Crawling, indexing & ranking :
SEO101 are you saying that users are not customers? Or only people paying or providing something to Google are customers?
Seriously - do you think Google would exist if there wasn't content out there? Aren't all those content places customers?
I don't understand why you fail to see that Google is a REVENUE making company off the sites of others?
I'm not saying Google is EVIL - quite the opposite - I think they are brilliant. But you're acting like Google is doing everyone a FAVOR by providing a beautiful, ethereal free world. It isn't.
Nothing about Google is Free.
You and I will have to just disagree - Google is literally the customer. It gets free content to sell ads on.
Because it takes snapshots and categorizes everything.
It makes money off the work of others. Plain and simple.
