Rupert Murdoch called Google the biggest copyright infringer in the world. At that time I was thinking about YouTube. Sure, but now this!
Having the direct answer might prevent some searchers from clicking through to any of these. But with the answer already in some of the page descriptions, they probably weren’t clicking much already.
The above is from Danny's article. I think people may have clicked on the articles before Google put their best guess at the top of the page. If you need to source something, now rather than sourcing Wikipedia, you will source Google. What a coup for the Internet Giant!
Don't forget, Bing pays you to search on their service. I have made a little money (about $20) using their search in the past month. Not much, but Google never pays me to search, so I made an extra twenty bucks and got similar results.
