I think Google already killed organic search. It's better to focus efforts on a social presence with a viewing audience that judges not on who pays the most to be listed, but who has the best information, thoughts and products that are worth sharing. No, I am not talking about investing money, time and effort into G+. I see how Google treated us in search, and I won't let that happen again with G+.
Google's over-commercialization of search, and the extreme preference they give to their own properties and close allies, should be an opportunity in the making for new entrants. Although Google would try to stop any competition in search, it is so desperately needed. If a new company comes along and follows the path Google was once on, the free flow of information may be able to continue in an innovative search product that is not so extraordinarily financially biased.
