WHY YOU NEED TO STOP USING GOOGLE | How Google monopoly threatens everything | #don’tbeevil


In this video I’m going to analyze Google’s
business model history and market strategy. I’ll explain why I think you need to stop
using Google and that ditching Google’s services will improve your situation. This suggestion doesn’t apply to small businesses
which simply cannot choose to opt-out of the world’s monopoly “search” engine. Not using Google services as a business is
a financial suicide. As a user, however, Google does you more harm
than good as its aggressive abuse of search monopoly motivates the company to sacrifice
quality of relevant search results for money generating relevant advertising. I am going to demonstrate how through various
practices of search manipulation everything Google shows you is advertisement bubble to
sell you clicks, downloads, and purchases, and why that’s a problem in the Information
Age. Google entered the realm of world wide web
as a gateway to the Internet. Similarly to the Internet Service Providers
giving people connection via Internet access, Google was giving people that essential connection
from their home devices to websites from the entire global network. Google wasn’t the first search engine in
the world, but without it looking for content on the Internet was slow, complicated, and
nothing close to neutral or relevant. It had an advantage that allowed it to quickly
overcome its competitors and turn into a tech giant within few years. In 2004 co-founder of Google Lary Page criticized
other search engines for prioritizing their own content rather than relevant search results. Quoting Larry: “Most portals show their
own content above content elsewhere on the web. We feel that’s a conflict of interest, analogous
to taking money for search results. Their search engine doesn’t necessarily
provide the best results; it provides the portal’s results. Google conscientiously tries to stay away
from that. We want to get you out of Google and to the
right place as fast as possible. It’s a very different model.” Fast forward today, Google has faced multiple
antitrust charges for abusing its search monopoly power to eliminate competition and promote
its own content and services irrespective of merit. More than 30 companies filed public complaints
leading to legal proceedings in the European Union, India, Russia, and the United States. Google has been found guilty for proactively
casting burdens on competition to Android Operating System, Google’s own services
such as Google Search, Google Shopping, Google Maps, Google Product Search, and manipulation
of general search without transparently informing users. The resulting verdict was $2.7 billion fine
for abusing search monopoly domination. Google’s position has shifted from “search
result generator” in the early 2000s to “content provider and aggregator” today. Google’s practices have been deemed to have
negative impact on consumers and innovation and with their coming efforts to become a
global Internet Service Provider, their history of monopoly abuses is going to become a major
concern for the Information Age. In his book The New Digital World, Eric Shmidt
in 2013 described Google as “Almost nothing short of a biological virus [that] can spread
as quickly, efficiently or aggressively as these technology platforms, and this makes
the people who build, control, and use them powerful too.” What happened to Google that used to shape
the Internet and help websites to get discovered? What made Google change from conscientious
portal to the world wide web, to a quick, efficient and aggressive virus? In the year 2000 Google started monetizing
its platform by launching a self-service search-advertising programme we know as AdWords that charged
advertisers on cost-per-impression (CPM) basis. Advertisers where paying for each appearance
of their ads no matter if a user clicked on it or not. Two years later this model was replaced by
cost-per-click charging scheme, which precisely means taking money for showing content. Another three years later and Google implemented
“Universal Search” that bridged all categories of search into one stream of results, essentially
allowing Google to start inserting links to their own content and services. The goal quickly transitioned from getting
people out of Google to make them stay on their websites as long as possible. Why? Simple answer – data. Google realized the more information it can
get from its users, the further it can expand its advertising business model. The quality of search became irrelevant. From 2007, Google decides what appears in
your search results not based on your search queries or merits of the content you are looking
for, but based on the economic interests of one the greatest conglomerates in the world. From this day forth, Google is no longer the
search engine it was originally created to be. The only problem Google had was that it was
never really innovative enough. It couldn’t come up with services that could
succeed against existing competition, even with the monopoly of search engine. Thus, it started with a massive chain acquisitions. One by one, Google merged with other companies
based on strategic importance. From Applied Semantics it acquired AdSense,
and from Overture it got AdWords. ZipDash made it into Google Maps, Neotonic
Software morphed into Gmail and Google Groups, Marratech was incorporated into Google Talk
and Hangouts. There are 163 mergers and acquisitions that
all fall under the single umbrella of Alphabet. None of these are just services on their own. They are tracking outposts. The more web content Google acquires, the
wider range of data its dragnet can collect. The ace up in Google’s sleeve, however,
is that Google helps to run up to 85% of all known websites with Google Analytics and similar
web services acquired from Urchin in 2005. Boosting its marketing solutions offered to
businesses, Google managed to spread its tentacles all across the Internet to collect more data
even from users that don’t use Google products. The obsession with data at Google has no limit. Even if you go offline, Google is developing
