As a search engine operator, I sometimes get frustrated when I have to deal with people that don't quite grasp the concept of search. I've started keeping a list of my top pet peeves and decided that I'd share it.
People who think that if 1 web site is good, then 50 domain names for the same web site is 50 times better.
People who complain about misspellings in their listing, when the text of their listing comes straight from their web page.
People who complain that their framed pages and Flash pages (that contain no text) can't be found in the search results.
People who complain that their listing doesn't come up with a search of "divorce attorney" and then threaten to sue when you tell them that the words "divorce" and "attorney" need to be on their web page.
Free web hosts and free domain redirection.
People who submit the URL to search results from another search engine. (I still can't figure out why they do this, it can't possibly be for improved link popularity, can it?)
People who submit the URL of the submission page instead of the URL of the web site they want to add to the search index.
People who think if they take a page and change the name of the country/province/state in the URL then it qualifies as a new web page.
People who submit the checkout page to their web site with a full shopping cart, thinking that when someone clicks the link, they will complete the purchase. (You'd be surprised at how often people try this!)
People who use the phrases "the best website in the World...." and "the most popular website ever...." for their web site that they have hosted at geocities.
People who submit the default page of their web host when they first get a new hosting account. ("If you see this page, you must replace it with a new home.htm")
People who leave the title on every web page of their web site "New Page 1".
I know there are a lot of other se operators that frequent this forum, do you have anything to add?
