Shopping via Google?

Just heard (on radio) that Google is now[?] going to show paid ads for results. This means you will see large companies and those willing to pay G; not smaller companies or those unwilling to pay G - including not Amazon, who refuses to pay. Radio suggests shop local, do pre-look-ups (for price comparison or availability) via company name.

Me, I'll stick with duckduckgo, which also does not track or tag my searches.

RE: Shopping via Google?

Thanks for the heads up. It's up to us the users what we choose to click on.
I saved the duckduckgo site and I've been using it.
Things change when we make the changes.
