Good point. Most commercial sites will have the most accurate scoop on a product. Many times as in our case when it is a contracted product line the dealers site is the only place for accurate info. The info sites are mostly linked to people hustling knockoffs. With inferior content as well. So if google is looking for "ACCURATE INFO" then that will require commercial sites. Maybe they should just enlarge their staff and start slamming the real spam and stop penalizing well themed authoritative sites. There are other Search Engines out there and Yahoo will be switching to INKTOMI soon and they still rank things normally. I am not going to change for Google. If they stay with this program then shopping people will just migrate away unless Google alows both commercial and non commercial searches in a recognizeable manor on their search page. The thing is are the results all that good even for well themed info sites. I dont think so. Just a bunch of spammy directories that will now be more than happy to fill up with adsense ads. 20 billion is a lot of money and it is money people driving things at this point. Sergie didnt buy all those datacenters and payroll with his lunch money.
