Old issue, but possibly new news: Searching on Google for "Yahoo email privacy" returns, as the first result, a link for Gmail's privacy policy. That's silly. The user is obviously looking for Yahoo! email, not Gmail. Bad Google.

A search on Yahoo for "Yahoo email privacy" returns Yahoo results first. A search on Yahoo for "Gmail privacy" or "Google email privacy" returns Gmail results first.

A few months back, Google was taken to task for promoting its own services when users searched for blogs, calendars and other tools.
