[…] Nofollow und kein Ende. Nun gibts auch noch eine kleine Arbeitserleichterung für mich. Links auf Wikipedia-Artikel muß ich das Nofollow nun nicht mehr manuell verpassen, da es ein entsprechendes WordPress Plugin dafür gibt 😉 Hier gibts den Download des WordPress Plugins, auf welches mich ein Trackback von alleswasbewegt.de bei mir aufmerksam gemacht hat. Dann hat Perun ein Thema aufgegriffen, welches mich auch schon länger irritiert – warum benutzen einige Spammer eigentlich (auch) Nofollow-Links? Ick wes es nich – werde jetzt aber doch gleich jetzt mal einen kleinen eigenen Test starten, um herauszubekommen, wie Google das Nofollow nun tatsächlich wertet, da es auch dazu unterschiedlichste Aussagen gibt. Siehe die konträren Ergebnisse bei Nofollow=Nocomment, Link in Nachtrag 4 & der Link im Kommentar von “der Klempner”. Ergebnis meines kleinen Tests folgt die kommenden Tage … Ojeoje, und beinahe vergessen & vielleicht schon zu spät – Tadeusz hat freundlicherweise einen meiner Nofollow Artikel geyigged, damit sich eventuell noch ein paar weitere Leser durch meine argumentativen No-Nofollow Textwüsten durchkämpfen. Wäre schön, wenn ihr für meinen No-Nofollow Artikel einfach mal mityigged (wat ein beklopptes Wort ;-)), wenn euch das Thema am Herzen liegt – ist ja schließlich keine Adsense-Klickaufforderung … Danke für die Social Media Optimization (also called SMO) Anregung per Kommentar an Tadeusz, habe ich in der Form bisher “gar nix mit am Hut” & bin neugierig, ob und was es im deutschen Sprachraum bringt? DamitÂ´s hier nicht zu ernsthaft wird, noch ein zum Nofollow-Thema passender SEO Cartoon, wo Matt Cutts als “Web Dominatrix” dargestellt ist – sehr schick 😉 Abschließend noch der Hinweis darauf, daß mit ner ähnlichen Idee, wie meiner Kategorie Googlevil zugrunde liegt, nun unter gevil.org ein neues Blog-Projekt gelauncht wurde, welches auch die “dark side of Google” hinterleuchten will – good luck to you … […]
Everyone knows google is the root of all gevil. er. Evil.
Pagerank sux. But shh. don’t tell google I said that.
[…] Google Alternatives […]
[…] Help Out! […]
This would hurt themselves. If Google helps improve the organic index position of their advertisers then they’d no longer need to buy sponsored ads.
[…] Gevil reports interesting possible user profiling within Gmail, and not the kind you might expect […]
[…] The Future of Google […]
If you read 1984, you would understand we are very far from that type of reality. Parallels can be drawn, but the truth is 1984 was much worse than anything happening now.
Chilling indeed. I use Gmail and had no idea that they had this type of hole in their system. I hope that it is patched quickly or I’ll have to look at other options…again!
What are the chances that this was an HTML e-mail and somehow, keywords that would trigger these kinds of advertisements were embedded in it?
It doesn’t sound very probable, I’m sure, especially considering the topic in question. But when you weigh it against the chance of a corporation like Google disclosing personal information of this magnitude, in a way that doesn’t even make sense as a business tactic/move — I, at least, would check that e-mail again.
Patrick, I would be inclined to agree with you if it weren’t for the fact that AOL recently released detailed search history of thousands of people.
Here’s a link to the story:
The email contained a link only http://herbalcom.com
No hidden text, java, or imbedded links.
I think we should ask friends to experiment with this issue. Ask a friend to send a link only email, without any other text. Have it sent on a topic that your friend has no interest in. Then look at the Gmail ads.
Remember, this was a Yahoo email to a Gmail email account.
Well it explains why if I search for something with google ads usually popup relating to that in Gmail regardless of whether I have an email on that subject or not!
