41% of Google’s First Page Contains Links to Google Products via @MattGSouthern

A new study has shown that 41% of the content on a Google page redirects to something related to Google. Google has responded to this report by claiming that these are features designed to help the users. Our take away is that Google wants us to stay on their website longer and keep us dependent on their services. Whether you think Google has good intentions or not, you’re welcome to read the report and decide for yourself.

Key Takeaways:

  • A recent study has shown that 41% of what is found on a Google search page redirects to something that Google has a part of.
  • Google responded to the study by saying that redirects for more Google searches shouldn’t be considered a Google product and instead is meant to help the user.
  • While Google claims to have good intentions, it seems obvious that Google doesn’t want you to leave their engine so fast.

“It was found that a user would have to scroll nearly halfway down the page before getting the first organic result.”
