Monopoly is not even the word for this, it's bad engineering thus leading to a monopoly to destroy small business VERY FAST.
My opinion: Google is hurting small business badly, BADLY wit this new algorithm! I really can see them in another lawsuit over this all. I have had very good sites up for years, both are hit 60% lower from Panda. I have been an SEO for a very long time, none of the decision making at Google seems to be working here on this new algo. I don't see the point, I don't see how it helps anyone, this new algo is a failure IMO. If this same opinion can make it to Wall Street Journal, then you would think something has got to give. I wont re-arrange my websites for weeks to find out there is no change for the better after all is said and done. This is all just stupid really.
