Google Controversies

Google Cookie
The infamous Google cookie

Google have once again hit some big headlines. The context is often a negative one.

In relation to older news

  • Google Toolbar v.4
    No controversy here, but I still abide by my belief that GoogleBar is better, among combination of other tool/searchbars. Google recently began to forbid greedy requests for search results from their Web interface, after years without any such restrictions imposed. Third-party Google toolbars are badly affected by that.
  • Poor Spelling Beats Google’s China Filter
    The censorship of results in China has been discussed to death in the media. It was criticised across the blogsphere while I was away on holiday. Typos have always been a soft spot for search engines. I once noted that typos have SEO potential
