One of the main concerns about Google is the collection and use of user data. Google collects a vast amount of data on users, including search history, location, and personal information, which it uses to improve its services and target ads. While this data collection can improve user experience and convenience, it also raises privacy concerns and questions about the potential misuse of this information.

Another issue is the potential for algorithmic bias. Google's algorithms are designed to provide the most relevant search results based on user queries, but they can also reflect the biases and prejudices of the individuals who create and train them. For example, if the algorithm is trained on data that has inherent biases, such as race or gender, it can perpetuate these biases in the search results it provides.

There have also been criticisms of Google's dominance in the search engine market and the potential for anti-competitive practices. Some argue that Google's search algorithms favor its own products and services over those of its competitors, which can limit consumer choice and stifle innovation.

Overall, while Google has revolutionized the way we access and process information, it's important to be aware of the potential downsides and to use its services with caution and awareness.

Google is all about curated results (besides their advertising based business model).

Also, the system can be rigged or 'bought' (influenced) to have one's own results featured in top two pages.

On curated results, the actual direct liss making proposition for consumers can easily be felr, when it comes to things like flight booking and others.‎ ‏‏‎‏‏‎ ‏‏

Since Google pushes its own tickers, allied services for such things.. right below the search box and even before the results

the average user tends to simply use that.

Or even be misguided into believing that those.. are the cheapest fares.

Even when they are not .

More about curated results,

Google actively blocks results which might show a known, popular electoral candidate in poor light, whenever a country is about to go to elections or thereabouts.

‏‏‎ ‏‏‎‏‏‎ ‏‏

Unlike many other webcrawlers which are purely automated, Google suppressed many scandal related articles, results on many top people from getting searched.

Just like any other conglomerate ABC Inc. too is heavily involved in tax evasion.

In various jurisdictions, including E.U., India

it has even had the authorities claim that it engaged in unscrupulous 'profit shifting' to various tax heavens.

Use of creative accounting, ficticious numbers or outright classification of profits aa 'royalties' being paid to group companies.. in those tax heavens.. is a routine way for ABC Inc. to shift its profits from high tax jurisdictions

to lower tax jurisdictions.‏‏
