    Google - the worst search engine.

    "In recent search engine comparison tests, Google consistently puts relevant search results low in page rankings, hiding them on page 3 or 4 of the results, while all the other search engines correctly put those same results on page 1..
    ...If you don't believe Google is the worst, try a few comparative searches of your own..."

    Google is the best.MSN is the worst. Yahoo does a decent job.
    Google's software does a page ranking based on the links the website has in other
    sites. That's called Google bombing. It's not Google, but the companies that misuse
    this feature!! This is the truth, believe me. Even Digit magazine carried an article on
    this called 'Google Bombing'.

    Google, a search engine of very few words, but excellent results.

    Need I say more ???





    P.s. For all those who don't understand what the word "words" is hinted at, it means obtrusive advertisements.

    I've been always using Google for all my treasure hunts.. And, believe me, It's one cool search engine! I've tried MSN, it's not bad though, but results are half as irrelevant! I'd rather not talk about Yahoo!

    You Google loathers out there, the reason you don't get relevant search results is because you don't queue in the right input the right way! I love Google!

    it depends actually on what u r searching for. sometimes google gives better result, sometimes yahoo. its all about ppl's preference. but google hasn't gained 50% market share for nothing.right?

    Google is more than just a search engine. A few tests will not dislodge it from the numero uno position.
