Hello Dudes and Girls
I think its time we all wake up and confess thats it time to move on, Google is no more. Think about it, how much time do you use to make google happy instead of being creative? and now think how that "working for google time" has increased since 2011, is it worth it or is it time to make websites for your users or customers.
I suggest that every webmaster starts being creative again, make some great websites, make your visitors happy and just create your "free" site without any handcuffs from any search engine. For free traffic focus on Bing, Yahoo, other SEs and social media, it works, I already have 2 sites where I have blocked google from the start and just focused on Yahoo, Bing.... plus social media.
You will really feel much better with your work, be cause you can do what you want, without guidelines from any. Also think about the future do you think that google will still dominate the search market, I doubt it, be cause there will be a lot of other options to find new sites, so why not start to work on your future now.
I would suggest you block google, be cause of bandwidth and text/image scraping.
Think about it is Google worth ALL that time?
