Google got power hungry, decided they knew better than the peons who used their service. You can find more complete search results on Bing and Duck Duck Go than on Google's censored site. Of course if you prefer living in your echo chamber....

Either you're in for the free market capitalism, or you're not. You want to be able to dictate and control over a non-government entity, whatever the reason? Welcome to the dark side. Cookies are on the table beside the coffee.

This is why so many whistleblowers are blowing the whistle! They are alarmed by what they see in their own companies. Google seems to admire the Communist Chinese model of social control

Bing, Yahoo!, DuckDuckGo and many others find your lack of faith disturbing...

Fine, let them blow the whistle. If it's legit it needs to be acted on. But I haven't seen anything that says that Google broke any laws.

There's no monopoly. If there was, I couldn't use Bing or Go Duck Go for my search engines. Or Yahoo!, or AOL, or Ask, or all the others. They are all competing, and they are all surviving, so there's no monopoly!

If Google has protections, so do they all.

There's your top 3.

Very little difference, if at all.

I don't think you understand how search engines function, or especially SEO.

I can prove right now that google does manipulate the algorithms . Go to google and request "show me a picture of a white man and a white woman" then see what is shown...It works when you ask for dog pictures so whats up with this?
