Best illustration of what Google did to Internet. Think about it : Head of the PR agency was named US Search Personality of the Year. Thanks to Google we got Hollywood branch. P.S. Hm ... But it seems to be not so bad, thinking more about it. Google created very strong competitor to itself. Or, to be more precise, Google unintentionally allowed very strong power from offline world, to get same strong power in the online world. I mean PR. I just caught myself on the fact, that developing new project I don't care about search engines. Literally, don't care at all. I know, that right PR became more reliable, than SE. I even not sure what is written in -head-. If visitors are attracted by PR campaign and they don't see -head- anyway, then why care ? If websites can get enough attention of public from PR campaigns only, then, sooner or later, it will be solely the problem of the SE how they will "read" websites. Imagine how the SERP will look like, when websites developers don't care about SE ) Hm ... interesting )
