google is an amazing company. I’m really quite blown away by what they’ve built and continue to build.
Yet somehow, despite all the sophisticated search engine algorithms and computing power, I frequently see results from yahoo answers on my SERP #1.
You’re probably still laughing, but it bears repeating that “yahoo answers” is worse than useless. It is a time waster and the nonsense they allow to be published is frequently misleading.
How a great company like google can allow this is worth contemplating.
If you don’t want to contemplate google’s search engine nuances, at least remember to include -yahoo.com and / or
-yahoo.ca in your search queries. That way you’ll exclude the crap from yahoo answers.
