Mountain View,
Calif.
– Google (NASD: GOOG) appears to have
shifted the bulk of its new music streaming links on search results to
MySpace-owned iLike, pushing Lala — recently acquired by Apple (NASD: AAPL) — lower in the
queue, according to reports by TechCrunch and PaidContent. A number of links to
streaming music services are typically presented when a user searches for a
song, but it seems that now News Corp.’s (NYSE: NWS) MySpace is favored, whereas before the ranking was
more random. PaidContent found 19 of 20 songs it searched for on Google linking
to MySpace streams, while TechCrunch was directed to MySpace for 28 of 30 songs
it searched.
