They all want your money

Looks like Google are finally going to go head to head with eBay and Amazon.

The thing that interests me is the phrase ' the feature will appear alongside paid search ads, but not "organic" search results. ' .  Does this mean the vendors is going to  pay Google to be put at the top of the search results? If so it will totally destroy the validity of any searches as many results are ambiguous, to say the least, at the moment. However if this is the case, Google will find any reason to prioritise their paying customers on any search results to increase their revenue .
Will have to look for a better search engine then. Sad

Re: They all want your money

so they are planning to expand the almost defunct platform of google wallet to generate some sales ?
I don't see the big problem here google is already under investigation for the way it displays results and that just got a lot worse for them with the latest search engine update that prioritises mobile results over non mobile stuff, if they keep going this way they will be bared from operating in the EU
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
