Has Your Search Term Been Hijacked???

search users, search terms, isp reroutes search termsI read a very interesting article today and it made me mad. I think it made me mad because ISP’s think we the common folk are stupid. Like we don’t know that they get great financial gain from us the search user.

Here is a snippet of the article which I read over at VerticalLeap.com. I want you to read the snippet, then read the whole article and tell me what you think.

An online marketing method is set to come under greater scrutiny after it was found that users searches were being rerouted by internet service providers (ISPs) for their own financial gain and without people’s knowledge.

Okay, there is the snippet and the link to the full article. I guess I meant this post to be more of a rant then a post. It aggravates me to no end. The Internet Marketing field is so over populated and competitive; without cheaters. Those with the financial back up seem to be able to do whatever they dang well please. And profit from it.

This is why spam is so prevalent for us. Because people always find a way to game the system, cheat and take the easy way out. So, do we get mad because we didn’t figure out how to cheat or because we want to do it with hard work?

I don’t have the answers, but I know articles like this really and truly make me mad. They also make me wonder, what chance do I have to compete with scammers and cheats?

Or it could be that Im just in a horrible mood and it’s storming once again. Hmmmm…..”)

What do you think? Is it fruitless to even get angry?

Share this with your friends so they all know what’s really happening in the search world!
