Google Results Getting Really Good
Every week they seem to get better and better!

Even though I really dislike the fact that Google seems to have taken a different approach with seo's and webmasters lately, I must say the results are finally starting to come around and be pretty relevant.

Once again, I find myself only using Google when looking something up. For a while there I was using others quite often, but not much anymore!

WTG Google!

I'm finding whatever I'm looking for. Of course, we get more adept at searching when we've been online for a while and have some experience so if we need to we know how to refine searches a bit more.

It would be nice if there was a lot of visible public education and information out there about how to use search engines, for the benefit of those who are new to the net or just haven't found simple tips to help them.

I see them but not *all* and I just pass those over. There's still work that needs to be done, as with all search engines always and always will be, but more than likely the worst areas are those of certain "types" and that's just the nature of those markets and always will be.

we tried some side-by-side with y! and google. it's not even close, quality-wise. google seems to be kickin' tail. that said, the users seem to convert, sales-wise, at the same rate.

I've been very happy for not seing porn and/or gambling results among serious business stuff.

However, there are TOO many directories within the Top 100.

On the other hand, it's good to see Google's daily improvements.

I couldn't agree more about Google being very good right now. I see a lot of quality branded sites at the top.

With Yahoo, a branded site gets you squat. It's all about whos domain matches the keywords.