capability to track your purchases in physical stores that you might have made because you
saw an ad on your phone or laptop. The reason why this is so important is because
Google no longer brings you relevant search results, but relevant advertisements. Google has switched its position from a service
you use to be able to make you a product that Google sells. Nothing that you ever search using Google
can be trusted as an objective generation of results. Google chooses what to show you way before
you hit “enter”. It no longer provides you with the best results. It provides you with Google’s results. This is extremely important whether you look
for current news events, or just making ordinary shopping research to save some money. And if that wasn’t enough, Google will filter
which websites will appear and which won’t even if you directly look for them stemming
from their current political persuasion. For example, the “search” giant took a
stance of champion fighting against extremism. You might think that it is noble that a private
company devotes its own resources to a public cause. But is it really? Unlike government, private corporation doesn’t
have a system of checks and balances. Business is checked by free market, but what
if it’s no longer free after it was hijacked by a single conglomerate? Who decides and on what basis what is and
isn’t extremist or worth filtering? At which point is Google trying to be so polite
that it won’t show what’s important? Like these search queries that won’t suggest
you anything incriminating about any politician or personality ever if you search them on
Google versus on DuckDuckGo or Yahoo. This is no longer a debate of whether Google
can or can’t do this as a private company. This is about you, the user of the Internet
developed by scientists from all around the world. You the user, who is being tricked and manipulated
by big data analyses on daily basis. There were times when Microsoft used to ridicule
and criticize Google for their advertisement-based business model. Until they realized that this where the money
flows and they’d better learn to do it as well. So now instead of having a remastered version
Windows 7, which is the best operating system Microsoft ever produced, we have Windows 10
that’s riddled with targeted advertisements and invasive tracking policies. Google set a precedence for all tech start-ups
whatever their product is, the only way to become dominant is to make their consumers
data generating hot spots. Market diversity is just as important as biodiversity. If one species take over, one way of life
becomes more dominant than others to the point its mere presence becomes a threat to other
species and the whole ecosystem. Google is a threat to other companies and
business models. Not because they are big and successful, but
because how they got there and what they with this position. The new goal of tech corporations is not to
become the best in their field, but to be the only one on the market. Creating a clever product that everybody wants
is the hard way to do it. Patenting, pricing out, merging and licensing
your competition is the one that will grant you protectionism of the state which smaller
businesses don’t have the luxury to have. Google does have alternatives, but it doesn’t
have a competition. Meaning you as a user can choose other products
of other companies, but as a small business, if you don’t get along with Google, you
don’t exist. And because we all depend on this ecosystem,
we are subject to the dominant monopoly of Google. This video is uploaded to Google’s servers,
because Youtube is the second largest search engine. If it wasn’t on Youtube, this video wouldn’t
exist. I could have posted it to Facebook, but there
is no difference in their business models anyway. Other video sharing websites pale in comparison
to Youtube. Small to medium size businesses simply cannot
choose to opt-out from Google and that’s a dangerous situation. Facebook is no longer just a social network,
Microsoft Windows is no longer just an operating system, Google isn’t just a search engine
anymore. They are data generating digital marketing
aggregators. If you feel like Google is not living up to
your standards, you need to know there are plenty of Google alternatives that you as
a user can choose from. As my default search engine, I use DuckDuckGo
which has nice user interface and doesn’t track your search at all. For web browser, I always go for Firefox,
which is developed to respect your digital freedoms without intrusive policies. If you want something more lightweight, I
highly recommend Brave which blocks all trackers by default. If you decide to give Firefox a go, install
uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger to block social media trackers, including Google targeted
advertisements. For email, my favorite is Protonmail, which
gives you state-of-the art user experience on top of true end-to-end encryption for best
security and privacy. There are other similar options if violet
is not your color. If you keep your identity separate from your
browsing, you can prevent from connecting the dots. You can use Tor or simply any other web browser
with no history just for your online accounts. And then use Firefox or Brave for day to day
browsing. There’s infinite amount of possibilities
and I am going to cover some the best ways in the near future on my channel. The less opportunities you give Google to
track you, the more objectively and neutrally exposed you’ll be to web content. You’ll jailbreak from the bubble that Google
created around what its algorithms told them would sell you the most. If you want relevant search results based
on your queries and merit of the web content, and not your browsing history, private emails,
you should at least know that Google is not the place to go to. You are free to make your own choice. But I think economic diversity and protection
of our digital privacy are two crucial pillars on which a free and successful society should
be based on. And that’s why you need to stop using Google.

