I search in Google Search for Pizza Hut, say. What I get back is:
I consider first and second results (pointed to by arrows) as identical. I want to know whether Google get paid if I click on the first one. I don’t want it to get paid and so I have been taking pains to click the second one. But it is a nuisance that I would be happy to avoid.
I am willing to click on the first result as long as Google doesn’t get paid for it. How to find out?
Note: This post isn’t indicative of anything against Google. I just don’t like advertisements (read ‘marketing’)!
