Given that I wonder what the attitude of other search engines will be to indexing pages that include an ad for Adwords, which basically the "Ads from Google" link is? There are a few search engines that would say that as direct competition, including ATW and AV (Overture properties) and some as less direct competition (MSN etc).
Well, those other search engines list pages from About.com, which owns Sprinks and displays Sprinks PPC listings on every page of its "guidesites."
If a search engine were to exclude pages that displayed ads served by competitors, the search engine wouldn't stay in business very long.
