Google Book Search Results in Organic Results?

Sep 24, 2007 - 6:50 am 1 by

Google BooksOver the past week I was tracking a thread at WebmasterWorld that suggested Google was ranking their own book results in the top results.

I have seen many examples early on, and they included searches for building wealth and neckties, as well as some others. Yes, results were coming up on page one for those searches.

But today they do not. In fact, they have grown to be less of a 'problem' as soon as the first report came out.

Although, books in general due rank well, it is not Google's Book search results that rank well. For example, this Google book search results is now on page four, which is fine by me.

Building Weath Google

Same with a search on neckties, the results that were on the first page, are now on the fourth page:

Neckties Google Book

I agree with WebmasterWorld administrator, Tedster:

The phenomnon that started this thread seems to have calmed down - as far as I'm concerned, Google is welcome to play with page 4 on down all they need to.

This is not to be confused with the top image on the right. Those are special universal results, where Google dynamically brings in their books database into the main web search results. The results above are about Google indexing and displaying Google book landing pages in the main web search results.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld and now Search Engine Watch Forums.
