After 4 long years finally, I released an update for WordPress Amazon S3 Plugin. Thanks to Awad Abdelgayoum for inspiring me to blog again. For nearly couple of years, I haven’t been blogging anything interesting or worth reading.
My blog was almost dying due to lack of new content. So while investigating my S3 plugin had stopped working. I searched for alternative and most of it was very complicated or too much for the blog. So I decided to update the plugin and make it work for the newly updated WordPress.
Today I was searching for few keywords which were property and real estate related. Shocked to see most of the top result for the search was an advertisement from property developers.
Half of the result in the page was Adwords campaign of few top real-estate companies in Dubai. Google has made it look like a typical result with a small distinction between paid and actual search result.
As a regular user with average screen size all you will be looking at first glance is the advertisement. Most of the users will not even scroll further to see what is the actual search result.
What happens to people who focus on SEO? Are they f___ked?
Is there any scope for organic SEO? Most of the SEO experts I know already stopped doing SEO and getting certified as SEM experts.
How much money are the companies willing to pay Google? What happens to small business who cannot spend so much money for placing ads with Adwords? Are they f__ked?
Google Web Search has become Google Ad Search. Google has turned so greedy and so evil.
