Nyaha! It sure is. After many months of praising google and it's gloryness for being one of the greatest Internet companies out there, I couldn't help but do a little snooping. It'd be cool if you had a look at this site Google-Watch (http://google-watch.org/). Go through and read it well. It'l make you think twice the next time you want to google.. So you remember the time you typed in "Avril Lavigne Pr0n" in google?.. yap, they still know. It might come back to haunt you one day :D Have a nice life :P

Yes, the simplicity is quite nice. It doesn't have all those extra links and stuff like Yahoo! nor does it load as slow as the MSN servers.

Hehe, it's the other way aroung. Yahoo is powered by google. I'm not sure if it's the databases only, or the actual entire search thingo.

Google ain't the best, it ain't the worst. Can't expect anything more.
Google is the best, which worries me a lot too because I love using it. It has all the good stuff for the low end website surfurs, but it sucks for webmasters. Their spiders are creating a lot of traffic too which might annoy people, but you do get practically every new page on the internet within 2 days. I have to admit that is awsome, but still privacy is a huge concern for me.

Google is far and away the most advanced, and acurate, search engine ever crafted.
And there's not a thing that can change that.
So I'll keep using it.

Actually, from what I've heard, the technology they use isn't nearly as up to date as the technology Yahoo!, etc use. =/

But they remain to be the most popular just because they're the most well known, and not to mention that they're simple to use.

There is nothing wrong with using Google in my opinion.

Yes there are privacy issues, but basically all search engines do that, even site trackers and counters get that sort of information anyway. You don't have to use Google anyway, but it's quick searching helps to provide better productivity for me.

I won't even search for pokemon pics on google anymore, no matter how accurate I try to be there's as much hentai as there is regular pics, even WITH moderate safesearch -_-;; Not to mention the nasty stuff I get when I search for almost anything on any subject, be it websites OR pictures...they really need better systems in that respect.

i've actually been there before even though it's a tech-site O.o;;

I thought that website explains how Google remains and keeps itself to be the best search engine, because in a way (super summarized:) it relies on other search engine and pretty much just combines all the others' results as its own... I think... it maybe wrong since I read it months ago and currently my mind is stuck in YGO, OST download and French. But whatever... google gives me my free stuff aka my life so google = "I'm using it!"

EDIT: not google's fault there's Pokemon hentai... blame the hentai artist, not the search engine you know... o.o;

And you can always ignore the hentai... it's not that hard to pass up. x.X

You know, if you take of safesearch, every letter you type gets you porn. I don't use image search. If you want pics of something, go to web search and type " Whatever image gallery" and it gets good results. It's always workd for me so far.

I have never used another search engine other than Google. In my opinion Google is the best search engine ever!
And Google is kinda like a dictionary all I type is opinoion and it said "did you mean opinion?"

Any search engine will probably pull that up, nyah. The image search I usually dont have problems with even with safe search off. o_o;

Your search terms must be very accurate. "pokemon+ash+clothes on or I'll kill you+and+pikachu"

You know back in 1999, 75% of the internet was porn. It probably still is..

Just saying what I've heard, I don't care to waste my time doing research on which search engine is more advanced. Google gets me what I want, so bleh.

aaaaaa
July 11th, 2004, 12:39 AM
I just think it's kid've important to research something before claiming it, even if it is something you just 'heard'.
Google is actually kinda cool, cause it doesn't rate a page based on hits, or on how much they get paid by them.
It uses a kind've reputation system, based on how many other sites link to a site.
Pages will the most reputation have the most impact when it comes to effecting the status of other sites.
Getting a link from Slashdot or Microsoft's homepage will weigh alot heavier in how high your site lists in search results which apply to it, than say a link from Janies Gurlpages Site.

It's kinda cool, IMO.
