"MySpace.com is a widely acknowledged leader in user-generated content and incorporating search and advertising furthers our mission of making the world's information universally accessible and useful."

They may be able to make information on MySpace easily accessable, but I don't think even google can make anything posted on there useful...

Does this mean that MySpace won't be as annoyingly full of ads? I doubt they'll do text only there, but a clean google ad interface would be much nicer.

What are the chances MySpace will be dead by the fourth-quater or 2007? It sounds risky to me, making deals into 2010 with a fickle site like MySpace.

Man. Google has partnered with Nike, Real, AOL, MTV, and now Fox? I'd say they are now past the point of being merely tainted, and are now firmly entrenched in the realms of corporate Evil.

Heh? Do you mind elaborating on how these ad/content distribution deals and, with AOL, partial ownership, constitute "evil" in your opinion, Personman? Or are you satisfied with just dissing Google and leaving it at that?

There is an error, because it's not Gamestat but GamestatS.com > The owner of Gamestat.com is happy at this time, sure :-)

Google recently patend a technique for a "system and method for supporting editorial opinion in the ranking of search results". This looks like a good way to be able serve up search results to those millions of myspace users.

Google's cut is the search data :) and the knowledge that MySpace is Google's territory and not Yahoo's or Microsoft's.
