are the google results showing up in the aol software search results as well or just on their website?

Good question - aol'ers?

They are today. They weren't Thursday and I'm not sure about yesterday.

It started on thursday. It is pure google and the newest database. It say on the page "powered by Google". Not enhanced like those results we saw early in the week.
We are seeing quite a lot of new traffic so far.

You mean AOL users have a different search vehicle than what is seen at aol.com? Those searches are still just "enhanced" by Google and definitely are not pure google results.

We were wondering about the default search function in the Aol Browser. Where's that go?

Brett and everybody, I am an AOL member and I have been getting Google results from within AOL itself for about 3 or so days now, very consistently.

I have an AOL account and I'm still seeing "Enhanced by Google", not "Powered by Google". Since AOL doesn't provide the option of returning more than 10 results at a time, I'm wondering how that will effect Google Adwords. Since the Google database was implemented on AOL, I've seen no paid ads at all. Will AOL return 10 Google results in addition to the paid listings? Will the ads appear on the right, as they do now on Google?

So what are we seeing here? Is it simply that fact that most Aol'ers have already discovered Google and using Google direct from Google.com?
That would sure explain why AOL was eager to get Google on Aol to try and get back some traffic for search.aol before they lost it all.

I suppose that's right. Sooner or later everyone hears about Google, which means AOL users abandon Inktomi after the first Google experience. Which explains why everyone's watching Yahoo's next move. It will be interesting.
