I take nothing google does personally, it's just business. google invested in a direct competitor of mine. Shortly after that we lost 70% of our organic traffic due to an "algo update" named penguin, coincidence or not it's just business. google has years of analytics data that we gave them that they can share with their newly invested in business, my bad there. Can no longer even compete in adwords because we are buying traffic directly from our competition, again, nothing personal, just business.
This business will be the biggest PIA it can be on the way out and the next business, I guarantee you will get it's customers before google does, not from them.
Call it whining if you want but it's just the facts, and from these facts I have learned very valuable lessons.
