    Wow and they say that Bing replicates their results, what does Google have to say about this “NEW” layout? Bing has been using this layout for quite sometime now!!!!

    “Go with the flow?” What the hell is that?.

    Why not just admit that having ads at the bottom with the ant-sized “Ads” at the right side is better able to deceive users into thinking that they are google search results.

    Next expansion – Left column ads
    Final expansion – Freeze all ad regions to always be visible with slider/scrollbar for organic results. Then finally show organic only when user clicks ‘Expand to show other results’ button.

    Yep,and that they key issue. How many people know that they are clicking on ads??? FTC where are you?
    Among many other things it takes even more clicks away from organic searches, as if Panda wasn’t enough.

    If it is being said that ads at bottom perform better, does this imply that people go beyond top 3 or top 5 results. As users will go to results upto 10th only then they will be viewing bottom ads. Or if they want to go to 2nd or 3rd page of results.

    i think Google adwords is encouraging the top high paying advertisers only as there can be a few ads placed on the bottom as compared to the right hand side.