  2. Google is boosting left wing agenda and censoring right wingers to meddle with the elections fuck day shit I'm switching to duckduckgo

  3. i will stop using GOOGLES, GOOGLES IS A ABUSER, HUMANITY SHOULD RUN AWAY FROM GOOGLES.

  4. First, get off of the YT mobile app. Next, get firefox for pc or mobile, (NOT CHROME!) make it your default browser, and get the following ad ons: UBlock origin, (BEST ad/pop up blocker) Disconnect, (Stops Tracking) HTTPS Everywhere, (Prevents Mirror sites) Enhancer for YT, (Makes YT Great Again!). Then, switch your default search engine to Duck Duck Go. By NOT using their search engines, receiving overly-annoying ads, or allowing them to track your activity, it tells YT "NOW YOU'RE DEMONETIZED!!!" Thumbs up if you agree.

  5. I was already using duckduckgo, but after watching this I installed Brave browser and I'm loving it!
    Light, fast, Adblock included, and Youtube and other streaming sites work perfectly!
    Next step: Linux.

  6. Hey can you make a video on how advertisement can affect a normal persons day to day life and how it affects a society as a whole ?

  7. Google is really evil …it didn't allow to Google apps to be created for Windows phone and killed the platform …

  8. Why are you people so naive? even if you find a way to get away of google..that a BIG IF. Your isp providers still buy Ethernet from google or a company that belongs to google. If you don't want to be tracked either leave the electronics or use someone else account.

  9. One thing that I can’t understand… If you posted this on Google’s servers, and you’re ratting them out, why haven’t they removed your video? I would think they would…

  10. Google has been evil since early days. When they took over the Usenet newsgroups they stopped sharing to independent servers and eventually all newsgroup messages only existed on their servers then they cut off editing and deleting messages

    Now you can’t have an independent email server that properly functions and isn’t listed as a spam server unless you verify your email server through google- who the F*** made google the admin of email services.

    Google is evil !!! It needs to be dismantled and it’s code deleted and restore only its very early search engine ONLY

  11. Thinking of getting a new phone soon… was gonna get a Huawei but now they’ve got banned, and I don’t want to get apple because they are too expensive, do you think the Google pixel would be a good choice?

  12. Every search engine created in US has no respect for it's users privacy. The devils collect users data and sell it to third party.

  13. I'm slowly de-Googlefying my experience. It's tricky because I'm on mobile 100%. I switch between iOS and Android and need the seamless transition from one to the other. Google apps are available on both OS's, and finding good alternatives available for both takes time to weed out

  14. Please make a video showing HOW to get google off the integrated desktop. I use Opera and it seems impossible to get google off the browser and use Quant instead. It is the same for other browsers also. Google search is so integrated into the MS framework it will take a genius to get rid of it.

  15. Nobody, no business needs Google. Other search engines exist, DuckDuckGo for example, who also have a browser too (but others are available too). It is not financial suicide to drop Google, unless you are by design and function working in conjunction with Google.

