Tasting Google

Following the recent decision of Google to stop monetizing domains less than five days old, it is interesting to wonder if its competitors are going to do the same or...if they are going to promote themselves.

The ethic at Google is very important: the job is to improve the use of Internet but more than anything: improve the quality of its content. By stopping the monetization of domain tasting, Google follows its ethic and kills the ability to publish crap content which you will probably find many time when hitting almost anything on Google. What I qualify as "crap content" are these pages with multiple links which only purpose is to generate "one more click" for its owners to earn a few cents.No adsense on crap content anymore?

Good point Google. Everyone doesn't have ethic... What I would like to know is how much crap content publishers are going to loose because of such decision. What is nice is that you will probably click less to find what you are looking for.
