The irony in all this is that the vast majority of us sing from the same hymm sheet. We hate the way google owns us, we worry about traffic,
we worry about monopoly,
we worry about algos,
we worry about panda,
we worry about changing our sites,
we worry about intervention and regulation,
we worry about whether google is within their rights,
we worry about our bills,
we worry about our staff,
we worry about worrying now.
So - the irony - we worry so much - we know so much - we own so much. Collectively we OWN the web - and yet we are owned.
So what do we - the OWNERS OF THE WWW DO?
We are like a hunted herd of zebra where the lions just wander round eating us. But is ok because its not my turn today.
Google does NOT own the WWW - they appear to - but they do not.
We do and our combined strength should be put to use IN FAVOR OF ANOTHER ENGINE to split the traffic.
Its either that or we all die.
But - I know - its right there in our faces - all our knowledge and all our skills - and yet we are too far apart from each other to beat our worries.
We have to combine our strengths to make this situation right.
Like it or not - we need a revolution of sorts - or we just die.
I wanted to add - google are within their rights to crap on us all - and believe me - we are within our rights to crap right back at them. But only together.
