Fook Google and it's fookin' AMP

What.

Not that I use anything Google anymore, though the world keeps trying to push it on me.

Reminds me, I have an account to delete, and past due.

Re: Fook Google and it's fookin' AMP

yeah, I saw that yesterday or so via arstechnica (I think). As you say – fook them greedy idjoots.

I am getting closer and closer to outright banning them from indexing my sites.

sorry for being so thick. But what exactly is the issue? What does removing URLS mean.

would like to better understand the issue.

I don’t mind if Publishers don’t use AMP… as long as they don’t go back to design webpages laden with ads that take 30 seconds to load on a phone the way they did before AMP.

this would give me headaches

Do publishers have a real choice about using it? … Note, you don’t grant these rights to the AMP Project, you grant them to Google.

Hi bici
Basically google wants to totally hide the urls from its search results and only show the google forwarding urls in their db. So, if somebody searches for “bici logic” for example, your url will not appear in the results and what will appear instead is a google url which forwards to your site.

The problem, as I see it is that all sites will become equal in the eyes of the surfers and it will make phishing and spoofing much easier.

On another level, this is seen by many as a colonialist step on behalf of Google.

Re: Fook Google and it's fookin' AMP

I’m not seeing google results without urls. And neither was the author of the Reddit article that was linked.

Look at the original article – the author searched something that obviously would have ads purchased – “mortgages.” The so called search results without urls were ads – not search results.

Life may have challenges, but this isn’t one of them.

The feature will only work on Android and Chrome.

Re: Fook Google and it's fookin' AMP

I find it very hard to find what I’m looking for nowadays. Google, and the other search engines that rely on Google results, turns up sponsored sites and often several pages from one sponsored site at the top of its results. Google is simply presenting results that have been paid for, in most cases.

It’s interestingand despicable what they’ve done to Mercola

I’ve noticed that many people on their phones never enter a URL, they just search on Google and assume a site doesn’t exist if Google doesn’t show it. Like Farcebook users, they think the internet IS farcebook and google. Removing URLs just reinforces this perception.
