Blogs annoy Google advertisers?

Robert Scobles talks to “sources” and writes: “Google is getting a lot of pressure from its advertisers to ‘devalue’ webloggers and push them down. The fact that when you search for ‘NEC Tablet’ and you find me, for instance, might really piss off NEC. Since NEC advertises on Google, Google has more reason to listen to them than it does to listen to me.” The challenge for Google: why should a Google advertiser pay $1 a click when a blogger can have the top slot (and lots of free clicks) in the regular index?
