google: you can make money w/o doing evil

July 16, 2009

“Google is a business. The revenue the company generates is derived from offering its search technology to companies and from the sale of advertising displayed on Google and on other sites across the web. However, you may have never seen an ad on Google. That’s because Google does not allow ads to be displayed on our results pages unless they’re relevant to the results page on which they’re shown. So, only certain searches produce sponsored links above or to the right of the results. Google firmly believes that ads can provide useful information if, and only if, they are relevant to what you wish to find.” http://www.google.com/corporate/tenthings.html

if there was an original sin, it was preceded by the original advertisement. that apple sure seemed relevant at the time, huh?

 

Life of a Google Query
it could’ve been the gorgonet right there. but, in the end, they’re more interested in plumping themselves by feeding off their hosts (all individual users) than truly cooperating, which would naturally relieve them of their baseless worried needs of feeding off the host (making money through advertising).

the deceit is always the same. ulimately Google did not appear as users imagine, through inspiration; is not a private entity. both the technology employed and the information used comes from the living of life by individuals, taxpayers in many respects. this, at best, public information is then funneled through a seemingly private company, who is then tasked with distracting them from or charging them for being their own individual selfs.
