As we've changed the blog yesterday, let me introduce the comment that we've got in the previous blog;

A comment from Mike;
"One problem will be that advertisers and partners will rise to the top of search results. It might be better to have a search engine which is not so heavily influenced by advertisers.

Another place where search seems to be poor is in the political realm. I should be able to easily figure out what my representatives stand for and how they voted and why in a simple fashion."

Very interesting point, I think. There are many ways to make your blogs rise high as searching results (I don't know yet how exactly I should act, though), but the effect of advertisers might have anther purpose to do it other than the users' real desire.

But I think one of the point to discuss is, who should be responsible to be influential for the searching results. Does anyone have anything to say?
