Google is really doing a job on natural search today.

First for many search queries the top 4 results are the same site

Next the natural results are pushed down by 500 px of PPC ads with expanded product listings and site links.

Happy ending followed by Froogle.

This sucks.

The best part is froogle has as many cheaters as organic has spammers. We sell industrial parts in bulk. Some are used by consumers. By regulation if we sell screws with a 500 pc minimum we must list the price as 500 x 40 cents or 200. There are sites that violate this get tossed, abide by the rules for a week and do it again so they can appear first on price sorts. I'm thinking froogle has about two people that work on checking these things.

Another one of those "we can automate this process" areas of google fallen flat.
