I'll have to swap out my site search from Google search to Bing search if I spot even one such result for a keyword I'm competitive with now, I want my visitors to have a range of the best choices and I'd link to ONE site instead of offering Google search if I wanted this. Stupid move G.
It's funny that whoever is moderating comments on that blog post is apparently approving only the positive remarks too, mine was less full of glee and wasn't approved, even the comments aren't impartial now.
"This means some pages better suited to the results will now be unavailable from page one, correct?"
It was an honest question, apparently one they don't want asked.
