WordPress “sponsored result”

Filed under: — Carthik @ 6:29 am

Searching google for WordPress returns the usual results, and a Sponsored Link on the right, which points to the WordPress home page. Wonder who is paying for the ad.

Since http://wordpress.org is the first result returned for the search, it seems rather wasteful to have the sponsored result display on this search result page. It would be nice to have it turn up for searches for other terms (evil thoughts are blooming in my mind right now :) ).


  1. That’s odd I don’t see the sponsored results

  2. When I search, I get a sponsored result linking to the ‘recommended hosts’ wordpress.org page, which isn’t too crazy.
