I'm not the one to go into conspiracy mode, but it looks like Google is expanding its war on small business and I don't like where this is going.
I am a medium-sized publisher with approx 40k adsense views on any given day. But lately, I am observing massive manipulation in my account e.g. removing a lot of revenue from my account. Of course Google is quick to say it's invalid clicks, but I never had so much problems with invalid clicks in over 5 years and there is ZERO transparency. I understand that Google can't give away much info to avoid click fraud, but they need to start disclosing something. Are they testing a new anti fraud algorithm or what is going on?
Google's war on small business may just have started. They really put us small business owners through a lot last year .. and now this?
Just read this, it's an eye opener:
I am sick of where Google is heading. They have a frigging responsibility to give small business owner a fighting chance, else we end up with a totalitarian world where only large corporations exist.
How about a little transparency? How about some SERPS that dont push all corporations to the top? There are literally no organic results any more - all of it is corporate bull#*$! or Wikis.
