In one of my lighter moments i decided to try a google uk search for how to make millions of pounds. I was expecting a bunch of get rich quick schemes. What i actually got was 80% of the first page about the rcent Big Brother show. This is interesting because the show was just a couple of weeks ago. Is 80% of reults for a wide ranging phrase such as this best served by basically the same story that only came about in the last two weeks? I am also surprised that age of the article is clearly not a factor in this search. Well alomost the opposit of that, new means stronger on this search. I would imagine this search actually says a huge amount of for the future of searches.

except im not talking about a news search, this was a plain vanilla search that reads LIKE a news search. And dont forget the searched phrase is how to make a million pounds.

i agree.. all i was trying to say is that reality-tv shows catch on like wildfire.. not only in news but in regular searches.. i.e. search 'apprentice' and you won't find soldering howto's you'll find donald trump
