@TOI, yes, almost smiliar in mind :). I almost thought that you are a google worker cause the way you defend the serps.
LOL Nope. I just try to look at the bigger picture and realize how tough it is for them to do what they do. Helps keep me sane (or relatively sane) lol
I mean really, a trillion+ pages and a trillion+ searches a year? They're gonna miss a few, which relative to the numbers they work with means if they're right on 99% of the time (for 990,000,000,000 queries) they miss on 10,000,000,000 queries.
Yes, that means 10 billion queries are off if they have 99% accuracy and here we are complaining about a few results. Kinda makes me chuckle a bit sometimes when I think about the near insanity of people thinking every result set should be "right on every single time" and "Google's broken" if that's not how the results are right now today, because even with 99.9% accuracy, they're "missing it" for 1 billion queries.
