    Sounds like a good idea–pretty much like other ads that expand and take over the page and click on them.

    I’m sure that some site owners will complain that the expanded ads hide the organic results, but for the site owner, that’s no worse than having a user click on a conventional ad and being sent away from the SERP.

    The growth of branded vertical search engines (Amazon, eBay etc.) have been growing much faster than horizontal engines such as Google for some time. This richer interactive experience with tools such as narrowing is what users are looking for when shopping rather than 10 blue links.

    Same, same. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. And Google is cashing it all in.

    now I think Google should start showing organic results at right hand side instead of paid text ads.
