The Who's - Who of the Internet.


Today I wanted to write a review on Google about my experiences with Vertical Scope when I realized it had been so long since I ever logged into Google, that they had obviously forgotten my password, or requested me to change it to include some magnitude of numbers, symbols and capital letters. Anyway, I soon realized why I don't do any business with Google, which is to say customer service does not exist for Google Gmail, and thus the representative (from India), took 16 minutes to figure out a way to tell me this. 

But the whole ordeal got me to realizing some comical facts! For instance, if you want to call Google the best and fastest way is to look up "How to call Google" on Microsoft Bing. LOL, I am not even kidding, look for yourself!

Here you can see, on Google's OWN website, that little has been done to ensure optimal placement of their company information. This is by design folks.

And here you can see, on Bing's website, that they are more than happy to provide the toll free number for support on the front top of the screen!

Took me literally 5 minutes of clicking thru links on Google and I still could not find their telephone number! LOL, out of morbid curiosity I decided to search on Bing, and BINGO! There it was! You can't make this stuff up folks! And if you are anything like me you are probably wondering where all this is going... Well it would seem to me that we all spend a lot of time on the internet, and like it or not it is changing all around us. What the end user does, the end user does... But when you start to realize quality of service going down, while price keeping going up... Well you start to think to yourself, maybe I need to re-invent the entire internet! LOL, totally laughable, I know... But you really start to feel that way!

For now I have to go get my free email account password worked out on Gmail, as they have now cost me over a half hour in dealing with something that should have been much easier. You would think that sending a password reset email to an account you're locked out of is somewhat self explanatory, but if you got 16 minutes to waste you can call Google and some dude in India will be more than happy to tell you how to go thru that process again and again in an infinite loop. Mind you I am going thru all of this so I can write my review on Google about Vertical Scope, which opened up another rabbit hole that involves Google, Amazon, Alexa Rank and of course Vertical scope! 

Stay tuned for my next post that explains why these companies all work together in concert to overinflated the values of their web site, advertise, and more than likely control a great deal of information for their own advantage... Just remember the "How to contact google" photos above, and how google wanted to control the spread of their customer support phone number and tell me I am wrong.

So in keeping with my promise to update this thread, and connect the dots, allow me the opportunity to lay it all out.. Now keep in mind, my theories were derived from a very personal connection and experience with these companies, some more than others but the basic pecking order is of no matter because I had to follow the trail.

Now incase you forgot, this thread is the brain child of my trying to get my head around why a public web forum would much rather refund $89 than take the money and have faith in it's moderators. I'll give away some of this story now in saying BenzWorld.org does not have good moderators, or a good business ethic! And that much I can rest at ease with and I am literally "Taking it to the bank", all $89 CAD's worth! LOL

Now for the big boys and how they all play into it... As best as I can see it, Google is the biggest player in this game. AutoForums, Vertical Scope and BenzWorld.org ALL rely on Google Ads for their revenues, this has been well known and it's the main reason why many have complained about the amount of ads on a single BenzWorld.org page. It's hard to say with any certainty what they (web forums) get paid per "advertisement box", but I figure it comes down to something like 1 tenth of a cent per square inch, per view or per "impression". That can add up real quick! And I don't know any of the particulars with regards to frequency of payment, or any of that but what I can tell you is that for $89 Canadian it takes away a great deal of the Ad's on BenzWorld.org - and the membership is not really lifetime, rather just 29 years. Now keep up with me because this is where it gets interesting, and this is where the real evil came in, and may also explain how Obama was able to sweep the internet in 2008 as all these companies were just coming up at that time.

So we know AF, VS and BW.ORG are automotive forum companies, making money from Google advertisements. That begs the question "What kind of people advertise" with Google Ads? Well, back in 2008, for the people who weren't familiar or active on the web back then, a lot of big companies did not buy into the web ad's markets, it wasn't until much later when Facebook rose up that we started seeing more and more "big" companies. Back in 2008 we had ad's like "The Fart Button",

Anyway, this begs the question of what kind of companies originally invested in these ads, which I am sure at first Google did. Of course the Ad's would be raw and "in your face". They wanted you to know they were there! More importantly, they wanted people who made decisions for companies advertisements to see them also. The whole thing worked, and the ads caught on. Now days you can generally expect several ads on any given page, and usually they will be tailored to your specific taste by way of cookies and web data that is collected about your viewing history. For example, recently I went to view sectional living room furniture. I'll be damned if now all the ads on my screen are sectionals. How ironic right? WRONG, these ads are not just coincidence. They are derived off your most recent searches and there is a profile of all us online that none of us has access to. It's all legal like, but I don't trust Google one bit! Furthermore I don't trust ANY company that expects or encourages you to store your data off site. That is a huge red flag for me.

Now you may wonder, how does this tie into Obama, Amazon and Alexa Rank? Well Amazon and Alexa are going to have to wait until tomorrow, because I am still cropping the screen shots for comparison. But I can finish off the Obama aspect of it by saying that Google had a profound hand in helping Obama get elected. Google was more or less the online champion of the Democrat party in fact. Google has managed to weasel it's way into our schools, and into the hands of many Americans who want lower cost, high end cell phones. Once this happens, well the migration to Google for someone is a lot like a fish to water. Googles holdings are vast, and most all of them require your stuff to be stored on their servers. I would also go so far as to say Soros had a hand in the money part, and how it was that a lot of TV networks and media outlets were taken over just before the 2008 election. Even right this very moment, Democrats are scheming how they intend to mount a comeback in 2020, so I am hoping my Republican buddies are paying attention, and should they need some private insight, they can always email me.

One company that seems detached from all of this, and naturally was cheated out of the entire market by the US Government via Anti-Trust laws is Microsoft. Perhaps it's because Bill Gates had ALL of this planned out back in the 90's but was cut off at the knees by the US Government, but honestly the technologies available with Windows 95 and such were state of the art and game changing. They still are but I have serious doubts in Satya Narayana Nadella competence to put Microsoft back on that level... It's not all his fault, since Windows 10 is an impressive update of Windows XP, but it's still just Windows NT with a new skin. There is no integration which really falls on Bill Gates lap, however that may have only been the gun shy result of past Anti-Trust butt kickings. It's kind of hard to run when you're cut off at the waist. 

Now I realize I have gone a little off the narrative, and I am leaving the last tying knot for the end... But this thread is titled the "Who's - Who of the Internet", and I don't intend to sugar coat it at all. How I have perceived it is how I will tell it.

Whereas George Soros has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition against the United States and its citizens, has created and funded dozens (and probably hundreds) of discrete organizations whose sole purpose is to apply Alinsky model terrorist tactics to facilitate the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United State, and has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government, the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic terrorists, and have all of his personal an organizational wealth and assets seized under Civil Asset Forfeiture law.
