In your mind the equals broken but since those PPC results pay the bills and drive profits which in turn drive the stock price, sounds to me like it's just daily corporate business in the works and is probably exactly what the bean counters who now run Google wanted.
The sooner people get over the fact the profits drive Google, the better of they will be.
Mmmm. Organic brings in the traffic, PPC pays the bills. How many Adsensers would trash their sites just so people would click on the ads? Very few, and those that did would realise their folly in short order.
Poor organics means long-term decline in traffic. Most corporations think on longer timescales than their detractors.
