Feedback for Google

Google recently sent me a letter thanking me for using adsense. And offering me a deal in Google Adwords. But the fact is that I had cancelled all my ads, and I had seven blogs of which six had been deleted and the other is on its way. Maybe Google is totally unaware. Perhaps they are nothing but a gigantic computer running amok. Have you ever thought of that? The only email I have ever received from them was totally devoid of warmth and rather intimidating, it could have been computer generated.

That is why I am posting this useful feedback; I figure their spiders have to index it, and if there are human beings behind the scene somewhere, they’ll get it. I don’t know. I really don’t know how it all works. All I know is that they are allowing plagiarism, which is tantamount to being plagiarists themselves; and in that case I don’t want to do business with them. I really don’t. They can keep their coupons.

But I understand; if you are making hundreds (or thousands) of dollars (I wasn’t) with Google Adsense you wouldn’t want to do that. You couldn’t! One thing you can do, however, is start looking for alternatives, as I am doing. There are alternatives to Google, you know. And let’s face it, why would you want to do business with someone who allows the plagiarizing of your work? It shows a lack of integrity, doesn’t it?

Another thing you can do is pass this on to Google; if you think there are human beings behind the computers and the spiders.

  1. Making a search engine take responsibility is probably pretty unrealistic. No one would ever be published if they had to prove they had purchased rights each time.

    The fact that you’ve found these discrepancies is proof that Google does a good job. If I were you, I would contact who ever plagerises your work. Insisting they link back or, remove the work in question. Platforms like Blogger will remove the work in question until something can be resolved. They notify the publisher after the fact.

  2. Hi Becky!
    Thanks for your input!
    I tried to contact the website in question to no avail.
    I then contacted Google, and more than two months after, they sent me an email with instructions — they do have a responsibility to crack down on irresponsible sites. I faxed them all the information requested (see my category “plagiarism and Google”) but they never acted on it — that was about three months ago. And as they say, if your word is no good, you are no good.
