Google recently released a new feature into their search empire, known by some as Search-within-Search. This new technology allows a user to search for a keyword pertaining to one of the popular online retailers or publishers that Google has identified, like Best Buy or The Washington Post, for example. When the search results are returned, a new search box appears right on this page allowing the seeker to search that site directly.
This seems innocent enough from a consumer's perspective. However, retailers and publishing houses alike are crying foul. Why? Because the new search technology keeps users on Google's pages while searching for items in the retailer's site, effectively ensuring that the user is seeing Google's placed advertisements. To make matters worse, these advertisements are often times for competing companies or publishers.
For example, when I searched Google for the phrase "Best Buy," I got the following as my top search result:

A new war of words has broken out over the diminutive "hobbit", whose fossilised remains were found in a cave on a remote Indonesian island four years ago.
Ecstatic Australian scientists insisted at the time that they had unearthed powerful evidence of a previously-undiscovered human species who had lived on the island while mankind as we know it continued to develop in the "outside world".
But now an opposing group of Australian researchers say the tiny people on the island of Flores were not a separate branch of the human family tree after all, but were stunted Homo sapiens - early modern man - who did not grow because of iodine deficiency while in the womb.

A son who watched a video of his 51-year-old dad having sex with dogs was so shocked he reported him to police.
Lorry driver, Paul William Langton, filmed himself carrying out the "disgusting" behaviour with a black Labrador and a brown mongrel.
Following a row, his son – who had seen the video by chance – took the tape to a local police station.
Married Langton pleaded guilty to letting three male dogs have sex with him, between 1974 and 2004, at Leicester Crown Court.
Barbara Graham, prosecuting, said: "There were disturbing video images explicitly showing, and suggestive of, sexual acts with dogs."
He had allowed the dogs to have sex with him and been involved in other acts.
In interview, Langton, from Beaumont Leys, Leicestershire, said it had happened so long ago he had tried to blank it out of his mind because he knew it was wrong.
Judge Michael Pert QC said that although the offences were "disgusting" it did not mean, according to sentencing guidelines, they automatically qualified for a jail sentence.
The case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report to explore non-custodial options and possible treatment programmes.
Langton was remanded into custody to await sentencing next month.
After the court appearance, his 32-year-old son, who lives in Leicester but has a different surname and does not wish to be named, said his father was "rather sick and needs help".
"I used to have a pet dog and he used to look after it and take it for walks, but fortunately it was a bitch and I hope nothing happened," the son said.
"I don't know where he got the idea from in the first place – maybe he'd seen the film, Animal Farm or something horrible like that."
He said he handed over the video because his dad "was going around slandering me after we fell out over money".
"It's not as bad as child abuse, but an animal can never speak out however old it gets, so someone has to be their voice. That's another reason why I reported him," he added.
"One of the dogs was on a lead while my dad was bent over the sofa and couldn't escape."
He concluded: "I'm a bit ashamed that some people know I'm related to him. I hope he gets help and sorts himself out."
