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!
