    The short story is a person (not my client) was hit badly by Hummingbird.

    This was his message to google:

    message to Google.jpg

    How I know this is that he is a friend of a friend. Trust me you have never seen angry until you have seen him angry!
    He was absolutely LIVID when most of his keyword ranking disappeared overnight.
    Ironically his site has a nice backlink profile and very few spammy links, but he still got raped by Google.

    So he moves over to Bing and makes a 30th of the money you can on Google, that will show Google. Basically people who keep bitching about Google, do not belong in the IM / Internet money making.

    I cannot tell you how much he was making, but it was over $20,000 a month.
    It looks like a lot money, but he had several staff and two offices as well as other related costs.

    So i havent a clue what his net monthly revenue was.

    He was in business for 9 years.

    He was a marketeer for 10 years making $20,000 a month and then it drops to $2,000 a month.
    Can you blame him? He just had enough of Google.

    I doubt he will lose too much money after increasing his Bing Adcenter budget and whatever else he does for marketing, but even then it will be less than he used to make.

    Yes the response is child like. If he cannot handle that this is what happens without spitting his dummy out, I think he is in the wrong business. Things like this occur in all businesses and in life in general. Him moving to Bing will will affect Google not in the slightest, but it will affect his business. By all means I would be looking at other routes, but one simply has to learn to control ones emotions when in business, and not let them get the better of them.

    And when they do, the new giant starts to swing its dick around and upset people. It is called life.

    Your Friend needs to accept the fact that the world isn't fair, buy hey giving up wont help either.

    Bing doesnt have nearly tenth of traffic as google, as instead of boycotting them, why not spread their eggs in different baskets, make more sites etc.

    I suppose your right when I think about it.

    However to be fair over the last few years he had to deal with multiple Google updates that almost continually reduced his amount of website visitors, and costing him money (by having to keep increasing advertising spending on ....whatever). He has kept his cool, not complained and dealt with it for these..oh 8 years or so, but hummingbird was the last straw for him.

    Yes, one account being cancelled will not affect google, but his hope is other people will do the same so that it eventually affects Google.

    Yeah I told him look at other routes, but he is in a very small niche, with just 15 competitors, and there are maybe only 100 or so keywords that actually get sales. (the niche is still a highly paid one though).

    People who have any brain at all in IM, do not just stick to IM, but invest their money into other things. Because anyone with half a brain can work out nothing in IM is guaranteed or stable. Writing letters to Google does one thing and one thing only, and that is give Matt a little hardon, because he knows he is getting at people. Google will always be able to be gamed, just got to let the dust settle a little and carry on.

    Yeah your right.....

    He has more sites (3 or 4 I think) but the site that was affected was the most profitable.

    Very true.

    To be fair he did invest into other business, but what was affected was the most profitable business.

    No, it's called taking advantage of their authority position and screwing everyone who gets in their way.

    Imagine G hq in a WTC scenario.

    I bet everyone at Google are crying themselves to sleep every night, because of this...

    Tell your client to grow the fuck up, business is business.

    Yes like every monopoly does. So whether Google retains its position as number 1 or not, some other company will only come along doing the same as what Google does now. What if a search engine came a long which had no algo, they just basically choose what was at number 1? Certainly that would be far worse than Google.
