Bing launched a huge campaign against Google complete with full-page newspaper advertisements, commercials on television and a shiny new website, scroogled.com, to draw attention to the changes Google made. The home page of the site explains their beef with Google: “In the beginning, Google preached, ‘Don’t be evil’-but that changed on May 31, 2012. That’s when Google Shopping announced a new initiative. Simply put, all of their shopping results are now paid ads.
Google search results , according to Bing is ‘Scroogled”
In the beginning, Google preached, “Don’t be evil“—but that changed on May 31, 2012. That’s when Google Shopping announced a new initiative. Simply put, all of their shopping results are now paid ads.
In their under-the-radar announcement, Google admits they’ve now built “a purely commercial model” that delivers listings ranked by “bid price.” Google Shopping is nothing more than a list of targeted ads that unsuspecting customers assume are search results. They call these “Product Listing Ads” a “truly great search.”
We say that when you limit choices and rank them by payment, consumers get Scroogled. For an honest search result, try Bing.
Don’t get Scroogled this holiday season.

Now the same complaint is leveled against Bing.
“I’ve been one of the biggest critics about Google’s change, which has indeed been largely under-the-radar,” says Danny Sullivan, an SEO expert and the former editor of Search Engine Land. “Unfortunately, Bing is hardly in a position to be lecturing Google about poor disclosure and charging for listings, when it has the same issues.”
He published an in-depth piece that explains what Google has changed about its Shopping section and compares how the two search engines disclose information to consumers.
“No matter who’s doing it, search engines forcing businesses to pay for inclusion on their shopping sites without clearly indicating that to consumers is wrong,” says Ali Husayni, the CEO of Sinai Marketing.(master google.com)
Let us look at how search results are delivered.
Search Engines deliver by Crawling based on Key word and some more Algorithms.
The result are determined by the Content, ,Key words and good tagging.
It is also true that these alone do not make your site or writing to show up in the top results for a Search.
One can find inaccurate information, some times even irrelevant to the query as a result in top results.
May be this has something to do with set Algorithms.
This can not be avoided.
Either the results are due to content, tagging and key words-some times written artificially to draw traffic.
Here also theer is no check/
The other is the Search engines promote Paid content/ads.
This is business.
You can not avoid it.
One point is certain,.
If the result of a search gives you a bad content, one makes sure he does not visit the site again and he refines the search and goes to the other results.
