Boycott Google!

GOOGLE.COM, Cyberland -- Google has done it again. First they trashed me with their stupid AdSense program by attaching Liberal, Left-Wing, Anti-Bush ads, and Anti-Bush links to my CONSERVATIVE blogsite... so much for "Google AdSense" (maybe, "Google Nonsense"?).

Then, they outright rejected ads for a conservative book critical of Bill and Hillary Clinton, while they had no problems with ads for books critical of George W. Bush.

Now, they are rejecting ads for a Christian-based organization. Click here for more details. Please also note that at the end of the linked article, there are links to previous articles citing Google's apparent anti-Christian bias.

Well, if you haven't noticed, I have removed any trace of Google from my blogsite (that I could find). If you find anything remaining, please be sure to let me know. WHY???? Because I have started my own boycott against the behemoth GOOGLE! I am David against the Goliath named GOOGLE! Boycotts start small, but can end BIG. Please join me in my crusade against the Google Goliath. There are plenty of other search engines out there. I wouldn't give Google the time of day.

Those of us with websites or blogs look for ways to promote our sites or sell products.

As we all know, links from Google or Amazon can generate bushels of traffic to our website or blog.

But what is gained if we must sell the soul of our site or blog in order to realize these gains?

Selling books through Amazon, requires discounting the books 55% to Amazon, and you shipping the books one at a time as orders come from Amazon.

Amazon immediately discounts the books 30% and becomes your competitor selling your books. This wipes out any chance of you selling any books at retail.

Write a book, publish it, pay for printing thousands of copies, sign up with Amazon, and make a few cents on the sale of each book.

I already boycott Amazon, I neither buy nor sell through them.

I'll add Google to my boycott list.

Amen! Michelle Malkin wrote some time ago that Google won't reference her site as a "news" source, but Google accesses democratic underground and a lot of lefty opinion sites.

Even the sequencing of sites that come up in a search emphasize negative articles against the current admininstration and its policies.

I use www.askjeeves.com if I am looking for information.

Kajun,
Thanks. I will repay you the favor by removing the Amazon ads from my blog site.

onlineanalyst,
You know, it's kinda fun when a couple of geeky guys do something really great like create the world's best search engine. And if those 2 guys make millions of dollars doin' it... then more power to 'em. I don't begrudge 'em that.

But when they start playing politics, and start using what should be a politically neutral tool to push a Liberal, Left-wing agenda (in the tradition of say C-BS, or ABC, or NBC, or CNBC, or MSNBC, or CNN, or WaPo)... well, that just really ticks me off, if ya know what I mean.

Regards (:D)

Does "Yahoo!" still use Google for their search engine? I know they did previously, but I'm not so sure they do anymore. I've used "Yahoo!" as my search engine for years...

Yahoo dropped Google a year or two ago, and created their own (great)*search engine.


* Meaning my websites rank well at Yahoo!

I'm convinced. Who wants to support an anti christian organization? Not me. From what I have read, their E-mail policy amounts to an invasion of privacy so I have refused the offer of a G-mail account.

I'm glad to know "Yahoo!" doesn't use Google, though...

I was seriously considering using the Google ad thingy, but I won't now. I also noticed that I have to scroll the results from a google search to find something I might really want to reference (get past DU and moveon.org).

I think Google owns Blogger, host of this blog, and mine as well. Might be time to visit Typepad.

SactoDan,
Drats! I think you're right. I noticed a copyright for Google at the bottom of the sign-in page. I guess I'll think about setting up shop somewhere else... Drats! And double-Drats!

I use Yahoo and Alta Vista for searches.

I sure am learning a lot about Google though. Thanks guys for all the info.

I don't watch Jane Fonda Movies, I don't rent many movies of lefties, and I guess I won't do any google ads on my blog.

:)

FAR.

Screw Google and Screw Amazon. Google has thousands of my dollars and blacklisted me with no recourse and stole money that I earned for them through adsense saying that I violated one of 4 items withouth telling me whichor offering me recourse. They took my money and said they would distribute it back to adwords clients! 4 years of using adwords, I never have received a Credit, have you?
reach my Blog at Boycott Google
Class action lawsuit waitng for them and need some good programmers to start Screwgle search directory.
