Great explanation I read that Google now pay-2-play are results with shopping [searchengineland.com...]
Now with results with lot of money Google do pay-2-play but silent, Panda and Penguin to punish small sites. More money Google made from large brands and large brand advertiser of Google, so they get traffic from Google. Google no care about organic serp with many ads show, most main focus is user use ads, not organic.
Small/medium business' need to be given the opportunity to participate and not be given up for dead as MC indicated, when he stated that those folks in large verticals may as well give up and go build in niche areas.
"Should" no matter, becase Google care about Google and money making ads. I no long love Google, now only ads and advertiser on top serp.
