About Inside Google

Consumer Watchdog, a nonpartisan nonprofit public interest group, launched Inside Google to educate the public and opinion leaders about Google’s dangerous dominance over the Internet, computing and our online lives. Inside Google’s blog is authored by experienced consumer advocates and journalists working to expose the “black box” at Google with an eye towards holding Google engineers accountable to social mores, ethical customs and the rule of law.

In the fall of 2008, with the support of the Rose Foundation, Consumer Watchdog embarked upon a privacy project to educate the public and opinion leaders about the need for greater online privacy, and to hold Google accountable for tracking consumers online without explicit permission and for exhibiting its monopolistic power in dangerous ways. The goal was to convince Google of the social and economic importance of giving consumers control over their on-line lives. By persuading Google, the Internet’s leading company, to adopt adequate guarantees, its policies could become the gold standard for privacy for the industry, potentially improving the performance of the entire online sector. As Google grew increasingly recalcitrant, and the company’s growth continued unchecked into an array of sectors, Consumer Watchdog expanded its investigation and advocacy, leading to the launch “Inside Google.”

Google seems to care little about consumers and very much about its pocketbook. While the Google search-results page for my name in English has 85,600 links, all of which are valid and positive, the Google search-results page for my name in Hebrew has a second-place link with a defamatory title. Clicking this link, however, opens a blank page; the website owner has deleted the content of the page but not the page itself. I have asked Google's CEO Larry Page and Google's Israeli subsidiary to remove this invalid and libelous link; they have ignored my messages. I have filed a fortmal request for removal on the Google Webmaster Tools website; still no reponse from Google. I intend to post this complaint all over the Internet until that scurrilous and invalid link is removed.

That's an unfortunate situation you're in! I sincerely hope it gets resolved without too much more stress for you.

Google doesn't care about it's users. In fact, see this page with a couple of videos:

... or did they just make you an offer you couldn't refuse?

It's been nearly a year?

Hey there, I am still hatin' on Google, but I have a lot of other obligations that have taken my attention away from this group. Anyone who wants to contribute articles/tips/info is more than welcome to do so!
