*Trust in Search Engines

-Users blame themselves, not the search engine if they are unable to find something on the internet.
Even if some evil scientist have actually reversed the order of the search results.

– 92% of search engine users are confident with their research capabilities.
Place a monkey in front of a computer and he will also able to come up with “some” search results on Google.-

– Search engines are attaining the status & trust of public institutions such as the government, hospitals etc.
Just keep in mind the censoring Google carries out. Yes, the search for the terms “Tiananmen square massacre” -brings up pretty much identical search results on Goolge Images in .at and .cn …. but jut for the fun of it… just enter only the term “Tiananmen” and compare the results😉
