*Impact of National Court Decisions Onto Search Engines

IDue to the fact we kind of grew up with the web and its search engines it is difficult how some things could be different from the way the web is now.

Thanks to the input of Austrotrabant’s reader Pablo A. Palazzi, editor of the Blog Delitos Informaticos I’d like to present how search engines look in Argentina: Partly censored and some searches are displayed without ads [sic!].

About censorship in Argentina:

For more information about this issue please refer to Searchengineland or the OpenNet Initiativ or TechDirt.

About Image Search Results without Ads:

When searching for “nintendo wii” on Google in Argentina you will see an “ordinary” Google SERP, including Top- and Side-Ads.

Please note that no ads are however displayed next to the Image Search results:

Anyone able to come up with a good explanation for that?

    But are there versions of Google Images coming with ads?
    I am a French user, and I do not remember seeing ads along with image results.

      Dear Cédric,

      Thank you for your comment. Yes, you are right, there are no ads being displayed on the Google Image Search when using google.fr.

      For Google.at, .de and .com, -using an Austrian IP-adress- there are (Top-) Ads being displayed.

      Please see also e.g. the first screenshot of my post from the 4th of January 2010 “*’Explanatory Ads’ by Google” under http://wp.me/pvR3k-nM.

      Kind regards,
