    So that seo guy josh baczynski has made a full length, feature film about Google and how Google is hurting small businesses

    Here is the trailer:

    j.mp/dbetoff

    I find it funny this guy has such a hate on for google

    But the production quality is much better than i was expecting!

    Good for him telling the world about Google's evil ways!

    but I still think he has funny looking teeth

    Josh baczynski is a blowhard. He was one of the wankers on Moz's whiteboard fridays claiming he did 1 link audit a day. The comments on his post were hilarious too. He's a joke in the SEO world. No one listens to anything he says.

    These all doesn't have the drive required to run a business. They deserve poor rankings.

    If you want to see how retarded this guy is, he has a hangout that he records every friday with his fellow retard SEOs. All they do is talk about themselves and how awesome they are even though it's supposed to be a hangout to help webmasters with questions.

    Just sit in this hangout for a little while and you'll understand why he's the laughing joke of the SEO community. It's the one thing the SEO community gets right.

    Maybe it was your own fault by creating lousy video's I guess. Don't blame google/youtube for that. They want to keep their inventory as clean as can be. If it was your business you would do the same.

    i still think it would be interesting to watch, given that google split off and is now called Alphabet so they could separate their business from search, and the EU is putting more pressure on them

    It's your fault for basing your businesses success on the back of an algorithm.

    I really don't want to insult you, I am trying my best to be a better member here but that was your mistake. A foolish mistake.

    It was not anyones fault but your own.

    why does the "fault" matter?
    that's like saying it was a nerds fault for being a nerd? and being bullied
    or a woman's fault for being a woman, and getting sexually assaulted?

    why do people always want to give google a free pass from being dicks?

    All google are trying to do is rank the best site at #1 for every search term.

    What I just said is nothing like "its a woman's fault for being a woman, and getting sexually assaulted?" don't be silly.

    Building a website is like building a house. If he chose to build it on the edge of a cliff and the cliff erodes and his house falls in the sea, its his fault for building it there. The cliff is not "being a dick" for eroding, it happens.

    Google owes you, and everyone else nothing. If they want to change algorithms or ban your website they will do it. Their mission is to rank the best websites a #1 and if your website does not fit in with that plan then it will be removed.

    If your online business is not compatible with googles goals you're going to get fucked by them. If you're too foolish to not have a plan B if google change something then you're doing it wrong. If your business banks on the fact Google will never change what they do then you're asking for trouble.

    Its not googles job to satisfy you.

    no it's not google's job to satisfy me

    but that does not give them a pass from being a dick

    i like your erosion metaphor

    but that is just not the right metaphor

    google != nature !!!!!!!!!!

    google = people who make decisions everyday, who can decide to increasingly hurt other people

    or decide to be nicer to people

    that is an ethical decision they make everyday

    or rather, that is a decision they fail to make ethically everyday

    while claiming they do no evil!!!!!

    why do people constantly give them a pass?

    Google is in business to make money, they aren't like yahoo that doesn't give a fuck about their layout or spammy search results.

    Other than change THEIR algorithm what have they done to hurt you?

    They are not trying to hurt anyone, they are trying to find the best websites and rank them higher. Be it better content, design, style, language or whatever.

    Why would they deliberately hurt a business? where is the motivation for them to do that?

    Someone has to be #1 in Google, if their algorithm removes 1 site another takes its place.

    You're being extremely short sighted here, you need to look at the big picture.

    not true

    1. google has plenty of times just demolished other businesses because they compete with google. or google just doesn't like them. it's not just an algorithm

    2. even if it was just an algorithm, someone at google programs that. they say "we don;t like sites with XYZ parameter or about XYZ business" and they demote them en masse

    why does google, a private unregulated company, get to make these kinds of unilateral decisions of what business is good enough and which is not?

    when a government does it, at least we get to vote for them, and they change over in 4 years
