    Personally I dislike Google if I saw it on fire in the Gutter, I would not tip my cold cappuccino on it to put it out.
    Its a nasty little organisation that needs some full on competition, by that I mean real competition..... Not just a replacement that is as useless.
    Everyone wants to make money... Google is the only one doing it so lets face it Whats to love.

      Not only doing it but making huge money, at the cost of us. Actually, Google is The Company and I want it burned to the ground. smile

      Then I would suggest you not use Adsense and quit all sites that make money from the company.

      Hi mandybeau I also dislike Google a few years ago I was making on average £11,000 per month using what was known as Froogle at the time. Then Google changed everything scraped Froogle and launched Google Base this was a major downfall, £11,000 a month went down to on average for the past two years a measly £26 a month The money I was made from using Froogle all went into another venture I had going at the time which was a 100% free online auction with no fees but once the money stopped I was no longer able to support the running of the auction site and had to close it down. Google messed It up for me, but I am not bitter I just don't like them. However this does not mean you have to like everyone you work with!

        Hell I made up a Hub and called it Froogle as a joke I didn't know trhat it actually existed. No it is a silly situation, with their entire system. Alot of the people on here are basically uneducated or so dirt poor they appreciate, what is basically the droppings of the rat.
        You made that much Incredible.... But based on advertising I work in the Field, Advertising is worth big dollars so unlike many of the google fans onn here I don't appreciate, the meagre offerings especially since I don't even get those.

    You have to understand that google is not that ruthless as it seems, although they make money, alot of it, they provide quality service for people and are relatively generous, 80% profit back to the people for adsense, that has to be fair! Compared to 60% back to people in hubpages. sad

    1. mandybeau profile image61
      mandybeauposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I have heard all the figures, but it makes alot in what it holds back. Just for instance disabled accounts, it has many reasons for disabling accounts, none make alot  of sense as ads are meant to be seen. This is accross all the sites not just Hub pages, No stillthink that they are corrupt as hell.

      While no official figure is given, I've heard plenty of talk that the Publishers get far less than 50%.

      1. mandybeau profile image61
        mandybeauposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        I would definitely think that you are correct, I saw figures some time ago and it was not 80% way less.

    I'll defend Google.  (Even big corporations sometimes need a little defending, I think.  smile  )

    They have hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people who try to earn money by having their ads on their site.  A lot of those people wouldn't be earning any ad money if there wasn't the "Google option".  They're a huge, huge, business; and they have to make a profit to keep running it.  A person who really knows what he's doing (when it comes to Google) can earn a decent income from home; and Google offers that opportunity to anyone who meets their very basic requirements and follows the rules.

    As far as closing down accounts goes, they have a reputation and legal matters to worry about; and they have to keep their advertisers happy, or there won't be any ad revenue for anyone, including them.  They offer all kinds of help and "tools".  I know if I'd take some time to do some of the things I should be doing (optimization), I'd be making a lot more than I do now.  Who knows - I may run into some big problem with the in the future and be mad at them for some reason; but for now, I think they're great.  It's a business deal.  If any individual Hub performs the writer gets paid accordingly.  As far as how far I'd go to "please" Google (not that there's a "Mr. Google" sitting in an office somewhere), I guess I just try to follow the rules they set out in their TOS; and if I didn't like them I'd "un-sign-up".

    "Speeches" often come a little too easily to me.   smile    I'd like to add, though, that I wouldn't go as far as to say I "love" Google at all.  There's no crying in baseball, and there's no love in business deals.    smile

    Well I dont think Google needs defending ,in fact they are well used to being challenged.
    All part of business no doubt.
    I do think they are greedy but then I feel that way about most mogul giants even M'cDonalds.
    Money is what makes our big bad world go around how-ever, so as soon as Google disappears another fat cat will emerge.
    I still remember when Windows Microsoft also receieved much the same critism and Google was just in its infancy days.

    They have done well and delivered a service the people wanted.
    Speed with accuracy.

    As far as using people to make money , well of course thats what a business does to make money. Look everywhere , thats the name of the game.

    I love Google because it helps me to earn money I otherwise wouldn't have, but I despise Google for the fear it causes me every time I open my email box and expect that dreaded message 'Invalid clicks'. I have never clicked on my own ads, not even once at the beginning when such things are tempting, but does that make me safe?

    I think everyone would be happier if Google had several healthy competitors. Nobody wants their livlihood dependant on the whim of just one company. Especially given that it is remote, hardly accessible on any human level and deals with the world through a massive computer that can decide on its own if you have an income or not.

    I do a lot of work online and have worked in business offline.   I'm no kid, and I wasn't "brainwash-able" when I were three years old, let alone now.   I'm not brainwashed, and I don't think too many other people are either.  I know what I'm earning each month, and it's based on that that I see the Google arrangement more than worthwhile.  I'd be earning more if I spent any time reading any of the "help" (or other stuff) on Google, but the other side to that is that I know I'm not "brainwashed", because I don't spend any time reading anything on, or about, Google.

    So often when some people are not satisfied with something, but other people are, the ones who aren't will say that the others are brainwashed.  One Hub that is in demand can bring in at least a couple of hundred dollars a month.  It's not being brainwashed to be satisfied with that kind of earning potential.

    Google Has the market in there hands and they will never let it go, also people do not sway even if the other is better they do not like change. That is why Google is the number 1 most visited site in the world and will stay number 1.

    I have written 99 hubs.  In a month's time I get about one eighth of the way to the grand ten dollar mark.  I don't put a lot of business savvy in it so it is probaby my fault.  Cookie cutter commercial ads make google happier than real articles but I don't seem to have the talent to write them.
