Search results – Organic vs Adwords

Confused? This is humanity’s normal state of being.

Google organic search results seem to be influenced by whether or not Google Adwords are running. “I thought that it said in the Google Bible that you couldn’t buy position in the organic search results, only in the sponsored ads section?”, I hear you say.

Well, http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/adwords/learningcenter/18911.html happily states:

“Search results appear on the left side of the page. It is important to note that Google does not accept payment to place websites or documents in search results. However, advertisers can purchase Google AdWords ads, which appear on the right side of the page, and sometimes above the search results.

What do you want me to do about it?
