How long the public will remain happy being served Google-on-a-plate remains to be seen, but if results as bad as some I have seen lately haven't shifted them, I reckon they'll go on eating it for some time yet.
My thoughts too. I think Google are really onto a winner here. They've got an entrenched, established search market share that is happy to shift from organic clicking to ad clicking, and now they're just dialing up the ad clicks slowly but surely. People aren't going anywhere in the next few years at least, and while the big brands win all this traffic, they can reinvest their extra profits into stellar content / website improvements, giving Google even more reason to continue to rank the brands well.
