ALLOWED Goog to "dupe" them, before they can see the REALITY of who should be dictating to whom.
