If you've read my articles somewhere on the Internet, expect something different here.

Interesting to see Steve suggest changing the search query to get better results. I recently wrote an article suggesting why we shouldn't always blame Google for 'irrelevant' search results:

Your Role in Search Engine Relevancy

Perhaps we also have a role to play too.

[...] Is Google a search engine based in Mountain View, CA (California, USA)? - was another good laugh from the week past… I just wonder WTF Seb get’s up to when he writes this stuff? Whatever it is, please send me a case bro. [...]

Andy, of course Google CSE & enterprise search are good results, from a marketer's perspective. OTOH, from a plain searcher's perspective, it's absolutely laughable that the world's leading search engine ranks dead services like Dogpile and Altavista above anything Google. That's IMHO way more obscene than a hand job. Disclosure: I *am* aware that Google states that their systems lack a method or apparatus to manually edit search results or rankings whatsoever. ;-)

As I pointed out to Danny recently, it is a better use of whatever juice they have not to rank for search engine. In fact Google CSE is a much better sarch result... but they need to fix a lot of links to the wrong page to do it, without funny parameters that get blocked by robots.txt. A lot of links to google.com home page are blocked by them by using parameters. Though they probably don't care too much, CSE and enterprise search should be what they concentrate their efforts on, not their home page for any reason whatsoever.

Searching for a search engine? Are you sure that didn't make a CPU somewhere explode?

Nice Vlad, but actually WolframAlpha refines the question to

Is Google [listed] in Internet information providers? Yes

so the jury is still out on "Is Google a search engine?" ;-)
