I completely agree that it's almost like why bother using Google, just go to Amazon, Twitter, Wikipedia in the first place. A big yellow pages somebody said? That's the same "feel" that I have.
The point here is yes, sure you can get your traffic, just pay for it via Adwords. Just like the "real" world, you "pay" for advertising.
So Matt Cutts and company are still going to be viewed as flower lovers now if the trend continues?
Like I said, my feelings are fueled by the people who are deeply affected by what's happening here. I'm mad about that. It isn't just a matter of it's their business they can do as they please. Their core business, the internet goes much deeper than that. This is what happens when one entity becomes too much. A lot of people still don't realize what happened to their traffic just yet or what Panda is. I'm angry that one company can seemingly change the core of what the internet is. If this continues, my feelings towards them could change forever. And yes, I mean forever.
I'm giving this time to correct itself or to realign. I'm hopeful that it will, but I'm certainly not holding out any hope for that. I know how the Panda philosophy is. It's saying it without saying it. Well guess what? I want no part of an internet that is commercialized to this extent.
