  1. Are the indexes and the page ranks mirrored between the datacenters around the world or is the search result different depending on your location?

  2. So is this page rank thing the reason when i type in a specific question into google I get results to “popular” websites instead of absolute relevance to the specific question i asked? Google is really going downhill. Do not rank my pages. That’s my job

  3. google search are tottaly irrelevant bullshit!rather go to deepnet to find somphting exept ebay…the pages are hidden deleted ore in the 33 page…the picture search is sad,bec its the biggest search engine and dryng to give u the less amount of info possible….u cant ewen find info about why it sucks so bad bec u cant find it!!!

  4. Many good new companies have no chance to meet your requirements to emerge a market. Tough to be the first page because SEO companies and freelances have know your strategy and feed all the information with different URL and contexts in terms of web board, blogs, classified, social networking, and so on.This is still refer and point to the same firm that hired SEO companies. So, you collect all data they feed and, show the same listing result with different URL. Unavoidable, people have to read and click the same topic on your listing result. It is like a circle. What if a bad company mislead people to use and buy his product by using SEO firms and you show the same listing result? What if…? Please revise your method.

  5. I think that you somehow managed to simplify the crawling process of Google’s search index. I had no idea it had come so far since the last time I sat in one of these lectures several years ago.
