Well - rockitfuel - errrr yes. Right then.
Now - down to business.
Post above said google will go down - its just a matter of time.
The thing is - i'll be an old man by the time that happens - theres too many fanboys yet to get their asses slapped by g (mind you any fanboy worth his salt would probably enjoy a google spanking), and another group (the public) who couldnt give a toss.
I wonder - in reality though - whilst I cant stand goofle - I sometimes wonder whether as a site owner I am in the minority or the majority.
Reading this thread - I think the latter - but in terms of globally - I sadly suspect theres still a large majority if google bottom kissers out there.
The simple most sensible thing in this thread (and there are a lot of very correct posts here) is the one which says give bing some free advertising.
Its a HUGE picture to comprehend is that - but even enough to split the market a bit more would put the site owner (IE THE INTERNET OWNER) in a stronger - and more secure position with his/her livelyhood.
This for me is key (below)
The thing is - we rely on the engines - we acknowledge this in the main part.
We try to please one of them - in the main part. We spend a lot of time and money on pleasing just the one - and yet for almost ZERO dollars and ZERO risk - we could split the market.
It wont happen of course.
The Lions know this aswell - the poor Zebra herd only has to stampede the lion and kill it to change their lives forever.
They wont stampede though - because they are cowards. Stupid Thick Blind Cowards, and they will continue to be eaten alive for all eternity.
Do they deserve this life of theirs then?
