The Google Health Ads blog posted an attempt to get healthcare companies to pay for ads to be placed on Sicko SERPs. From their post:
We can place text ads, video ads, and rich media ads in paid search results or in relevant websites within our ever-expanding content network. Whatever the problem, Google can act as a platform for educating the public and promoting your message. We help you connect your company’s assets while helping users find the information they seek.
That's right folks. Google is not a search engine, but a platform where various entities can educate each other. It's best if the education happens to be ads that add to Google's bottom line. As TechCrunch put it, "antagonizing Moore may well see Google become a larger target at a time the search giant is in the spotlight over its Double Click acquisition."
What do you think?
