i don't know which types of websites most other WebmasterWorld members operate. but increasingly it seems to me like there are quite a few pensioners around here who have written something on a static html page in 1998, enjoyed steady rankings in google serps and income from google ads for years and years, got fat and lazy and when things took a turn do nothing but bite the hand that fed them. like the companies or not, but this persistent google (and facebook for that matter) hatred from grumpy old men makes me sick. rant over.
to quote myself for clarification:
all content aggregators, search engines and every website with user generated content on a larger scale would have to close down.
it would certainly hurt my business if the big guys would have to change their whole concept upside down. again: i simply can't believe that none of you wouldn't be concerned about these issues.
but i said that in the first place, because since some time, i'm an operator of a search engine with massive user generated content myself. if i would be responsible for all that stuff, i would have to close down, simple as that. so it seems that many of you want that kind of web services to go out of business regardless the circumstances. thanks.
