@Aoe2913 that was my first thought and I laughed a bit when I read the headline. Who didn't expect this?
You don't even have to look as far as Panda to see how they are squeezing publishers. By adding the images, Youtube results, and G News higher in the SERPS they are guaranteed to keep people on their website longer for ad views.
Then when you look at what they are testing with .co.kr (all the different types of results on the first page of the results), you can easily see what they are trying to eventually accomplish.
G has went down hill ever since they opened up their shares to the public.
