    Default Bad News From GOOGLE - Encrypted Searches

    Looks like Google is starting to really screw marketers and affiliates with Google Encrypted Searches.

    We are starting to see these coming up more and more regularly lately through our analytics software at our site Real Money Fantasy Leagues .

    Here is the relevant article:

    Google To Begin Encrypting Searches & Outbound Clicks By Default With SSL Search


    Thoughts?

    Yea, pretty frustrating.

    As much as I love ranking number one in Google for big terms, my strategy is to be as independent of Google as possible. I write long pages, get into detail and do as much research as I can. I hope people bookmark me and share me, and of course I get those longtails. Basically trying to be an authority and let people come back to me on their own. Can't rely on Google for everything.
    Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.

    Not that big a deal, the data is still available in Webmaster tools. But it is a blow for 'transperancy' and makes it more difficult to avoid using Google. How long until they charge for webmaster tools I wonder?

    Seriously though, I was wondering how long until they charge for GA.

    Currently looking to buy income earning websites. I have a large budget for the right project. If you have any form of money earning site in gambling, finance or any other related niche, and want to sell, ship me a pm and let's work out a deal.

    Also looking for premium domain.

    Hmmm - was just typing in why I think this means options like Piwik are so important, but the it occurred to me - "How long will it be 'til your site gets a G penalty because it doesn't have a GA script in the footer?

    Lol - all u want but their two recent exposures of improper cookie tracking are classic examples of their utter contempt for integrity.
