I can't see how favoring brands would make Google more money. Stuffing brands down the page so they have to open up their big pockets and buy Adwords WOULD make Google more money.
I can't see how favoring localized results makes Google more money, but maybe I'm missing something there.
Bute they changed the results/algo, not because the serps were bad or to get rid of the scrappers ( they would have been able to do that without killing half of the sites ).
What I know is I only change my good running website only to get more users and to grow my conversions. I would not put much work in it, when I donīt think it would get me more income. Not of all when I am the leader in business.
google is like a seo company. SEOs try to make a website better to get more users/conversions, google SEO changed their algos to get more...
