but really when you think about it it all makes sense.
More random organic listings means that more businesses will be forced to bid for adwords driving revenue up. The effect is that adwords listings become more relevant than the organic listings. More clicks for google. Searchers will start giving adwords even more importance.
So to summarise:
- adwords demand rises by more businesses bidding
- more clicks from searchers looking for relevant results
- searchers start giving adwords more importance - in the past they used to turn a blind eye on them, now they will turn a blind eye on organic listings
What is amazing is that we are letting them get away with this. Class action suit against google?
