You deride me for making a bad comparison (YP+plumbing+plumber listing manipulation vs Google+news+news search result manipulation) and yet you try to do the same but can't remember the details?
I remember that there was a section at the start of the YP dedicated to large advertisements. However, it didn't look like the listings at all. This is comparable to what Google currently does with ads by putting them alongside the search results in clearly marked boxes.
However the actual YP listings were, as Pendergast stated, in alphabetical order. Yes there were ads embedded in the listings, but again, they didn't look the same as the listings themselves (nor change the ordering of them).
