    Interesting the tie he makes between Google and YouTube (Capital T by the way). One day the sun will set on these empires as well, we just have to figure out how to take advantage of their demise.

    Big G is a real B!tch. Did you guys noticed that YT is giving only one raw d0f0ll0w link? Very cunning..

    I have heard him say this before, I think the post is good but it may just be his way of pushing the "get banned quick" YT f00l software.

    Why would the EU step in? They are busy censoring the Internet and tracking their citizens... and G happily obliges. Get an European vps and start counting the number of videos marked 'not available in your country'. It's every second one.

    But the article has a flow, why would G care of YT's backlinks? They own it, they can slap it at any serp they want, 1 or 1000.

    Also YT is a money black hole too. It swallows terabytes of traffic each hour. I may be wrong of course but it seems its upkeep costs a lot more than many people realize.

    Once an Empire is built on the Internet the $$s are huge and they can hire the best and the brightest to stay ahead of the curve! They all start out with good intentions and good products, but the the good intentions quickly change to greed, but people keep using them because the products stay good. Look at EBay!

    2 things can be learned(remembered) from this:

    A) Don´t have doflw links pointing outside of your site. Keep the whole flow distributed well to your own pages(if that´s the site you wanna rank of course)
    B) Spam youtube wisely(select great keywords and promote your video) for a good chance of overpowering tough competitors with your video on google serps, driving the traffic to wherever you want to.

    Google is still king. However, no matter how powerful an emperor is, his reign and his empire will not last forever. Even in the political world, the emperors of the ancient Roman empire ruled like gods. It was as if the world would never exist without them. They dictated who would die and who would live. The life of every human being depended on the temperament of the emperor. What happened? The Roman empire fell and the powerful emperors fell along.

    The same is in the internet world. The internet era is still very young. That is why Google is still reigning. That is why what Google says is "'law" and everyone would just have to obey or regret it. With time, things will change. Then SEO will no longer depend on what Google wants.

    What is $77 a month? I don't understand what you are talking about. Where does a $77/month software come up here?
