    Is it true that websites that pay google money, will end up in the top of the ranking when doing a search?

    Google's pay service is Adsense. In no way does this service reflect what is displayed in its search results. Adsense allows you to be put in the sponsered links section of the page. Unlike, msn, yahoo and numerous other search engine, google doesn't like to polute their results with junk.

    Btw have you used google's new book service? They are borrowing books from various universites and scanning them online so you can quickly search through them.

    Here is an example of "War and Peace":

    It is currently in beta, but looking very promising

    *sigh* just now we and a friend had a 3 hour discussion that Heisenberg proved that when a tree falls in an empty forest it won't make a sound, since humans create their own reality :uhh: ...he's still in the process of learning I'm always right, but enough on that :rolleyes: it would be a boring world if there would be noone to disprove you :tongue:

    Heh, there is no point in being right unless there is someone around to be wrong!

    A man goes deep into the forest where his wife/gf cannot hear him.
    If he voices an opinion...
    Is he still wrong?

    Google seems to be coming up with alot of new services everytime. I guess that is what will google above the other emerging engines.


    I am trying to understand where the other posts after the google thing are leading. I'm totally lost.

    This Google Print sounds like they are saying "hey, now you can search for books on amazon.com and from already accessible online libraries straight from your trusted name in online searching service: GOOGLE!!!!" :biggrin:

    Google's pay per placement is called adwords, adsense is the technology behind the text ads here. Think of it as adwords is for the advertisers and adsense is for the publishers. Also something to remember is that fact that adword campaigns don't affect the normal search index. It only affects how it's shown in the "sponsored link" column on google.
