Oh great. I welcome Google crawling my website - naturally - but not effectively scraping my hand written and unique content and displaying it without permission on their site via full page previews.
The EU and USA anti-competition departments have been very strict with Microsoft in the past, so here's hoping that - if Google go ahead with this - they'll take action?
Why can't they use small screenshots? What someone like Web Of Trust and some other Web 2.0 properties do give you an instant idea of what a website looks like and its sort of content, without allowing you to seriously read the content.
Plus as one of the articles I read points out, this silly full page preview will block the side ads. Please tell me that Google aren't seriously considering this (I fear they might be though, since it would massively drive up key click bids on its AdWords)?
