I am number 1 in google aswell - but this ill feeling I have (the same as the OP wrote about) makes me want to change things.
I am number 1 in Binghoo aswell - so the algos there are not really worrying.
I want to split the traffic.
You want to split the traffic between Google and Bing, and I want to split traffic between Yandex and Google.
See? We are already at odds. That's the point I was making. The "we should combine" thing doesn't work because it's not clear who "we" are, and it's not clear who should benefit from this action.
P.S. Notice how Google features in both our scenarios... That's probably the reason why they'll continue to dominate.
