go.com is displaying results from Google. Is there a Google/Disney relationship?

Wow, that's news to me!

They even have Adwords listed at the top instead of Overture!

Nice find, thanks!

Wonder if this means they are trying to get people to use the search feature again...? :)

hmm.. seems to be exactly the same as Google except for one listing - mine! (usually 3 to 4) though a sub page come up at around 35 or so.

What HAVE I done to p-off Mickey? :)

Last time I looked they were using Dogpile. Does anyone go to Go.com anymore?

Here's the official announcement from Disney
[biz.yahoo.com ]

Google to provide results for several Disney web properties.

an agreement through which Google will provide several Disney web properties with Google's search technology and highly relevant sponsored links. Google's web-wide search results and sponsored links are available now to Go.com visitors. Additionally, Google will power site-specific searches and provide sponsored links on Disney.com, Movies.com and FamilyFun.com beginning in the Spring.

These are very different results than Google. Sites are dropped for no apparent reason. My listing for two keywords is down ten spots. Very strange.

LOL i saw something funny. THe Go.com search has a VERY heavy adult filter on it. One that would put ATW's filter to shame. But at the same time, an adult search returns one adult adword ad. Looks like the Adwords editors forgot to mark it as adult DOH!

Does this mean at the next SEW, Google will be giving out Mickey with a Google jersey.

Loved the Google pens this year.

GG - How about giving Matt some to bring to pub con. We can turn out all the lights at the pub and have miniature light saber battles.

taking a look at the results for a few of my sites, i'd say that for the go.google.com results, they're dropping anything that may be even remotely adult/mature content. i kinda narrowed down one site in particular in a search but the results for that search only produced a couple pages that didnt have a particular link (with certain anchor text) .. hence my conclusion

Yikes! 10 AdWords listings at top. They aren't shy.
10:04 pm on Mar 10, 2003 (gmt 0)



My keywords on the front of google.com are not the same at go.com.
When I do searches on go.com for them go.com has the Google news listings showing up instead.

I'm glad they are using Google now. But I gotta say...
Disney sure has done everything wrong until now. Remember when Infoseek was the jewel of the internet?

I could be wrong, but it looks to me like with the google-powered go results:

IF your Adword ad appears (at top)
THEN your editorial listing is NOT displayed.

Ouch!

I'm seeing listings for the same site in both places.

At least in my case though an adwords penalty would make sense why my site is down ten slots when my ad appears.

Yup. Appears I was wrong. Must have been the dance. Relieved!
