    “Google’s not just a search engine. We’ve also helped hundreds of businesses in every U.S. state to grow.”

    Google may indeed help the little guy, but it’s at the expense of some other company that use to receive revenue from small businesses. I can think of several small business resources our business sent money to pre-Google, those include (but not limited too)… AT&T Yellow Pages, Yellow Book, United Yellow Pages, numerous local newspapers (LA Times, Santa Monica Register, LA Weekly, etc.), Chamber of Commerce, Local Business Networking Groups, several Direct Mail marketing companies, local fairs and events (like LA Marathon, 5K & 10K events), and many more.

    I would not be surprised to find that is the case with most small businesses in the USA. Money that used to go to local advertising campaigns now goes to Google adwords campaigns.
