If that nonsense ever became true, google would die rapidly as people stopped using it.

Even half true. Or 5% true.

Except in the sense that Google know very well that the reason they have advertising revenue in the first place is because their search engine works for users, so we choose to use it. From memory, google's search results were no better than altavista, but I switched to google simply because they didn't burden me with deezyner pages that took forever to load.
