    Do you think Google Sucks? Why/why not?

    [BTW, I get my fair share of traffic from Google; that's not why I'm asking. But feel free to justify yourself by saying that Googl should give you traffic and it doesn't.]

    I voted No, i.e., I don't think that Google sucks but at the same time I don't think that they rock either. They make a good search engine and their advertising programs are top of the line but most eveything else they do is not that exciting. I use gmail every now and then but I am not a big fan. Google video and reader are not that much better than other offerings and Google analytics could sure be improved.

    So, I don't think that they suck but they sure do not rock my world.

    No, because Google is one of the best SEs for me. I rely on Google because it shows quality websites.

    Your answers about Google not sucking but rocking are all pretty justified, IMHO, but now that I'm not likely to influence the voting, I thought I'd say why I think Google sucks..
    First, their algorithm is messed up with too much weight on authority domains. You've now got hackers planting pages on .edus (with xss attacks, if I'm not mistaken - not a coder, so you'll forgive my sucky knowledge).
    Second, their support is often lazy - how many times have you guys gotten answers that were FAQ copy-pasted? I mean thanks Googl, I can read your suck-ass FAQ myself.
    Third, their massive stockpiling of personal data scares the bejeezus outa me. All the searches you've done, the emails you write... all that shit is more demographic data to crunch on for the big mean Google machine.
    You guys can check my sig (or not) for more, but IMHO, Google sucks t3h ma$$ive sux0r.

    you guys don't think it would be better if google had less market share?

    I mean it would nice to rank sites a little quicker wouldn't it?

    It would nice to not have sites sent to the supplemental index for no real apparent reason, except not having the money to buy high PR links, wouldn't it?

    I believe Google has done much nice useful services for people and changed search quite much, but as they are leaders in market, they are becoming lazy and not so flexible as before.

    Overall, I would say that Google rocks, but I hope they will get more competition and will have to do much more things for users in future.

    I sorta feel that point I mean nobody knows the extent of what is possible with all the data they can collect. I could see it being possible for them to serve you ads for stuff they know you'll have a 50% (or greater) chance of buying, which is scary. I see this point as more of a reason to support competition though not as a thing that sucks about google.
