If you search for a specific product name, then why shouldn't Google show the brands for that product
@goodroi - They should [ maybe i was unclear, apologies ] - let me put it this way :
No 1 : Product domain / actual business - this is the actual brand
Top slots : All brand resellers with reviews - I'm talking your major website brands.
No other consideration appears to be there. There really is no variety, there's only so many reviews a person can read. And the one's with the most reviews wins.
Surely, some day Google will adjust to the next quality score indicator. But no idea at present as to what that might be.
