Before we all run around screaming 'the sky is falling' - just do a search on Google for:
and tell me that result number 1 is really the 'best on the web' - the 'I'm feeling lucky' result and all that....
Once you've stopped laughing - look at the PR for number 1.
Then try the same search on Alta Vista or any other SE. Same result? Hardly.
Then tell me again that this is about adwords sales and PFI - this isn't a strategy - its just that we can now all see a 'work in process' - which isn't finished yet. Like how a half built freeway isn't as good/fast/wide as when its finally finished.
I agree with rfgdxm1 - harsh but true - broken wins. But its broken because its not finished yet - which is what GG has been telling us for weeks now.
I apologise if I have 'technically' broken the TOS in my attempt to clearly make this point...... but I couldn't think of another way to demonstrate this.
