    It seems that forcing mobile compliance will make it hard on ecommerce sites.

    This is what you get when there isn't enough competition. I'm wondering if there's some quid pro quo between opening up the data servers to the NSA and anti-trust enforcement. There's probably a good market out there for a search engine that guarantees privacy. http://duckduckgo.com has been getting a huge spike in searches after the PRISM scandal.

    Reagan.com has had a surge in their email service. http://reagan.com/ is partly owned by Michael Reagan, son of Ronald Reagan. They promise not to copy, scan, or sell a single word of your email content.

    Now I like that Reagan site!
    True, it is 40 bucks a year to have an email address, but well worth it from everything I know about emails and the companies that control them.
    Including my own present isp...creeps send me local offers based on what I get and send via email!
    Hmmm....I wonder....if I started getting emails from porn sites and starting sending out emails that contained a lot of porn words....would then my isp send me emails on the local hookers, massage parlors, sex toys, etc?

    Even the duck looks like a better option for searching.
    Will try them out for the next week just to see.

    I'm just hoping that capitalism drives people to other search engines and takes away google's power.

    Google is always keeping up something. And really itt's up to us to play into it if we choose - or we can just do what we feel is best and build our business on our own terms. Solely or heavily relying on Google in order to build your business is an unstable business model anyways. It's like building a house on sand and you never know when the next Google Tsunami will come and smash it down!

    I agree with you, unfortunately webmasters gave this search engine 70% of the search traffic, they just marketed google for the users and complied with their daily changing policy and they have been betrayed by google. Google saw an opportunity to bring the big box stores, once all the little guys sweat to bring credibility to internet to many people. Google turned their back on the little guys who did the hard work for years.

    The morality is google motivation by greed looks like any multi national corporations, to squeeze the little guys for more dividends to their investors.

    The book is cooked, the market is saturated by the big guys who won, the little guys lost like usual.

    Unfortunately there aren't any viable search engine alternatives to Google. Bing/Yahoo ctr is only 1% at the bottom of the pack.

    Google doesn't love us anymore. I can live with that.

    The annoying part is the constant rule changes.

    On other hand crony-capitalsim may mean that other search engines aren't able to compete with the 'cronies'.

    In their own Googley world, I am fairly certain that Google thinks they are doing good things for the web. However, I have never found anyone who think the SERPs are now showing better results, plus they destroyed millions of formerly viable small businesses and billions of dollars of value on the web. This must also be having a huge negative impact on the domain registration business. Lots of web site owners are abandoning non-producing domains. I know one guy who recently abandoned over 400 domains. It is no longer worthwhile to renew the domains.

    Thank you very much, Google. "Don't be evil." Bwahahahahaha!
