Thumbtack is outbidding the small business people in the search industry, intercepting our leads, and then reselling the leads back to us for $3.+ each lead. When consumers happen upon their site, they do NOT know that Thumbtack is harvesting their information and reselling it to us - the small businesses they depend on on a daily basis. Guess what peeps? Google has stake in Thumbtack. Yes, that's right...Google is selling you Adwords, but then Google Capital backed thumbtack with $100 million. Thumbtack is using that money to outbid us, grabbing the leads and reselling them to us. Can you spell MONOPOLY, and can you smell something fishy?

(But with the announcement today that it’s landed a whopping $100 million investment led by Google Capital, Thumbtack’s days of relative tech press anonymity are almost certainly over.
