Google's Marissa Mayer Calms AOL Concerns

Since we found out that Google would keep AOL as a syndication partner, rumors started spreading about the new revised relationship between Google and AOL. Some thought that Google would boost AOL's content in the SERPs and some also thought that Google would go the evil route and show graphical ads in the SERPs. Due to all of these rumors, Marissa Mayer (no relation to Tim Mayer of Yahoo!) headed over to the Google blog to talk a bit about the AOL announcement.

She basically squashes the rumor about graphic ads;

here will be no banner ads on the Google homepage or web search results pages. There will not be crazy, flashy, graphical doodads flying and popping up all over the Google site. Ever.

But she does admit that they will work with AOL to make the site and content more search engine friendly (didn't get too specific about the current issues but how can she). She also said that AOL has always been a part of Google's OneBox results and will continue to be.

Anyway, the forum discussion is at our forum under the title Google Clears Up AOL Rumors and Fears.
