My latest rant about Google is the fact that they use their hugely flawed and sided indexing policies to push agendas. If you haven’t noticed, Google just loves Wikipedia. Why? Well Wikipedia empowers real people…it allows them to create their own Internet. One in where only facts are presented.
Google sides soo much with Wikipedia that it seems you will not find anything else in the top-spot of Organic search (Organic, but how peculiar that Wikipedia shows up in the top spot…must be their link quality or something). Look at the results for the following five key phrases:
So let’s look at it this way, we trust Google, we find that Google favors Wikipedia, we will believe and accept what Wikipedia has is factual. I find this quite dangerous. Especially after reading the article “Companies and party aides cast censorious eye over Wikipedia” which describes situations where companies rewrite their entries to make them look good for PR reasons. And, like him or not Rush Limbaugh’s was even a target of an assault of free speech:
“And somebody from a computer traced to Democrat HQ edited a page on conservative American radio host Rush Limbaugh, calling him “idiotic”, “ridiculous” and labelling his 20 million listeners as “legally retarded”.”
So time will only tell when Google will start rewriting history by means of third-party authoring. Again, why hate Microsoft when you have Google?
