RIPON, CALIFORNIA -- I wish to remove Google as my search engine. Reason being is that Google has completed research on customers without their knowledge or permission. I resent this secret gathering of information and no longer wish to be associated with Google. This request is impossible to accomplish by contacting Google online. This conduct is what one would expect from a subversive organization.
I downloaded tons of music, spent lots of money only to know that you can't play it. It's not yours. You have to be connected to the internet to listen to the music you paid for. WHAT A RIP OFF!! I can listen to it for free if that's the case so why are they charging? NEVER BUY MUSIC FROM GOOGLE PLAY!
CALIFORNIA -- I saw the popup on my home page, even some person here in my home town. (I wish I had written down his name or called to see if he really exists.) I contacted Google for information and was charge $2.79. Of course there were multiple pages of fine print, now called terms of agreement, thinking Google a reputable company I paid little attention. This month I found a charge of 81 dollars plus change to my account by a company Financial Success Kit online. I've recently learned that they have multiple addresses and represent almost every scam going. I intend to keep pursuing this as far as possible. Incidentally I find that Google has 1497 complaints listed.
We are all for free speech, but many blogs have and do cross the line. The way we are to report abuse on a Google blog gives many people who cannot afford a lawyer. Unlike Yahoo and Myspace who will listen to complaints of cyber-bullying and in most cases take action, Google & Blogger will not. Cyber-bullying has become bigger as most of the perpetrators know that Google and Blogger will not do anything to remove malicious content. I speak from personal experience after having my personal information posted by a stalker and reported it 3 times Google has taken NO Action. Maybe it is time to hit Google in their large wallet and their sponsors.
My hats off to MySpace and Yahoo for stepping up. Shame on Google and their weak policies. The malicious comments from hateful blogs will remain in Google searches for a very long time. This can and will effect people trying to get a job.
Any Business notifying Google of Copyright Infringement please be advised of the following! We have a fabricated Rip Off Report Complaint that was 29th position on page 2 on Google under our keyword search for our business name.
We notified Google of Copyright Infringement and demanded removal of the Rip Off Report listing from their browser. THE FOLLOWING OCCURRED IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING GOOGLES RECEIPT OF OUR INFRINGEMENT NOTICE! 1) We watched the Rip Off Report listing rapidly move up from 29th to 7th position and the following day to 3rd position. Our active websites held the no 1 and no 2 position under our business name as keyword search.
2) Within 24 hours Google removed our web site listings which held the 1st and 2nd position which moved Rip Off Report into the 1st position 1st page now. ALL THIS WITHIN 36 HOURS AFTER WE NOTIFIED GOOGLE OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT REGARDING A FRAUDULENT RIP OFF REPORT POSTING!
This is unheard of and even we cannot believe Google Abuse and Legal department would allow their employees to do this. We are contacting every major newspaper and news program to feed them this story. Google will punish a business for demanding removal of Rip Off Report listing on their browser and worsen it but rapidly moving said posting into the first position immediately on you!!
Do Not Trust Google and think for a second that they are there to help you resolve false postings from Rip Off Report. Google will screw you immediately and punish you for taking them on with Infringement notification and demand for removal of a Rip Off Report Posting.
This is 100% factual and keep in mind this all occurred within 36 hours of our demand for removal of Rip Off Report posting under digital millennium copyright infringement notice sent to Google. This is evil, wrong in every sense of the word and Google clearly aligns itself with a convicted felon who writes his own complaints against companies for extortion attempts. This is very sad and a wake up call to all who believe Google as huge as they are will do the right thing on the side or what is right and what is wrong.
HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT -- This is not complicated. The Google search engine is clearly biased toward certain spellings of given and surnames. Thus, it blocks searches to names that involve variations -- it's as if people with any variations in the spelling of their names DO NOT EXIST. This is an entirely predictable defect and more than an inaccuracy or an error; in the age of online social networking, it's unethical. (e.g., is Google receiving money to give some names access and by default, blocking other names?)
Every time I look up something on Google, I'll type in for example 2000 Buick climate control. I get put on sites that have nothing to do with what I'm looking for. If I want to print coloring pages for my grandkids, I get sent all over kingdom come but not to a site that I can download. It is frustrating to say the least.
The search engine is currently changing the wording on my search line to coincide with whatever is someone else's current interests. It is like driving a car with no steering wheel. I can stop and put it in reverse and delete what Google has added, but the words return along with the page. I can just go down the page until I find or don't find what I am looking for, or I can add extra words to fill the spot and do the same. Why use an annoying addition to the search experience?
