Haters Gonna Hate: Google Competitors Launch Campaign Saying Google Is Hurting Internet

Thanks to Search Engine Journal for sharing this video. According to SEJ:

Yelp, TripAdvisor and other allied companies launched a new effort aimed at convincing European antitrust officials to force Google to stop promoting its own online services at the expense of its competitors.

The campaign is being called Focus on the User. What do you think? Do Yelp and TripAdvisor really care about the user experience or is this just an attempt to take down the Internet’s most powerful force?

One take away from this video is the importance of Google Plus. Whether or not this campaign is attempting to combat Google’s power (we think it is), they’re not lying when they exemplify Google Plus’ influence on search engine results and the Internet.
