It just occurred to me that Google may not be all it’s cracked up to be. I’ll show you what I mean.
I want to search for this URL:
So I turn to a trusty (no sarcasm intended) search engine and enter this search string:
“UK venture capital firm Connect Yorkshire is running”
which is the opening sentence of the blog post. Fair enough?
MSN Search, on the other hand, returns both the exact URL and the category as the second and third results on the first page – bingo! Furthermore, the link “Show more results from “energyorbit.com”” gives the relevant categories AND the page number URL. In contrast Google’s “Similar pages” displays nothing, not even the original search result.
Looks like Google’s presence has forced Microsoft into creating a better search engine. Ah… the genius of competition…
