yah. and that's ONE of the many reasons google did not take off as is in Korea as it did elsewhere else.
not at naver or the major portals.
(I have seen a couple small unknown search sited do this...but can't for the life of me remember what they were called -- if they are still even around).
This is for pure business reasons. Most sections you can pay to get listed on and has prices relevant to their positions. If netizens to move it on the fly (or collapse the sections)...that's bad news for advertisers. Also, Overture pays BIG bucks in guarantees to make sure their listings are at the top.
I hate to say it, but, imo, the day will come. sooner or later.
perhaps if people started learning how SEO type activities ARE done in Korea now ...they might be more ready for it. ;)
