Agus Nizami commented on Google AdSense Publishers Analyze GOOG Earnings Showing Decline In Publisher Earnings
For 1000 pageviews/day, I get US$ 0.11 in Google Adsense. It's not good enough for a living. US$ 3 a month? I suggest try bidvertiser.com and revenuehits though their ads a little bit annoying. But they pay more. Try also direct ads and sell your own product through your websites.

Geez! All he said was it isn't a good idea. It's not like Google got the gov to pass a law against it or something.

Deanna Patrick commented on Problems With Your Google Maps Listing? Call Google.
I got my business listed on Google Maps about a year ago, occasionally I check it, this past Sunday morning was one of those occasions. Someone edited my phone number to a disconnected number and removed my days and hours of operation. I have no idea how long its been this way, several months I'm guessing. There is only one other Mobile Dog Groomer listed with Maps in my area, so its an easy guess at who did it. I went in and edited it back, along with hours and days. Also posting pictures of myself, my Logo, phone number and website. All of the edits EXCEPT for my phone number have been changed and added. It still reads pending review. Why?? All you have to do is see that I'm returning it to my original listed number, and you accepted my photos, and can see that everything matches up.. why the delay.. and why werent you this careful when someone edited it incorrectly in an attempt to sabotage my business??? I never received so much as an email. Please return my phone number to the correct number.

Isaul commented on Google: It's Not The Best Idea To Build Web Sites On Public Data
Recently I Googled a vodka cocktail and the answer was in their 'knowledge card' format. I don't think there's public data (as in official) for that type of query. So apparently their knowledge graph seems to be working on recipes too. Public data has a blurry definition with a very broad scope. So I imagine by 'public data' they may mean "data aggregation and categorisation from multiple relevant-quality-sources".

Chris Hibbert commented on Google Maps To Discontinue Manual Verification Process
I have spent literally hours on the phone working to get my clients a GMB account. The main issue is that clients either do not communicate that they have received the post card, or they do not receive it at all. As an AdWords advertiser, I completely understand why Google are raising the barriers. Having said all of that, the quality of help from Google's Indian call centre (that is where my calls go in any case) is generally low. They follow scripts and any deviation just encourages them to repeat the last sentence over and over until you lose your cool or the will to live. Then there are the nuances of GMB accounts; make certain changes within three days of verification and you are back to square one with another verification required. So in conclusion, the process is frustrating, but if it helps to stop the bogus GMB accounts then we have to accept it. But Google, you need to make this process better!

... or to push you out completely when they later decide to compete with your offering... There is a whole lot more to anti-trust law than your very slanted redux allows for.

Finally, you touched this subject... we need more information on this, one of the most stupid internet laws ever created... Most people here in America haven't done anything because this is like a more European thing... more information about this thing would be appreciated.

Spamboden commented on Google: It's Not The Best Idea To Build Web Sites On Public Data
I wonder how much of the knowledge graph, AdWords extensions and extra ads google are adding to the serps recently is fuelling the ad blocking industry. Too much clutter Google, you are risking your main income source by pushing this crap to hard, less is more.

Ralph Slate commented on Google: It's Not The Best Idea To Build Web Sites On Public Data
Most factual data is public, and few informational websites truly break new ground in data creation. The key is in the compilation, organization and presentation of that data. Google appears to be flexing its muscles here, because they know they are building their knowledge graphs from other people's sites! Sounds like they now want to discredit the sites they used to build their knowledge graph and declare themselves the ultimate reference.

I just typed out 3 ways that came to mind. Then I realized you might be a scraper - so I deleted that response - figured I'd let you think some more about it. =)

Tom Binga commented on Google: It's Not The Best Idea To Build Web Sites On Public Data
I agree with this 100%. Nobody should just be displaying the data, but actually using it to make useful apps, whether its browser-based or mobile. It's also very frustrating when you're trying to do a citation cleanup and all of these websites exist with no mention of where the data is coming from. I work in the higher education space and there is 1000s upon 1000s of these directory sites with old, outdated info and no way to clean it up.

Bravo "Anon", a wonderful, mature response. The name calling at the end nails it.

Did I miss the part where Google took control of all web hosts and removed websites or something? You can build any website you like. Just don't expect Google to help you or even show your site in search results if you don't want to follow their rules, no matter how whimsical or just wrong they may seem.

Are they saying, if you are the account holder of AdSense or if you have a site that has AdSense placed on the site? Could this be why GoogleAdServices.com has been blocked by smart phones like crazy (on our site, anyway)?

Well... I would like to create an issue with that... and accentuate the "something more." What if you create the public data in such a way that qualifies it as Skyscraper Technique content? (bigger, faster, stronger). Then it will be useful content and therefore highly linkable. I get the point of the post... just blogging the same ol' same ol' in hopes of attracting visitors is not as good. But a website that was purchased and rebranded (chicago crime dot org) took Chicago crime data and integrated with Google maps, so you could search all the crimes in the last 2 weeks for any geo location type in the city of Chicago. Rebranded under EveryBlock and mistakenly hidden in that website. Or my buddy's site that has the best designed and easily usable contact info for all of Congress and Senate with pictures + letter templates to communicate with our elected politicians, etc. It is highly linkable, yet the public data exists in different places. Just saying.. Make it different, make it better, make it usable and fast.

The popups don't have to look bad, that's up to the designer, surely? We have had cookie consent popups on our client's sites for years and they have never caused a problem or 'scared anyone off'...

There are LOTS of laws in place that google just happily ignores. Fraud scrappers seem to be a partner of google but the law is clear on fraud. Google though instead of sending letters out intimidating the scrappers it rewards the scrappers by making sure they outrank the original source of the content in many circumstances. This is just one of many laws that google chooses to ignore so please don't come over so naive as it make you look like you are about 12 when you are probably more like 17.

Learn to read... bulletproof against valueless SEOs who are only in the business to collect lots of retainers... you should be ashamed of yourself.

It sounds like Google is going Wikipedia on us not business friendly / ecommerce - There is no room for emotions or psychology as in marketing, just believed facts given by what "Google has deemed as an authority".

I don't recall trying to steal your business. As for being "bulletproof", why don't you openly tease the Google Web spam team and see how far that goes. Your technical knowledge of the mechanics of pushing out content and links is probably adequate. But when it comes to explaining all this stuff you are a fish out of water.
