With a seemingly ever expanding range of services being offered by Google we thought it might be interesting to see what keywords Google itself is dominating the search results with – for both organic SEO and Paid Search (PPC). 

The list below shows the keywords that Google has in first position in its own results.  For maximum impact , try to read just the blue keywords first:

As expected there are  high rankings for generic keywords but  interestingly they are  bidding on terms such as ‘business directory’, which seems a little surprising bearing in mind that not too long ago Google had a “witch hunt “against all directories.  It seems that now though, Google itself is interested in that market.
