Google's new search service raises concerns

Google's new "search within a search" service raised concerns among online publishers, as the latter are afraid of fraud.

The new service provides users with specific information on sites like Wikipedia, NYT.com, WashingtonPost.com, Wal-Mart. It offers another search box within the created, thus giving more opportunity for detailed search.

The main concerns about the second search box are:

- it reveals Google ad, the revenues of which are not shared with publishers of the sites in question;

- it promotes rival sites;

- it offers Google-sponsored pages and avoids often directing to initial sites.

Google in its turn reported that it got a few complaints and had to turn off the function for those sites.
