    GOOG shares crossed $1000 each today...

    http://money.cnn.com/2013/10/18/investing/google-stock/index.html?hpt=hp_t3

    What's the recipe to billions of $$$????? Lots of ads above the fold, black hat tactics, Matt Cutts spreading FUD to set you off foot, massive scraping, copyright infringement presenting data next to their own ads, traffic throttling, deals with big brands to list them more frequently, demoting competitor networks such as Tumblr and promoting your own(Blogger, Youtube, etc) and there you have it: $1k per share.

    Google is 100% black hat! Google buys and sells billions of $$$ in links every day via AdWords, but they come after YOU if you purchase links from a BST.

    Google will penalize your sites for scraping content and placing it next to ads, but scraped content is what their SERPs are made of, and last time I counted they've got 20 ads, some with a very light background placed above the fold, not clearly distinguished from "organic"(big brand) results. The others on the sidebars and all over the place.

    What do you learn from $1000 stock price??? BLACK HAT PAYS OFF FOR GOOGLE, IT PAYS OFF FOR YOU TOO. Keep it up guys, GOOG is our black hat leader! We do what Google does!

    Holy crap this is dumb. That has to be like the worst analogy I've read all year. People pay Google and 3rd party companies billions of dollars a year to appear in the search engines, and if you're not happy with something appearing send them a DMCA.

    Nobody is perfect. But what OP just wrote is just dumb, extremely biased and actually doesn't even make sense. I don't give a crap about Google and SEO, because my business does not rely on it at all. But you can tell when someone is butt hurt enough to create a nonsense thread they do. Talk about outing your own insecurities.

    I don't think anyone wants to hear my "I hate google/I hate Amazon/I hate major corporations in general" speech again. This has nothing to do with being "butt hurt" or insecure. It has everything to do with hating corporate greed, the underhanded and immoral lengths that corporations go to, and the two sets of rules that are made for corporations vs we the little people. People all over the world are tired of the two sets of rules that apply and the transparent double standard. If you made cookies and sold them at your local outdoor market, and you didn't specify that the cookies contained nuts, and people died from a nut reaction, your behind would be in jail faster than you could say blackhat world. When Nabisco does it, it's called a recall and you will get some money and a "We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused." When google captures people's private information and saves it for whatever ungodly things they intend to do with it, they get a "Now, now, that's not nice. Okay, moving on." If you captured people's private information and saved it for whatever ungodly things you were going to do with it, your behind would be in jail faster than you could say blackhat world. I could go on and on with examples. There is a double standard that applies to corporations vs the rest of the world, and people have had enough.

    Just like you don't know Jack shit about google, doesn't mean its not happening. Your opinion here irrelevant, isn't it? NK just killed 15k people due to expenses of feeding the prisoners. I bet that is also bs and dumb, because you don't interest yourself with stuff like that.

    I get what you are saying, but I still think a lot of people are extremely narrow minded. If Google and SEO didn't exist I doubt this forum would exist, and if this forum didn't exist you'd probably be ignorant to the IM in general and hoping to get a full time job at best.

    So be my guest and hate on Google, I don't care. But if you've made money because of the existence of Google, and still rely on Google to make money you should at least show some respect.

    You know Matt Cutts is a human being, and while you might think it's funny to poke fun at him, I am sure he finds it tough when Internet thugs and punks harass and bully him day in day out. He's just doing his job. It has to be someone's job to stop the search engines turning into a shit hole, because if they did turn into a shit hole, search users along with your money would be GONE.

    But what do I know, according the the person Invoker I know jack shit anyway.

    No offence Chris, but although your posts in other threads may be reasonable,
    the OP is simply voicing his opinion, and not at all extremist, IMHO.

    Put the entire thread into perspective, and you will derive the true meaning,
    no need to hate !

    So, if you do not understand the "logic" of the thread,
    then perhaps it would be best if YOU leave this thread now,
    and let the more "progressive" members have their say!

    Do you know how many times I have commented on his blog (which he never publishes), sent feedback to google, and ratted Amazon out to many news outlets including the NY Times, and nothing was ever addressed regarding google letting amazon get away with major blackhat sheet that we would be banned from the serps for.

    Another irritating thing...I have complained numerous times regarding amazon's ads on google. If you put the name of my store in google, an Amazon ad shows up. It says "Buy (my store name) at Amazon." The hell??? The ad takes people to a page that says something like "We're sorry, but the page cannot be displayed." And the searcher is right on amazon to buy something there. And you want me to show respect. Good one.

    You're right, people have their one sided opinions. To them I am the anti-Christ, so I think it's best I leave.

    It's not that people have one sided opinions. It's that you have not experienced the problems that we have and cannot relate to what people are angry over.

    Google is a monopoly abusing its power

    and Matt Cutts is only doing his job

    Isn't that what the Nazi Doctors said about the concentration camps

    Nobody said google doesn't do good things, But that doesn't give them the right
    to make rules which others must obey, and yet be above the rules themself.

    Some people say , they made the business and they have the right to run it as they like.
    But that again is bullshit
    Try opening a gunshop in New York and sell Guns to Al Quaida.
    Would you stand up for the gunshops owner and fight for his right to do what he likes
    in his business..

    what the...I thanked the original post because it showed that all the stuff Google does to discredit SEO is not for search quality, it's making sure their clients aren't overtaken when they pretend to be fair.

    If they made paid links explicitly as the first results, not clearly marked as ads, there would probably be legal issues brought up.

    It's black hat, and kind of a tongue-in-cheek joke(but understanding humor requires intelligence...) because "lol guys, even Google tells people to buy backlinks!" That's Black Hat.

    The post also suggest to keep on going because black hat methods aren't ruining anything. Nothing is being taken from Google. Feel no remorse and keep trying to outrank Amazon and friends.

    What the hell are people bitching about? Did you read the post or did you read your preconception and are airing out your panties?
