Is Google selling us out?

Rumor is Google is fudging its algorithms to favor big business. Read this news item, and after that check out these posts at Blogcritics (1), Blogcritics (2), Blogcritics (3) and make your own conclusions. Better yet, why not join the discussion?

My take on it is this. So the rules have changed. The gurus will just figure out new ways to boost the ratings. It keeps us on our toes and the search engine ‘experts’ in business. However, if the allegations are true I question the ethics of playing favorites when you have the monopoly for search engines. It is incumbent on Google to keep a level playing field. After all, that is what attracted us to the internet in the first place. It gave all of us little people an opportunity to compete against the big boys. There is immense power having the only serious search engine on the web. With power comes responsibility and whosoever controls access to information on the net also controls it. What do you think?