    A few years from now when Huawei has rolled out its services in completion we will wonder why everyone felt they had to use Google, Amazon, YouTube. But that's always the case with a perceived Monopoly.

  16. I thought I was the only one that was paranoia. I saw this many years ago. Microsoft was trying to do what Google did but they're not quite able to manage it.

  17. so i only get ad´s to stuff i am into and maybe google knows i am into pissporn? and now? the shady stuff is encrypted anyways.

  18. use duckduck go with firefox browser,add to fire fox privacy badger,ublock,https everywhere,& noscript ….there yer go job done-for a proxy search duckgo and find a proxy ip adress list,go to network settings change from automatic ip to manuel proxy add the proxy and the port number-make sure the proxy added is high % as it will connect faster,proxies will nearly always be slightly slower………tor browser is slow with windows but pretty dam fast with linux so if we at the stage of ditching google and chrome,internet explorer,go for a free linux from distro watch load ot CD/DVD/USB/SD CARDS run live from the mediums ie usb etc or run live but from system ram,better to install now the type of linux will make no difference but go for a pent testing version thats a proper way to say hacking platform so i personall use parrot security KDE desktop but ive used mate desktop-two different looks thats all,kali linux imo isnt as usr friendly as parrot but both work the same way,blackarch is 11.8 gig the others are about 4 gig……yer can even run them in a pc with no hard drive from the ram !!!! they come with so many diff ways to access the net and a bundle of tools directed at annoniminty etc tor browsers proxy chains the hacker No 1 choice for not getting caught-dont worry about viruses anymore as you now will be able to send them to any windows machine and will have so many payloads for mac android and linux-but yer basically virus exempt and no need for any sort of security even a fire wall as if yer going to be hacked well yer going to be hacked fire wall or not oone quick look at the menu in parrot security will sort of confirm that as with these distros OS SYSTEMs yer can hack any thing from door bells to cars to drones to fones ip cameras paswds you name it you can do it,but a great way to surf learn and see whats going on in the back ground woith people like google european union nasa etc

  19. Duckduckgo also has been proven to compromise privacy. There is vast documentation about this on the internet, anyone can look it up. I personally use StartPage.com. it uses Google's servers through its own proxys, so non of the search queries can be linked back to any individual. You get relevant results without the tracking bullshit. For image search I found that Yandex's image search engine is vastly superior to many alternatives. TinEye for reverse image search. The key is to not rely on a single service but diverisfy your online fingerprint. Makes it harder to profile you if everybody has only has a fraction of information about you.

  20. Kodachi Linux on a bootable USB drive if you want privacy. Everything automatically routes through Tor.

  21. wouldn't it not evem matter because if your doing any of this on your phone they would still be able to track you because of Android?

  22. Google has become just another one of the US government's propagandist arms. 'Big Brother' has many siblings.

  23. I remember when Google was a ' Hero' household name.
    Now it has become a 'nasty' subject no household mentions.

  24. Yep, i switched to duck duck go when i knoticed all the videogame walkthroughs would only show uo from ign/polygon(whos journalists i fundamentally disagree with due to their stance on free speech and outspoken antifa ties ) once i started using duck duck go i was able to find all sorts of based and antisjw videogame sites.

  25. I would like to leave Google but there's some software that I utilize not only for personal but for work and it requires for it to be Google Chrome and you use anything other than that it won't work.

  26. Lately people are criticizing top tech companies for being light years ahead but no one is criticizing their competition for being sloppy. Please criticize Gillette's also for being more aggressive than their competition (whoever they are).

  27. This isn't even the worst part of Google. Google is a DARPA darling, and is involved in much more than we can actually prove. However, if you do a search for PRISM you can see the tip of the iceberg.

  28. Excellent video exposing google for the lap dogs they are. I use the tor vpn orbot and duckduckgo and get excellent search results without all these targeted ads.

  29. My debit card saved in Google play store only, and the details of my debit card nobody knows , but one unauthorized transactions was done by Google proximabeta ,then I contacted Google play store after one month Google return my money,

  30. i tried to disable google for my android and i guess the keyboard input is google based since I cant type anymore. is there a way i would be able to type without any software from google?

