On creating a better web

Another interesting read today, over Marco Arment weblog…

Google and blogs: “Shit.” →

Starting from the visitor’s traffic decline since the Google Readers’s closure, Marco notices how search engine is more and more driven by the amount of dollars spent in marketing, against the quality of the content and the ‘connection’ to the user’s query.

We – all – write contents in our blogs, and then start a spam-like behavior of spreading our URLs over every single social network in existence. Searching for a peak in traffic gained organically, against a brought search result placement.

Marco – as the ethical hacker he is – proposes to start building tools that make the web “better”. But from my point of view this does not excuse us from using the Internet with greater awareness,  and keeping educating people to do the same.
