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!