Well google are bigtime data collectors when they took out the desktop search it almost showed their long term plab if you have ever used google desktop be sure every files you have is being inxed in a google server located somewhere in the servers in some country which does not have any sort of digital laws..but hey they provide stuff for free and fast who cares? or do we?
did you google his yahoo email address? I bet he posts on some illuminati message boards and the ad sense used his email address just like it does any other text. If that is “mostly what he visits” I bet his email address is listed on some of those sites and that’s why that came up.
No, but it appears that email data mining is already underway. If they can do it with a court order, it is already being done.
Look at the 4th paragraph in this article just sent to me. http://news.zdnet.com/2102-9595_22-6154457.html
I will se if I can Google his email and get back too you.
Editor’s Note: You might need to copy and paste the link into your browser.
Google is an advertising company. They have access to everything on the internet via thier search technology. If Bob is a ranting conspiacy nut that blogs all over the internet and the e-mail has no other marketable ad words then I am sure it will turn up. And really bob should start his own e-mail server on his own internet if he does not want people poking around his account. This is not 1984. Google is an outstanding american company.
Gabrial, you don’t have a problem with Google using their search data for profiling, advertising, and who knows what else?
Even if you don’t care about the ads being shown in emails, isn’t it a VERY slippery slope to be heading down?
We’re providing these companies (not just Google) with some of the most valuable information possible, and we’re not requiring any regulations, or requiring any accountability. This is actually going to be the subject of a post quite soon.
And, to say “if you don’t like it, make your own internet” is just asinine.
I went ahead and Googled his email. Google say’s “did not match any documents.”
So I just called him and asked him if he was a member of any forum that was conspiracy related. Did he join or give his email to any message board? He said he is not and he was very private in his research. He is very protective of his email address.

Everyone seems to recognize Google as the electronic/informational Wal*Mart. Effing scary. Let’s hope Pinki has it in her to change the world.
I thought the video was really well done, if not just a bit over the top… but am I the only one who sees the irony in posting it using youtube? There are a host of other free video hosting sites out there that are not owned by google!
Not only the posting on youtube is a bit ironic, but if you look at the source of the page you see that he is using google analytics as well……If google is so evil why use all their services?
For most things there are a host of good alternatives available (statcounter, zippyvideos, etc etc etc)
I do not care what services anyone uses or what his or her personal opinions about anything are but putting up an active campaign against a corporation but still using a lot of their services is just a bit hypocritical imho.
Just my $0.02
Yeah, there certainly are a lot of Google Alternatives.
I try to use as many Google services as possible, but when it comes to site statistics, I use as many as I can. If/when MSN comes out with their analytics program, I’ll probably replace google’s but until then…
btw, it is a good movie 🙂 I did enjoy it.
When MSN comes out with something like that i bet there will be millions of people complaining about MS doing that for the same reasons as you are telling that google ‘might’ be doing 😉
What I do not understand is that when it comes to google everyone seems to immediately find everything great and wonderful and when MS does something it is immediately a threat and evil and monopolistic and ….. so on.
Google seems not to be able to do anything wrong and MS seems not to be able to do anything right.
time for bed now 🙂
surley any emailing service or ISP could read your email if they wanted too, just because the text in an email is scanned doesn’t mean it’s being stored anywhere.

I remember reading a news story sometime last year regarding the government and its request that all of the major search engines hand over years worth of search queries submitted by users.
All of them gave in: MSN, Yahoo, and AOL, and many others. However, Google stood their ground and said NO.
In fact, I just performed a search query and came up with several results:
AOL may have released their records, but AOL isn’t Google and it never will be! You can’t predict the behavior of one organization based on another. Google and AOL obviously have different standards of ethics, and the two are in no way related.
I don’t believe Google is the demon that you claim it is. Their leadership has stood by the privacy of their users, and I will continue to support them. I may even apply for a position at one of their new offices!
James, Google did indeed stand their ground in that instance, however, they’ve since turned over records to the government several times. They have cooperated with our government and have agreed to censor their results due to the demands of the Chinese government.
These are not the actions of a company I want to entrust my data to.
