Just watched the videos. They are well worth checking out. Looks a little bit similar to the old authority hub methods.

What I am really surprised at is the low number of links that seem to be required.

You can easily return your inbox to the previous way it looked.

Thing is so many companies feel they can pull wool over people eyes and no one will notice.

Thank you for being ever so vigilant, Steve.

The act of integrity seems to be disappearing from policy on way too many so called good businesses.

The law created by corporations to make profit, period!
How? It just doesn’t matter anymore. Giant companies like Google, doesn’t even have to make profit.

Have more information collected than any other entity on this planet. They going to be in a “censoring business” (just like you realized Steve) next, because they can eliminate any competition this way.

I know you don’t belive in consperacy theories Steve, but that just my opinion and my common sense.
(I grew up in a communist country and I started to get strange feelings in the US since 2001.)

Thanks for this great post Steve!

Ps: May be I’m watching to much Alex Jones channel. :)

I had signed up with a new domain register for a .ie domain, but their emails were not showing up in my inbox. It baffled me at first why nothing was showing up, then I saw the “More” drop down menu with the “All Mail” option. And there they were, along with emails from twitter, pinterest and facebook.
Quite clever filtering, but I’m finding it rather annoying.

Great post Steve! And continue to “name and shame” them.

Comment on Why Google is the WORST Kind of Evil by Giulio Daprela http://theimblueprint.com/google/why-google-is-the-worst-kind-of-evil/#comment-161 Giulio Daprela Sat, 27 Jul 2013 04:24:39 +0000 http://theimblueprint.com/?p=95#comment-161 Hi Kin,
I give you an answer because I’ve read an interesting article recently just about this issue on HubSpot. It seems it’s too early to say whether the open rate will increase or decrease, data are still inconclusive. It seems that someone is seeing an increase while someone else is experiencing a decrease.
They (HubSpot) are not quite negative about the change. In their opinion the new setup will make email marketing more effective because you click on the promotions tab only when you are in the mindset of looking at promotions. On the other side the competition will be higher because your email will be packed with dozens of other promotions, and only the most engaging companies will survive in the long run.

I also noticed the “problem” of the Google promotions disguised as emails. Here in my opinion we fall in the same problem of the ads in the organic results put above the fold and with a liiiight pink background that in my laptop it’s hard to notice, so that you believe they are actually results of your search and not ads.

I also think that these continuous big updates are made by purpose, and not really to improve search results, but to make the organic results unpredictable, so that if you want traffic you are forced to buy ads. So, I expect a big update every year that with some excuse will shake the Google rankings. Do you really think that only the evil SEOers have been and will be hit?

Please Steve, since when do you believe a word of what marketers are saying :-p

Just don’t piss them off too much, could affect our keywordblaze big time.

And of course, if you find a better alternative than what they offer, please do! At least other companies aren’t that known from using any trick in the book for spying on you. Using Google email? Might as well give them my phone and put their camera’s in my house :-)

As for the “evil Google email ads” you describe, I haven’t had a single one in my own inbox.