  31. What do I do with my android device without google services in it? If we use other search engine in chrome android, Google puts me in their hitlist.

  32. My government uses google drive for work efficiency. Then many people become good actors and actresses to fake their hidden agenda, spying and manipulating one another.

  33. I RECHARGE MY NET AND I POINT OUT MY VIews AND CRITICISISES BECAUSE 8 RECHARGE MY MOBILE NETWORK AND YOU HAVE NO POWER TO THROW YOUR GARBAGES IN MY PERSONAL MOBILE…???? GIVE YOUR PERMISSION TO ME…TO THROW ALL YOUR GARBAGE THROW IN INDIAN GOVERNMENT?????????

  34. INDIAN GOVERNMENT MAY BE DO MISTAKE BUT..WE PEOPLE'S OF INDIANS..MAY NOT.AND MUST NOT STUPID AFTER AT ALL…OK GOOGLE…

  35. I really don't care if Google tracks my data. I don't give anything. And Google does really good work. And I think it's normal that a company don't want other company to get better.

  36. It is very much virus, as from my searches for video's, I know that there are other video platforms, but the one that keeps on putting it's video's before any one else's is Googles links to you tube, and that once I look at a you tube video on a browser that is clear of having any link to any you tube video's, it then becomes infected with you tube only searches.. even if I have Yippy or Quant than use Google search engine, it still seems to be popping up as a search engine even when I don't have it the browser, or that would even want to use it… very much a virus.. that needs immunization against.

  37. Okay listen here…!!! So EVERYTHING you are SAYING in this video MIGHT be TRUE…!!! I BELIEVE IT TO…!!! But as i was MORE into all these NEWS about the INTERNET & how they LIE & OVERALL CONTROL US…!!! Through many different APPS/PLATFORMS…!!! And i even STOPPED using Google as my search engine plus i STOPPED using Facebook to…!!! But then i STARTED THINKING that even if we stop using THESE platforms but STILL USE the YouTube APP like we all are RIGHT NOW…!!! As we are WATCHING this video…!!! Then we are NOT CHANGING NOTHING AT ALL…!!! And this is 💯 FACTS…!!! And you to could do your RESEARCH and come back later so you can see EXACTLY what I'm SAYING right now…!!! I COULD PROVE THIS WITH ONLY ONE QUESTION TO EVERYONE IN THE COMMENTS SECTION…!!! WHO OWNS YOUTUBE…??

  38. I’m using Qwant for a while now and it works great. I think they’re rapidly developing their services

  39. It must be nice to have all that data. Wonder how much they actually use it, besides advertising that is.
    If Google did start using every single ounce of information we put out for purposes outside of marketing we'd be living in the world of Minority Report.

  40. Google is the internet. Tablets and smart phones are google, because android is google. You just can t surf the web and don t use googe, actualy watching video is using google because YT is google, can t stop that monster.

  41. I was recommended to try a new search engine that does NOT spy on or track its users this one https://brave.com/

  42. Wonder what they will do when Dorsey has pissed twitter users off, banned or disabled, as nemesis Facebook plus google, Derr no joe public then no point in businesses placing adverts?. I don’t use google, twitter or scumbook, quite honestly I couldn’t careless if the data box blew up, its full of shit and meddling I would rather go back to print

  43. If you have some experience with windows powershell you can kill off the diagnostics process and prevent it from starting up on boot.

  44. FUCK YOU GOOGLE, FUCK YOU FACEBOOK, FUCK YOU TWITTER, FUCK YOU APPLE, FUCK Y'ALL BIG TECH TYRANTS AND GO STRAIGHT TO HELL!

  45. I agree. Stop using Google. Use DuckDuckGo with a VPN. Use Brave Browser. STOP USING CHROME and EDGE. They will soon begin embedding tracking tech into the browsers and already bypass stop tracking ads – which never worked in Chrome or IE/EDGE.

  46. @The Hated One then how should a Good IoT company should be?
    We provide GPS devices for automobiles but don't save user data more than 90days, and we never see user location history, customers pay us, but they couldn't afford that much, what shall we do?
