@Play_Bach I think webmasters have more influence than you know. We are the content creators and Google does not survive without content to crawl. I don't think Google are running scared one bit. But also don't think there is as much Google Love out there either.
Google survive because in many countries there is no viable alternative. To most users Google provides satisfactory results but SME's and Content Websites have seen a rapid decline in their traffic. A specialist website is now replaced by brand or by a BH listing.
So we try to get some dialogue going, but that's ignored. I see our only alternative is to build our own search engine, and why not. If things are as bad as they seem for SME and Content Webmasters they should have plenty of time on their hands to create something new.
Hitchiker has tried very hard to get some dialogue going but it's fallen on deaf ears. But at least he tried. What would your suggestion be Play_Bach for a SME or Content driven website post penguin and panda?
