Once Deemed Evil, Google Now Embraces “Paid Inclusion”

Back when Google was an upstart search engine, one way it distinguished itself was to fight against a pay-to-play business model called “paid inclusion.” Indeed, paid inclusion was one of the original sins Google listed as part of its “Don’t Be Evil” creed. But these days, Google seems comfortable with paid inclusion, raising potential concerns for publishers and searchers alike.

That’s actually a huge deal. I’m very surprised there isn’t more noise about it.

Inspirational speech

It’s always good to listen to this every now and then.

“It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward, that’s how winning is done”.

Who better than Rocky could explain this so eloquently.
