Is it unrealistic to think that search engines, like other media, would want to earn money from the impressions and leads they deliver?
I see the ads off which I make most of my living declining because people need to sell goods and services. Is it that Google is changing the SERPs? Could be, at least in part (though obviously the economy is a big problem too).
newspapers, magazines, billboards, radio, TV, Yellow Pages, handouts, and (in more recent years) online ads. Is it unrealistic to think that search engines, like other media, would want to earn money from the impressions and leads they deliver?
Newspapers, magazines, radio, and television produce or purchase their own content, at significant expense.
With the current course, the incentive to allow Google to index great content goes away.
