You may have heard of Google Watch, a site which, to put it bluntly, slags off Google because of the way it ranks pages and how it obtains and stores information about its users. I’d always assumed it was set up by a disgruntled webmaster who couldn’t get his pages to rank highly on Google, and instead of changing his site believed that it was Google who was to blame for this.
My theory has been proved by Google Watch Watch, a site which brings some truth into the equation. It explains the background behind Google Watch, and why its existence is generally unjustified. A good, if a little lengthy read for anyone interested in the web’s favourite search engine.
