Is this then the right time for a new/alternate search engine to replace Google?
Its been changing rules set by itself and at times penalizing webmasters who followed what they interpreted of the rules (sometimes wrong as the rules in itself left lots of room for the same.)
Most of the users visiting google do so for search primarily and then its other services too.
By trying to get over its main identity as a search engine is google also hinting towards getting off the "Do No Evil" bandwagon?
I personally feel its getting more and more pushy in terms of being the middle-man/agent in every sale that small/mom & dad sites make.
