Have You Been Scroogled?
Did we expect anything else? It always happens when you become the number 1 rock star.
What you say is 100% accurate. The businesses that have a lot to lose by google being #1 are always going to go after them and this will never end, just a new leader to drop down a couple of notches -- IBM, then Microsoft, then google, then someone else, and on, and on, and on...
And, I would write it off as that if google didn't treat website owners so poorly and claim they have no interest in helping them because they say that website owners aren't their customers. ??? --> These are the people that bring all that traffic to google and the trafic they bring ends up clicking on google's paid ads, both PPC and shopping now.
If this ad campaign is successful, it will be because of lash back from the online community supporting Bing's position because it's true. google said one thing and did another. google is being asked to be truthful and honest, and they haven't been.
