    Does anyone else think that search engines give you way too many duplicate and irrelevant matches?

    What can be done?

      Yes, I agree that search engines give you way too many duplicate and irrelevant matches. Nothing can be done. Programming a Search Engine to show only relevant matches is not going to be too much profitable for Companies like Google and Yahoo.

        I'm having a disagreement with a friend and we have a small bet on it - so I'm doing some informal research - we've agreed you can be  the judge.  Would you ask some of your friends the same question and let me know how many agree with you (and me) and how many disagree?  I'd really appreciate your help.

    Quoted search will help a little because many website builders plan to befool search engines.They keep the web title and tags ambiguous. Many times they choose a similar name of a popular site and contents do not match the title or tags.
    It is difficult for a search engine to assort as the sites are planned to befool the search engines.They know the technicalities of a search engine.

      Well, sometimes it will help, sometimes it won't. I guess you do really have to just keep searching around as well.

    well its ture but many times because of spam techniques of retails many times we found unrelevant result. But google is the best in giving accurate results. Foreg when I search for bluetooth gps many i get appropriate results but when searching for some infomation or article on mobile accessories or such then its totally rediculous results i got every time
