So I’m either way late or way early or just flat out missing something, but I just was on MySpace and I tried a search without specifying a site-search (i.e. full web search). I was looking for the page for The Shins, which I could probably guess the URL for in about 10 seconds but I was being lazy and figured I’d do a site-search and click the link… Anyhow, I came to this results page which is basically a huge Overture PPC page with no organic results whatsoever.
1) Were they not using Google up until recently to feed both sponsored and organic search ads?
2) Wow with all those sponsored ads they must be making a fortune!
