    It's going to be harder to get free clicks from Google in the future. I think that the paid inclusion program will be extended to medical and other valuable keywords using a new greedy algorithm.

    So the paid inclusion program do not need to be relevant like the free organic index. Does it provide a better user experience? or google is just going to display whatever it brings in money?

    Today we can see affiliates ads in google pay inclusion program that market other shopping marketing sites, it looks like an open door to pandora.

    It is funny that google bother every single webmasters with restrictions and rules to provide a super duper user experience when they provide cloaking and crappy user experience in their paid inclusion program.

    I think it's in Google's best interest to make the rankings between similar sites are random and undifferentiated as possible, thus instilling fear into companies for losing revenue and potential clients and resorting to paid search. Since the techniques that are used to get to the top rankings are quickly going away, Google essentially throws a dart in the air over rankings and forces companies to go the "paid" way as opposed to organic. This is a sad trend in my opinion and once again proves that monopolies are destructive.

    I agree with you. Forcing companies to pay for making revenues is one thing, but the problem with little companies like us is that margin are pretty thin to allow us to pay extra in their advertising system, and frankly it is working like a casino.

    Yes monopolies are destructive, and the worse is when a search engine encourage little ecommerce owners to invest in contents when at the same time their agenda is completly different. It was a total hypocrisy.

    I still hear people repeating the google rethoric that you have to follow the guidelines, blah blah blah, the problem is the guidelines are changing all the time lol.

    It is a take over by multi national corporations like google for other multi national or national corporations. Well call that cronyism.

    Natural Elements you are right, small businesses are facing difficult times after google updates launched in the last 12 months. I don't understand the reasons for this updates, but stories about "traffic lost", "penguin hit" are all over the web.
