Unhappy How does the Small Business Compete Now-a-days???

MSN would like to quickly direct you to the correct area that suits your business needs. If you are interested in getting your business listed now, please choose the appropriate option below:

MSN currently offers keyword-targeting search results in the "Sponsored Sites" section of the search results page at the top and bottom of the page. These are link placements that are limited to three paid clients per keyword and are available to advertisers with a minimum annual spend of $75,000. Please visit the Featured Sites section for more information.

MSN has partnered with Overture to provide businesses a quick and easy option for including their link in the "Sponsored Sites" sections of the search results page. Please visit the Overture with MSN section for more information.

Understandably, that it is the advertisers who keep the Search Engines Competative and able to generate revenue to improve themselves

BUT----BUT----BUT----


Is it not non-understandable - that out of frustration - some Web masters may be tempted to engage in "White Hat" Cloaking to get their organic results higher if they are permanantly upstaged by companies that have an almost
"Bottomless" budget for PPC - and can ALWAYS bid for the top spots.

The recent "OUT-ing" of Google's cloaking experiment shows that this is not limited to the small-guy.

But some search engines will "BLEND" the sponsor listings to appear like organic results

Take a look at Askjeeves, Altavista etc if this is not intentional deception -WHAT IS

Now look at Lycos - They SAY web results - but what it REALLY is...


Quote:
Lycos Web Results are brought to you by Ask Jeeves search technology. Ask Jeeves's results are relevant and on-target, designed to give you what you're looking for. In addition, Looksmart's editorally-reviewed results are within the first ten results if relevant. The web results also includes paid inclusion brought to you by Looksmart and Legacy Partnersite (FAST). To find more information about the paid inclusion program please visit http://insite.lycos.com or http://www.looksmart.com.
