It seems that folks over at Google have been keeping a secret from the world. When you search for products on Google , the results aren’t done by “relevance.” at all. (ignore the drop down that tells you it is.) The shopping results are paid ads and the highest bidder wins the top spot in your results. This practice started on May 31, 2012 with little fan fair by Google of course.
Naturally the folks at Microsoft were all to quick to point this out and run with the phrase Scroogled so you would use Bing not Google for your search queries. But it’s true so…thanks for the heads up Microsoft!
