RE: When Searching With Google
Right. And that is why I am asking. Should the GUI give clues to the filtering? If yes, it gets harder to use. If no, its reliability vis a vis a common mental model is lowered. One should be sure what those Google numbers are saying. One should know about the phrase trade. One should understand blogging keiretsu. One should be able to set a search based on the credentials of the sources. One should be able to pick the types of credentials, not let the bot do that. Amplified acceptance of unverified assumptions is the very essence of robot wisdom. I am wondering about the viability of subscription search engines that contract for the quality of their results. len From: Michael Kay [mailto:michael.h.kay@n...] Most modern search engines give greater weight to a term the more infrequent it is in the corpus. Most also weight terms according to where and how often they appear in the source document, and some also recognize when adjacent words in the query constitute a noun phrase. What google does is anyone's guess.
