    It seems Google is also having problems just like we are! They had a $68 share drop.

    LOL well I've got to the point where I do product shopping using Google image search instead of the actual Google search because it's so unreliable... so what does that say about them?

    I'm finding results to be all mostly paid advertisers tongue nothing on content really except ones who pay for that too I'd guess. Nothing from 'ordinary' people really and they are the ones who can help figure out the 'honesty' guage. Don't they know that the public treats advertisers with some suspicion tongue

    Seems advertisers are starting to prefer the cheaper rates on mobile devices. The announcement on G's negative numbers was made prematurely today and caused some panic selling thus the big drop in stock price.

      Did Google send its SEC report by mobile, or did they tweet it?

    I have also the paid advertisement results are the target for Google now. As well as "big sites."  I had one search result that had half the listing from the same site, but different titles from the same website. I remember seeing this type of results after the first Panda that really hit HP drastically. It didn't go well then, so why would Google do it again?

      Google images...I have seen results with one pic kinda close and the rest not even close to what I was looking for. I go to Yahoo or Bing and see better results.

      Michael, I am getting the same results with searches. can come up as many as 5 times in the top results. It makes me want to use another search engine.

    Well, duh!  When you go mucking about with your algorithms constantly, and fouling up everyone else...whaddya think  is gonna to happen?! 
    Folks are going to be unhappy and your shares will fall !!  Gee--what was the first clue?? 
    But, corporate CEOs, genrally being clueless, probably won't understand the connection, and will continue to mess with things...
    never having heard the expression,"If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

      Problem is, Google is in a continual fight with Black Hat Seoers who keep trying to get around all its "natural" search results.

      Investing in the stock market is basically legalized gambling.  Just as with visiting casinos, you don't gamble money you can't afford to lose.  That leaves out folks like us trying to subsist on a Social Security/Disability level fixed income.

    So Google is not so very might after all. Speaking of Google I do believe that I still haven't had them approve me for Adsense. At one time they gave me a trail run but afterwards I don't know if they approved me or not and if Hubpages has me down for Adsense. How do I find out????

      you should have a message in your email about the status of the application. Or I "think" but I'm not absolutely sure since it's been years since my application, you'll be told that your account is still being processed if you use the same details to apply again. Took me three tries by the way, to get my application approved.

      Gypsy Rose Lee, You will also need to add your Google Adsense ID at Hubpages when you are approved. If you haven't been approved, you should try again.
