    I'm researching an article that's due tonight and did a Google search. Take a look at the first thing that came up--"According to..."??? WTH? Have I been living under a rock? What is this?

    And what totally infuriates me is that a nutritional question returned....frigging BUZZLE???? Is Google kidding?

    Has anyone seen this before?

      LOL I knew that it returned information on maths problems, conversions and locations but I didn't know google was into calories. It's starting to turn into wolfram alpha!

      And I had a look at buzzle. Never seen it before. Is it some kind of low quality article site? Duplicate?

        Buzzle's pretty bad. It's similar in structure (I guess) to AC, Triond, et.al. But when you have tons of government agencies, hospitals and other medical institutions that are actually reputable, and Google picks Buzzle to return the information? Sheesh!

        Hey, WryLilt, quick! Let's go write some calorie hubs! smile
