Poll Confirms Government Oversight of Google is a Bad Idea

by Matthew Diehl on July 19, 2010

On Thursday, July 15th the NY Times published a opinion piece about the potential need for a governmental committee to oversee changes to the Google algorithm based on the idea that Google controls too much of the Internet traffic to websites.

I posted my own opinion on government oversight of the Google algorithm and the ludicrousness of it.

Also, Danny Sullivan did his own satirical take on the NY Time algorithm at Search Engine Land and then backed it up with hard facts [a must read if you missed it].

I also ran a poll to find out if the government should get involved with the Google algorithm and, guess what, 100% of its takers (so far) think this is a bad idea.

Here is the poll [If you haven't taken it, please vote. If you have, thanks!]

Should the US Gov't be involved in the Google algorithm?
