According to the recent announcement of Google and AOL, Marissa Mayer, VP of Search Product & User Experience, made commitments to serve us the best result without biased ones (to AOL or other partnerships). We might see more results from AOL because a main goal lead to. This goal is to organize all the world"s information. AOL is a part of them. Anyway, nothing is going to be biased at all. Google just lets AOL understand how the Google crawler works aka Search Engine Optimization in detail.
I hope to see the improvements soon. It was $1 Billion for a 5% Stake in AOL.