I do not know how to contact you
but google Blogger has blocked my blog
when you go to my site and scroll down… you will see everything has been blackened and you are not able to click on links on the original posts…
i think it is due to my recent posts (especially) and the solution i realized for world peace (even though it aint a new solution)
60s movement + Nonviolent Movement + 1 God Alone =
Love + Nonviolence + 1 God Alone =
so i posted this on my technorati WTF about Free speech, technorati, facebook and now google tryin to block my words…
my technorati profile:
This site is crap
site is crap
Come now… Google may be greedy, full of it, and perhaps the root of all evil but their site is hardly crap… 😀
My favorite part about this is that the guy used a fbi.gov email address. Like it’s supposed to impress me or scare me or something…
[…] Especially when Google got busted selling PageRank on their own site. And Google recently purchased DoubleClick which own Performics which is an SEO company who purchases paid links. […]
One thing this guy is wrong about: Pagerank is for determining link popularity not relevancy. A page’s rank is a number between 1 and 10, that has nothing to do with search term relevancy.
[…] Just testing something […]
Google is EVIL!
yeah they are! (still testing stuff)
LOL, google evil, but you use YouTube
im starting a campaign to ship them to north korea or china where they will fit in perfectly.
[…] Just been reading an intresting article from BloggingExperiment.com on the reasons why he does not use Google Adsense. To be honest he does have a very good valid arugment (and he had been banned as well). As mentioned in my other post about my total earnings todate http://www.wypov.com/2007/10/31/149/ my Google Adsense totalled = $3.22. I am also using AdBrite and I am now getting a higher click price in relation to the amount of time I have been using them. I am going to replace Google Adsense with AdBrite from now on and I will momitor the difference. Within the artile is also a link to a the Geveil.org website on what to use as alternatives to Google products and services. […]
[…] Google Alternatives Part 2 I just found the answer to my own question about alternatives to Google. Gevil.org, one of my new favorite blogs, has a big honkin’ list of Google Alternatives. There are other places to search, get email, blog, and do anything else that you’ve been doing with Google. They may not all be concentrated in the same place, but many of the sites offer multiple services. […]
Someone else who shares my own thoughts on google.
To me, google is basically saying, “So, you want to advertise on peoples blogs and other sites eh ? Well fine, you can, but not if its going to help your ranking !!” . . Google is basically forcing people to resort to ‘white hat seo’ which of course, will never, EVER, get you to page 1 for ‘Car insurance’, and instead, pay £5.90 per click on Google Adwords.
A complete and utter joke. The only thing the web community can do is completly go against google and basically say back to google “No were not going to do what you tell us to, if you want to change things, then work for us, not getting us to do your work for you”.
No no gevil, their site is crap.
They talk about web standards and this and that, yet their site never actually validates w3c validator.
Please don’t hate me. I’m just doing my job.
Ofcourse, google is collecting data not only from google toolbar, serps and analytics.. I thinl Adsense is used too.
We already wrote some parameters to use it in SeoQuake (FireFox seo plugin), so you can see all Gtrends data just in SERP or visiting site. (looks like alexa toolbar). You can get it (edit: via clicking on the commentor’s name)
Regardless of whatever reason they give, its still shady. They have gotten thousands of site owners to give up their info…
..they are afraid of hurting thier trillion dollar market cap? ha ha
i told everyone they were fraid!
Google and Yahoo have come up with new and very similar plans to respond to the challenge from MySpace and Facebook: They hope to turn their e-mail systems and personalized home page services (iGoogle and MyYahoo) into social networks.
*Ahem* I believe you missed the follow up:
You can put down the bag of cookies now…
karma, Google was only looking out for their own interest, not the privacy issue. They wanted to prevent Viacom from seeing whether Google employees uploaded illegal content.
However, just because they came to an agreement doesn’t mean that the ruling didn’t happen or that it couldn’t happen again. The issue is still very much prevalent.
No, i think it should rather read: “Hey Jerry, listen to what we read today on gevil.org” “STOP IT, I CANNOT HEAR ANY MORE OF THAT SHIT”
youtube is the world’s biggest garbage dump. if you use it, be expected to be treated like garbage.
NEW YORK — A judge has tentatively approved a settlement of lawsuits between Google and book authors and publishers that may put millions of out-of-print texts online. The settlement was announced by Google and the publishing industry in
we need a special committee just to keep an eye on them, seriously!
Hi, I was wondering if you would mind leaving me a snail mail address. I’d like to send you a tinfoil hat.
