Can we complain to Google & where?

A website ranked on top with adwords is legal, but why that same website is showing on first page on SEO basis too?
This then shows a No Fair playing ground

    Seriously?
    Of course a site can use Adwords and rank organically on the first page!!!! There is nothing wrong with that.

      it is wrong, as there then remains no fair play. Adwords uses the money which is legal, but if the same website ranks above in SEO too then what logic is that.
      If people are doing SEO on money basis only, then there should be no algorithms describing rules/policy, just pay the money stand in queue and wait for your turn to rank up. No worries on doing SEO.
      Sites ranking organically is crap, it is just that the algorithms are sucking money with only some people getting favorable results, rest in queue, paying more forever.
      The same goes with forums if I ask them how much time/day it will take on my ad banner to appear or when will my queue end, then there is no reply.

      Money ranks above all, sweet talk only appears in Introduction

  • Why would it be "illegal" ?
    They probably put in a lot of effort to rank on the first page of SERPs. They may also be spending good amount of money to rank on adwords. They are getting the rewards for their time effort and money.
    It is very much a level playing field.

    Why is it unfair that someone who spends money on SEO and Adwords should rank in SEO and Adwords?

    Do you have problems with a site being at the top in Adwords that's getting a lot of sales through direct mail? How do you feel about billboards and newspaper ads making money the same company?

      it is unfair, as SEO is just a mask to cover up the money part for a site to rank up.

      I earlier asked in my previous question that anybody here boasting about their websites still ranking top on SEO basis. Nobody was confident to reply back

      Don't compare with billboards/newspaper as at least people paying money know their advt. will come up after so many days, but in SEO no matter how much effort/money is spent, still you are not sure on ranking top

      Algorithms just suck money, instead they should directly reveal the money part up front and remove the SEO segment, that way it is full fair and play.

        This Friday I am closing on a loan that will bring me $7200. I got it through SEO. It cost me $250 in SEO to get $7,228. This is not the first closing I get from SEO and it's not the last one. Last year, I spent $720 on SEO and got $a bit over $42,000 in gross revenue generated.

        I think SEO is awesome!
