    This is the title of a very nice article I just read written by Rand Fishkin about Google's "not provided" organic search data. It explains the problem and its futuristic implications as regards SEO and Adwords. I can't post links, so search for "The First Existential Threat to SEO" in Google if you want to read it (strongly recommended).

    Ohh this is ridiculous, first they said No data for google search on browser. even that was bad as it almost 30% of google organic traffic what a normal website get, now if they are talking about 100% no data its crazy!!

    Take a deep breath and wake up :) or vice-versa :) I've read the article and is again and again about the same thing - Google will be able to "kill" the SEO when will be able to analyze the difference between the human and machine posting behavior - until then we're just talking about nothing and we make threads about OMG Google will kill SEO - they can't kill something that they can't caught it.

    Of course they probably will never be able to kill SEO, but that doesn't make it less of a threat than it is right now. There are so many companies and SEOs relying on analytics keyword data to increase their traffic.

    google keep firing at the ground.
    Very soon they will shoot themselves in the foot.
    They are trying to alienate the very people who keep
    them in business.
    Without internet commercialisation they don't have a business.

    The limits between White Hat and Black Hat SEO are very thin - sometimes they even merge each-other or going hand to hand. So you can't do White Hat until you don't know the backlinks related to your website :) So if Google wants to do something they'll do it by their head :D

    Well said. If it wasn't for internet marketers and SEOs, there would be very few useful sites in the search results.
