Is anyone surprised?
You see all they (google) need to do is to continue lower the quality of their organic SERPs plus run a constant weekly never ending "index updates", constantly shuffling the position for websites almost on daily basis.
This ends up sending websites low-converting, junk organic traffic due to the constant yo-yo changing traffic flux....ultimately pushing millions of businesses from all over the world to use the AdWords program with a gun to their heads. Unfortunatly, for many online businesses it is simply this or die.
It is a lose lose for everyone.....except for Google ofcourse. You see, they will continue to display exponential growth time after time, quarter after quarter, year after year. Because they are operating in a vast market, ("search" is the ultimate gate to business on the Internet), a market they clearly dominate, a market that has unlimited supplies of money...
Internet = Ecommerce world wide = *RIVERS* of money
We are talking millions upon millions of (online/offline) businesses from all around the world, seeking proper online exposure...and they all must give Google a good cut if they want any nowadays...
How is something like that is even allowed to happen in today's world is really beyond me... what a sad sad state of affairs!
