    So I read with interest today that Google's shopping results now only include paid advertisers with the top listings being the advertisers with the deepest pockets!

    Funny thing is Bing see's this as a reason to attack Google, I guess they do have a point - Check out Bing's website dedicated to side swiping the mighty G http://www.scroogled.com/.

    I Love this quote from "Google's 2012 SEC Disclosure: "After all, ads are just more answers to users' queries." That just about sums them up!

    With 70% of the information above the fold in Google web search now being paid advertising generic search is slowly decreasing in value. "Don't Be Evil" more like "Don't Be Free" Fricking Leeches.

    "After all, ads are just more answers to users' queries." - That makes me sick. Google doesn't believe in natural results, yet thats what the preach to SEOs. It's all about the benjamins..

    Google holds the key, they will do whatever they want. If we put ads above the fold, G penalize us. But G will do the same thing.

    I hope one day, some billionaire invests loads of money on Bing and eventually become real competitors of Google.

    Even scarier how people don't care how out of control companies get and say simple things like "they're a private company they can do whatever they want". That's the scary about it.

    Some time back i just read an article here about the internet domination by google, a very interesting point though most of the people don't give a shit about it , but i do think the future should have something even for the new comers. something to look out for

    Like them or hate them. You can't disagree they have a brilliant model...

    Keep adding more free services for the average user.

    Keep it free for users
    And charge the business/advertisers.

    This is literally already how Bing operates.

    So true. Can't tell you how sick I am of hearing idiots say things like that. A few centuries ago they would have said "Hey, this Nero guy is Emperor so he can do whatever he likes, it's cool."

    I wonder what search results appear if we type in "scroogled" in Google?
