Say you have a page on a blog about a new game that’s coming out. On this page is a very well thought out, organized and spellchecked article describing in great detail the pros and cons of said game. This in turn allows the reader to make an informed decision before buying the game.
Now on the other hand we have sites like IGN and Game Informer who review games in mass and therefore may not have the time required to give an intimate review of a game. This is not what’s wrong with this situation though. The problem is that Google knows what is on your page due to the google site verification tool. Even while knowing the quality of work put into each page they would still direct more traffic towards one of the bigger sites simply due to the volume of views they would normally get.
Now don’t take what I’m writing the wrong way. I understand how capitalism works and of course the obvious route to take would be the one that is going to make you more money. The problem with this however is that when creative and insightful minds are stifled, soon we will only be left with opinions based on whoever has the largest wallet. I think that kind of defeats the purpose of the internet and the communities that make it a better place.
