When? AFAIK Google have always made their money selling eyeballs to
advertisers. If you can't distinguish PR bullshit like their
"unofficial motto" from reality, there's not much hope for you.
A large part of Google's business depends on being somewhat honourable. We
trust them not to read our email, not to inappropriately spy on our web
searches, and to have a somewhat level playing field in search results.
Anything that Google does to diminish our trust is going to eventually hurt
their financial position.
If Google directors sign off on "evil" things then that could be the basis for
legal action by stock holders.
