Should we Care If Google Is Evil?

Google is violating antitrust law by using its market power to favor its own products in search results over competitors. This what a Federal Law suit wants to stop.

As evidence, they cite examples like when consumers search for "Best Sushi New York" on Google. The first result is a blog post from Zagat, a Google-owned restaurant review site. Below that are seven restaurant listings and reviews from Google's local information service. Further down is a link to reviews from Google's competitor in the market.

Google's critics argue that consumers are unaware that Google is allegedly suppressing rivals' products in search results.

So what should we do regarding the MONOPOLY Powers of Google own and control our EYE BALLS, which means what we think and what we buy?

Should we remain as passive SHEEP and let Google control our EYE BALLS an Wallet or do you think we should take action? And if yes, what action can we take?

It is a very interesting question.

Well, I want to offer the best way to outbeat google. That is search engine optimization. By learning to optimize your own site and get them ranked on google, you naturally outbeat google without paying the cost of advertising.

Google will remain the giant always but if we do work on our seo , we do stand a chance to always outrank Google too:)

Well there is a much better solution to breaking the Google EVIL monopoly, and it is staring you at the face. That is it is this Anoox people powered search engine where the search results are determined by our Vote.

Of course, we should care for our own good. Maximum power in a single hand never bring us good fruits (Hitler). But we also keep in mind that Google have to save us to save its own business. Because you and me ( more others make together "WE'), WE are the key term of Google business.

I take a minute to answer this. But in my opinion, this is normal on business that every company will prioritizing their own product/services first rather than competitor. The most important, they still providing the information. Doesn't matter if just only some results. The worst one is if they displaying all their products example displaying their own product on the results such 1 million of 1 million result.

You must be kidding!
Or you must be a Google share holder or employee.
Since by Google placing its own products 1st, and since Google has many many products and acquiring more every day due to having Billions of Dollars, then as a result of this bias toward their products they will drive UP and UP the cost of sales for competing companies and if these competing companies are small businesses then they will be driven out of business since they cannot possibly compete with Billions of Google.

Nope. I'm not one of them.
I am objective person. Why I said that, In my opinion it's a normal business practices all over the world. Protecting 1 side will affecting others. There's a lot of marketing tools. One of them is S.W.O.T.
So use this tools to analyzing the S.W.O.T factors of your business then making a decision based on the positioning

Difference between Google and what you call "normal business" is that Google has monopoly powers. I mean with the exception of few not-for-profit outfits like this Anoox, what the hek would we do if Google dominance rises and rises to the point that or example Google has 10 competing companies ahead of my company in the listing, and all these 10 Google companies drive up the cost of Pay-per-click so much that I as small business cannot afford it!

You know there is a solution to the question, to the fact that, is:
"Should we Care If Google Is Evil?"
And that answer is staring you in the face, it is this site we are on called Anoox.
For Anoox is a not-for-profit search engine, so:
1- They have no incentive to control your Eye Balls a Google does
2- Cost of Advertising is much less here

So you can whine and whine as long as you want about:
"Should we Care If Google Is Evil?"
For neither Google or the Government will do a darn thing about, or you can something about it which is to advertise via alternative sources such as this not-for-profit Anoox.

It really amazes me how so many people just either go along with monopoly powers like a sheep or just whine about! Do something about it people.

We have to pay much more, EVERY DAY, EVERYTHING, to feed Google greed.

If Google was not a monopoly, then we will not be paying 30 to 40% more for goods today. Is not the economy, it is Google.
