Do you think that Google is being more strict for its publisher day by day?

    Do you think that Google is being more strict for its publisher day by day?

    Every day google bans accounts and de index sites and many times for no reason. Will it effect Google in future if its competitor come in market?

    Yes google is being more and more strict. If at all competitors come then surely google will have a setback - but just small. Since google is strict many advertisers prefer google - this ensures they pay only for genuine clicks.

    Delisting sites is done on all search engines.  If your site is good you need not worry

    In the long run, this is better for everyone (readers, good writers).

    Not included in "everyone" are the article spinners and poor writers simply clogging up the internet with their poor attempts to make money.

    If this so called "competitor" advertises a search engine for Google's unwanted scraps, then I would say hooray for taking niche marketing to the extreme.

    No.  But, I do think they are sinking to petty larceny and fraud to keep their profits up as the economy sinks like the Titanic.  While all of these accounts are being arbitrarily disabled and earnings are being stolen, they are reporting earnings up 33% in the 3rd quarter!

    See:  http://investor.google.com/earnings/201 … nings.html

    Theft and fraud are very profitable in the U.S. these days!

    If you have been a victim, go to the Better Business Bureau web site and file a complaint form.  The BBB has received a lot of complaints about them.  They are not recommended as a safe company to do business with.

    I think it is very difficult to keep everyone happy like they were able to do in the past. Many years ago it was very easy to make websites popular because there weren't so many people trying to do it. Now that millions upon millions are coming onto the scene it will be impossible for Google to keep everyone happy. They won't be able to give enough money to everyone through their incentives. It is all about money and nothing else. Once there is not enough money for everyone then things start to crumble. People are not really faithful to Google but to people who give them the most amount of money.

    No. I think they are simply prioritizing main stream media content (MSN, ABC, Fox, NBC, Demand Media) over other sources.
