---- Google's treatment of their own websites: Do as I say, not as I do

There are worst examples, wiki answers comes to mind right away.
Not really a google property, but a perfect example of how a page with one sentence and bazillions of ads could rank just fine.
All good examples that google manipulates the results, not only to punish, but also to shield certain websites from the algo.
I'd bet that the user data for any Frommers page in the SERPs is probably very strong.
Huh? I would leave that page right away and I bet the majority of people would too. It actually took me a minute to realize there is something else there besides ads...The website may feed on the printed guides' popularity, but it certainly is no match.
