Google demotes Chrome in search results
After Google blundered an attempt to pay bloggers to publish low-quality posts related to its Chrome browser, the search giant penalized itself by pushing the Chrome browser further down its results list when a user searches for the term "browser." Google said it was a violation of its own Webmaster guidelines, because Google prohibits paying for links, under the risk of having their search results demoted. Google swallowed its own medicine and demoted its own Chrome browser from the top of its search results.
