Recently my estimated YouTube estimated earnings were showing nearly $13000, not much for 3 years work and over 14 million views, most of which have had ads on the side bars at the bottom of the picture and adverts ranging from 10 seconds to over one minute in front of the video, adverts Google will be paid for, $13000 is not great but it is a start, its something to show for the hours that I have sat at this computer researching and putting information together.
Two days later I log in to my YouTube account to access the money I have earned, its gone, my estimated earnings now show 0.64 cents! I attempt to contact Google, I find a YouTube contact email, firstname.lastname@example.org and send my questions.
The next I day receive an email, message failed I send it again and try to find other ways of contacting YouTube or Google, after literally hours of looking through YouTube troubleshooting pages, answering questionnaires, searching the internet and even a desperate phone call to Google Adwords I get no where.
I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to contact Google over the internet, I believe that it would be easier to contact the dead then what it is Google. Why is it so hard to contact Google or YouTube? The only way left for me to try is a letter to their head office, Google own Gmail, YouTube, control a massive proportion of the internet and are supposed to be leader in the technological world, yet the only way to contact them is a letter, what do they think it is the 1800s? Its just an easy way for Google and YouTube to completely ignore peoples complaints and problems.
Complaints like YouTube paying sick, greedy corporations for views and adverts used on my videos, Sony, BBC, News Corporation and Hearst Corporation have all profited and sometimes even taken down videos that I have made, I am aware that these companies are due some payment, for some clips I have used but surely not all of it, apparently I am allowed none of it, I have 4 kids and I am currently unemployed and on benefits, I am owed money from billionaire corporations, but that will not stop the Department of Work and pensions (who’s offices attacked my website earlier on in the year, leading to my website having to be taken down) from pressuring me from taken a shit job at a warehouse for no more money then my benefits.
One month later my earnings are now showing $3.22.

The GREED OF Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
Larry Page and Sergey Brin are the founders and 16% owners of internet giant Google. As of 2013, Page’s personal wealth is estimated to be US $20.3 billion, ranking him 13th on the Forbes 400, a list of the 400 richest Americans. In 2013 Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin’s personal wealth was estimated to be $22.8 billion by Forbes making him the 21st richest man on the planet.
But like most billionaires the more money they get the greedier they become, in 2012 Google invested $18.2 billion dollars in to lobbying making them the 8th biggest government investors in the USA, money well spent because due to the super rich and huge multi national corporations like Google lobbying there are now so many loop holes in the tax system its easy for these billionaire corporations like Google, Amazon and Starbucks to avoid paying the huge tax bills that the middle and working classes are imprisoned for not paying.
The working classes pay as little as 20% and as much as 50% the super rich pay as little as 0% and as much as 5%, its a effective way to keep themselves rich and the rest of us poor, Google tax evasion has cost the American tax payer $3.1 billion dollars over a three year span, why else would the lobbyists lobby?
Google finances is not the only source of power Google have, Google also have control of information, they have information on its users even more disturbingly they have the power to chose what we read on Google news and even what we watch on Youtube, Google may not yet censor but even without full blown censorship they have the power to hide and slow the spread information, if Google do not like something like criticism of themselves for scandals like tax evasion and lobbying they can easily hide it and prevent millions from reading it. Google is a very dangerous and greedy company and the greed of Google is destroying the internet, they have already destroyed YouTube with ads and censor now they are destroying the whole internet and freedom of speech at the same time.
