I feel like they are now using this data against us.
I think their search results are flawed. When Yahoo answers (with incorrect information) outranks my well researched articles there is something wrong. The fact that they say if you have a few thin articles, they will punish the entire site (so knock out the exceptional articles), and yet still favour Yahoo answers, there's a big problem.
I think they've tried to inject themselves into everything. I do think they started out with good intentions, but I don't feel that is the case anymore. I haven't disabled Analytics yet, but am very close to doing so. The less of a hold Google has over me & my site, the better.
