It looks like Google is starting to display a new search box for searches related to online dating and personals. The results appear to be a combination of scraped profiles from leading dating sites and Google Base.

It will be interesting to see what other category-specific searches Google comes up with in the near future, and what impact they'll have on webmasters.

Oddly I was talking with a company recently who are expanding in to this area...

They are a radio business both online and terrestrial.. they have been buying up radio stations but also expanding on there online dating business as one seems to be feeding off the other...

I would have thought they were different core businesses but according to their own market research it is an combination that is working very well ...
