A super affiliate friend of mine once told me that crappy content makes for better click throughs on their ads on the same page.
In unrelated news, Googles adwords income continues to rise.
I like it. Keep it up google, your doing good. People will never switch to bing no matter how bad you make the serps. Just keep feeding your own greed and arrogance. You are untouchable, go go go go!
Never mind 'across the river', searching in the UK on google.co.uk brings back lots of results from 'across the pond'.

8 Appendix A: Advertising and Mixed Motives
Since it is very difficult even for experts to evaluate search engines, search engine bias is particularly insidious. A good example was OpenText, which was reported to be selling companies the right to be listed at the top of the search results for particular queries [Marchiori 97]. This type of bias is much more insidious than advertising, because it is not clear who "deserves" to be there, and who is willing to pay money to be listed. This business model resulted in an uproar, and OpenText has ceased to be a viable search engine. But less blatant bias are likely to be tolerated by the market. For example, a search engine could add a small factor to search results from "friendly" companies, and subtract a factor from results from competitors. This type of bias is very difficult to detect but could still have a significant effect on the market. Furthermore, advertising income often provides an incentive to provide poor quality search results. For example, we noticed a major search engine would not return a large airline's homepage when the airline's name was given as a query....
“I would issue you all a kind of challenge to try any search you want on Bing and Google,” Ballmer said, explaining that 70% of the time, there won’t be any difference in the results, that 15% of the time, Bing will be better and 15% of the time, Google will be better.
People will never switch to bing no matter how bad you make the serps.
It won't have much (any?) impact until the mainstream media pick up on it.
According to a recent interview reported by Search Engine Land, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said that Bing and Google give the same results 70% of the time.
Microsoft is correct now. I don't believe this was the case a year ago.
These issues seem less of "bad sites clogging the index" and more of "we can no longer figure out what you're looking for".
but something about the "user intention" area seems to be getting a bit flaky.
