Only 13% Of Google.com Shows Actual Search Results
Aaron Harris of Tutorspree did the math, and it turns out that on a 13-inch Macbook Air, a mere 13% of Google’s results page are dedicated to results when searching “auto mechanic.” Meaning more than twice that space is spent on ads—yielding almost four times the number of links.
Imagine that in any other context—maybe a TV show in which the commercials were the main attraction—and it’s beyond absurd.
Damn the algorithms. Damn them.
