Matt just tweeted about Google’s fresh, new web spam report form – apparently its first update in 10 years! Yes people, it’s a big news day!
You can find the form here: www.google.com/tools/do-our-job-for-us
Let’s see. Google crushes legitimate business websites in an attempt to remove spam from the index. Google crushes competition by undercutting them left, right and centre (analytics market is pretty much stagnent and frankly Adense just promotes lazy webmasters who’d rather take some easy bucks than work at their business). Oh and is quite happy to take vast amounts of our information without mentioning how valuable it actually is too loudly…
And now they want us – that’s the webmaster community (because frankly, no one else cares about paid links – in fact most normal people probably find the idea ridiculous) – to hunt down some evil paid linkers!!
I already give you my search data, browsing history and patterns via Google toolbar, metrics on the quality of my websites via Google Adsense (for a minute fee…), traffic metrics via Google Analytics, an idea of my financials, budgets and target market via Google Adwords. And now you want ME to improve YOUR product….for FREE?
I think not.
My charge for this service is £500 per reported paid link. You can afford it and frankly this relationship you and I have has been one sided for many years and I think it’s about time the balance was reset. C’mon – cough up. There’s plenty in the war chest since Gates, Jobs & Co nailed the patent bidding war!
