Google, for the fourth time that I know of, has messed up the exchange rate that they pay publishers outside of the US. Of course, each time, this is in favor of Google paying less to publishers. 4 times!?!?!?!

For a company that we rely on to organize and sort content correctly, whilst not being able to verify or check any of the workings, mistakes like this leave me with the feeling that a whole lot of what they do in other areas must be riddled with mistakes as well. Perhaps not, but still, you’d think they’d want to make sure one of the few ways their actions can be checked in public actually get done properly. Especially when anyone fresh out of highschool can figure out an exchange rate, it doesn’t bode well that one of the ’smartest’ companies on the planet can’t.

As with banks, errors rarely seem to be in the customer’s favour.

Granted, I know it does not look good for a company the size and stature of Google to be making public mistakes, essentially as critical as they potentially could be but they are only human like everyone else and every personal experience I have ever had with a large company/organisation has in some way or another messed up.If you take it into account the ratio of Google’s mistakes (granted, only ones we know about as per public knowledge) to the customer base they have and what must be hundreds of thousands of active transactions on a weekly basis, I don’t think they really are doing too badly...?However, that is just my opinion, I know I wouldn’t be happy if they paid me a less than I am owed from Adsense but at least Google put right the mistakes promptly.*sits back and awaits abuse* :p
