Unexpected results

4 April 2008
Categories: Uncategorized

Google reports the following results for the term “search engine”:

    1. AltaVista
    2. Dogpile
    3. Wikipedia’s article on “Web search engine”
    4. Yahoo
    5. An optimization company
    6. A CBC Radio show called “Search Engine”
    7—11. More optimization companies
    13. Live Search
    14. Mamma Metasearch
    15. Google… UK!

What’s going on here? Are the optimization companies starting to figure out Google’s arcane secrets, or is it that Google’s expanding horizons are distancing it from its search engine roots?
