Google not following its own algo?

Something Suganthi had wondered about in a personal mail – search for company names like Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo etc in Google and the first search result will contain 3 or 4 most probably the most visited/relevant URLs.

Screenshots for some of the searches below :

yahoo

microsoft

apple

I don’t know how/why Google does this but whne I searched for Google itself in Google, the results page was different. Now, why this difference?

    Google.com is not a portal of any sort.
    All it has is a bunch of searches and services but no content as such.
    Imagine the number of scripts / main-pages at Google.com and compare it with Microsoft.com OR apple.com OR yahoo.com

    Santhosh, thanks for stopping by.

    Though Google varies with respect to other companies as you say, they can easily have links to their important/high-traffic sites like say gmail.google.com, adwords.google.com etc in a clubbed fashion like what they do for others.
