Searching for Google?

Google

So you think you found what you’re looking for using Google? Think again! Better still, search again using another search engine. It looks like Google may not be playing fair. It seems that Google is promoting a more limited set of results drawn from Google+ ahead of more relevant ones you would get from using Google’s organic search algorithm.

Food for thought when searching online.



As Rudyard Kipling said in his poem contained in his short story, The Elephant’s Child,

“I keep six honest serving-men (They taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who.” – Rudyard Kipling

It pays to approach search engines with the same inquisitive mind it seems.
