Part of my portfolio is informational products. I spend a lot of money advertising them in adwords. However lately - Youtube (now being owned by google) has been given a free ride in the serps. Often times now the information I'm trying to sell using certain keywords, is being given away by someone on youtube. Which is fine - it's great to get free stuff on the internet.
However I just thought I'd throw this out there for AWA - Google may want to rethink the stuff they let freeload to the top of the serps, as it may effect their advertising revenue. I'm sure they already know this, but I thought I'd throw this advertiser's opinion out there.
I hear you on that. I like how they are using onebox for trademark terms. Thats not cool either. using onebox has its place in Google, don't get me worng, but using it on trademark terms above the company is wrong imho.

I thought Google cared more about their users and search experience, not about their "advertising revenues." Just like webmasters are told to care more about their visitors, not search engine positions...
