The need to squeeze every penny out of every single visitor or hit mean they need to depend on search traffic or other high volume traffic sources because visitors are less likely to come back to their site willingly. Long-term overall users are going to just increase Ad Blocker if not just altogether avoid websites. I know a number of users search with Instagram for new information before resorting to Google.

100x internet speeds from 20 years ago and we are still dealing with slow loading cause of pop-ups and Ad Networks waterfalls. Wild.
Faster internet allows for autoloading video ads.

Not what I'd predict Google would be ranking in 2021 but here we are.

But I guess that's where monopolies end up. The amount of profit Google makes from search vs how much they invest into improving the product is just sad.

Finally got the message that a Google rep wants to talk to me about my campaigns, all affiliate.

I both feel vindicated and anxious.

I've never experienced google reps reaching out to my affiliate Google Ads accounts, where as they always reach out with even small biz accounts.

"He wants more. Don't you, Rocco?" "Yeah that's it!" "Will you ever get enough? Will you, Rocco?" "Well, I never have. Well I guess I won't."

I am curious as to how it went?

She cancelled several times and told me to connect on LinkedIn.

I'm thinking she was unexperienced and someone told her that they don't talk to affiliates :D

Does anyone have any experience with moving to the USA legally as a self-employed individual? Figured I'd ask here before going down the rabbit hole on Google.

"Then he wanted me to tell you that obviously our public line will be that we're considering the offer but it doesn't matter what you offer. He will never recommend this to the board. You're gonna bleed cash and he's gonna bleed cash. It will never end. And maybe you'll kill him but if you don't he will aim to kill you. He will go bankrupt or go to jail before he lets you beat him. He will beat you in the business and if that doesn't work he will send people around. He will send men to kill your pets and fuck your wives and it will never be over."​
