Bing launched a huge campaign against Google complete with full-page newspaper advertisements, commercials on television and a shiny new website, scroogled.com, to draw attention to the changes Google made. The home page of the site explains their beef with Google: “In the beginning, Google preached, ‘Don’t be evil’-but that changed on May 31, 2012. That’s when Google Shopping announced a new initiative. Simply put, all of their shopping results are now paid ads.
Google search results , according to Bing is ‘Scroogled”
In the beginning, Google preached, “Don’t be evil“—but that changed on May 31, 2012. That’s when Google Shopping announced a new initiative. Simply put, all of their shopping results are now paid ads.
In their under-the-radar announcement, Google admits they’ve now built “a purely commercial model” that delivers listings ranked by “bid price.” Google Shopping is nothing more than a list of targeted ads that unsuspecting customers assume are search results. They call these “Product Listing Ads” a “truly great search.”
We say that when you limit choices and rank them by payment, consumers get Scroogled. For an honest search result, try Bing.
Don’t get Scroogled this holiday season.

Now the same complaint is leveled against Bing.
“I’ve been one of the biggest critics about Google’s change, which has indeed been largely under-the-radar,” says Danny Sullivan, an SEO expert and the former editor of Search Engine Land. “Unfortunately, Bing is hardly in a position to be lecturing Google about poor disclosure and charging for listings, when it has the same issues.”
He published an in-depth piece that explains what Google has changed about its Shopping section and compares how the two search engines disclose information to consumers.
“No matter who’s doing it, search engines forcing businesses to pay for inclusion on their shopping sites without clearly indicating that to consumers is wrong,” says Ali Husayni, the CEO of Sinai Marketing.(master google.com)
Let us look at how search results are delivered.
Search Engines deliver by Crawling based on Key word and some more Algorithms.
The result are determined by the Content, ,Key words and good tagging.
It is also true that these alone do not make your site or writing to show up in the top results for a Search.
One can find inaccurate information, some times even irrelevant to the query as a result in top results.
May be this has something to do with set Algorithms.
This can not be avoided.
Either the results are due to content, tagging and key words-some times written artificially to draw traffic.
Here also theer is no check/
The other is the Search engines promote Paid content/ads.
This is business.
You can not avoid it.
One point is certain,.
If the result of a search gives you a bad content, one makes sure he does not visit the site again and he refines the search and goes to the other results.
PS.I am not a professional SEO Man.
My first Blog was on 29 August 2009- ‘Time-Non-linear Theory.
To day the,12th of September 2011, Total Hits 300,000 was reached.
I do not know whether this is good .
But I am happy that I have been able to write regularly and people have been reading , submitting comments and at times advise me the Subjects on which I should write.
I would like to say ‘Thank You’ to all of them-Readers,Subscribers and those who comment.
Over a period of two years and Twelve days of my blogging experience, I have made many a mistake.
I was confused between ‘Categories and’ Tags ‘( still am).
The Result. I have ,116 Categories ,8,501 Tags.
I came to know that Search Engines are designed to ignore people like me (who add unnecessary tags).
I was under the mistaken impression that Category is the Subject.
I am in the process of correcting these mistakes.
I have learnt that Key words are those words that come to me automatically as I write.
I was advised by people in the SEO that I have to use more key words in the body of the blog, which is saying ‘include as many key words as possible’.
I refused because it affects my flow and then it is not me writing spontaneously.
I read in Google Blog on Search Optimization, over-use of key Words is counter productive.
As I mentioned on reaching the One Lakh mark, I write ‘raw’,as people call it,with no touch ups.
After all it is not literature , but sharing of one’s thoughts.
I ensure that the facts are correct and I am true to my convictions.
If wrong in my views in the light of Facts, I correct myself.
I remember that i did not know what Visual editor was when it appeared in WordPress.
I just started writing and I was able to write easily.
Readers can still see Links in my earlier Blogs in Text Format( I am not correcting them to remind me often of my stupidity.
Uploading Images and Videos ,the same issues!
Then I started reading WordPress Help and Tutorials.
They are extremely useful for a man who can not understand much about Computer ,let alone Blogging.
Here I would like Thank WordPress Help Desk,especially Karim and Sheri , who systematically followed up my queries even if I forgot.
Thank You,Karim and Sheri.
Google Help on Blogging has proved to be highly useful.
To evaluate my site I rely on Alexa.com.
It is simple, devoid of jargon and I am able to understand where I need to pay attention.Not only Alexa gives me my Audience Profile, it guides me on Bounce rate,Key Word Search,Speed of the Site.
It provides me insights into Traffic Rank,Reach View,Page Views,Page Views per User,Time on Site,Search and Links among other things.
Quantcast and Woorank are two other sites of the same type.
They are equally useful.
Thanks to Google,WordPress,Alexa,Woorank and Quantcast.
And Thanks to my children, whom I have been pestering with my blog information ad nauseum , for encouraging me.
For the best web hosting, WordPress is the gold standard. Because of the SEO that is already incorporated into the WordPress platform, the customer’s search engine ranking will be higher than it would be with many other hosting websites. In order to keep your search engine results at a high ranking level, it is important to frequently update your website with original content. Additionally, when you post a sale or special event on your website, it will be found by the search engines more rapidly and your ranking will increase, so that you are closer to the top of the search engine results. This in turn will generate more traffic to your site and broaden your prospective customer base.
Creativity(!) of Google knows no bounds.
Google’s first payments from its new “electronic wallet” system may be to the online transaction company PayPal, which claims that the company and two of its executives stole trade secrets for the project.
But PayPal has filed suit in California following the launch in New York, alleging that Google lured away PayPal executive Osama Bedier earlier this year to obtain trade secrets that are now being used in Google’s service. The suit also names Stephanie Tilenius.
Google Copies yahoo…
I’m not sure if this is stupidity, laziness, or a mix of both, but check this out.
Today it seems that Google has similar intentions. So similar, that they decided to basically copy our page and slightly Googlify it. If you look, the design, layout, and most of the text are the same!
Google copies ‘Bing,
First, it was with their sidebar on the left. Next, it was having a wallpaper on your home page. Then, it was testing full-screen results. After that, it was showing results that included social data in an incredibly similar way to Bing (in relation to the recent announcement of Bing and Facebook being in cahoots but not to be confused with Google Social Search). Now, Google appears to be rolling out visual previews (called “instant previews”) of sites such that users can see them prior to clicking through to them. Personally, I think Google’s rendition of the feature is quite nice but it lets me know that we shouldn’t be so quick to count out Bing.
