Crawling, indexing & ranking
The update is sorta like what happens when animals eat their young. Google ate their blogspot users. Not just me but everyone that works in my office. That is just one office in one city. I cant begin to imagine how many others. All of that hard work and years of blogging is currently rendered useless. Blogger is currently ranked 6th at alexa but I am willing to put my money down in vegas they wont be by years end. Especially if they can be blocked by net surfers.
Now for the reasonable fair portion of my comment. I can see why Google would try new things with all of the spammers selling every piece of garbage they can get their greedy paws on. But I still see zazzle, cafepress, squidoo and many others like them that are still and always have been at the top with their exaggerated URLs. Curious to what makes them so special.
