Today, we’re announcing the availability of a new online advertising solution to help local businesses connect with potential customers in their area. Boost enables business owners to easily create online search ads from directly within their Google Places account. No ongoing management is needed after the initial set up, and this beta is currently available to select local businesses in San Francisco, Houston and Chicago.

The image in that blogspot post shows that Google is happy with the top 80% of the page NOT containing the #1 naturally ranking site.

When #1 is at the bottom of page 1 the value of Google to publishers diminishes, unless they wish to pay of course. yuck.
