I'm sorry but this is a genuine question - I don't know the answer.
I was genuinely searching for something on Google tonight (cooking related) and Google UK returned more than 600 million results. I am a little bit in shock because the top answer appears to be from the forum section of the site of a top chef and it's not rocket science to know that only an oven explosion will result. Any semi-competent cook, or anyone with basic scientific knowledge, would recognise it as a no-no. Curious that the site has only text and no pictures...
What would you do if you found such a high profile Google result - in any type of search - which is so obviously entirely worthless and totally wrong?
I'd write something which is hopefully better and by far more useful
Hollie is on to something. Rewrite it right and submit it to them for posting and giving you full credit.
That's my intention going forward, Hollie. I feel comforted by the fact that I certainly couldn't do much worse than the present Number One. Just feeling really sorry for the decent articles below that... that... "Whatever..."
In the end Gordon, frauds may make it to number one, but if their content is rubbish, they'll get outed. Write the hub, let it mature, good content gets noticed. Crap content eventually dies.
Excellent point, I'm going for it - thanks, Hollie and paradigmsearch!
Go for it, You're a perfectionist, I can tell by your hubs It will be the best.
I'd email the site that has the bad info and warn them?
And include a link to your profile and/or a hub or two.
I was reading some techy forums this morning, and it seems there is a huge resurgence of totally irrelevant material rising to the top of the Google at the moment.
So, Google is broke.

This site has been suggested as a way to get traffic. I spent a few hours, which turned into 3 days, to figure out how to navigate it. It appears to be a site about links, not really content, but they get angry if you post links? What am I missing? I had to go on under 3 names, but I tried to leave...

I've heard that since Google's huge success and it's availability ,and even more now that most phones have a google search bar in the home screen, people have been getting dumber since they don't have to remember things anymore. I mean every answer is at their fingertips. What do you think?

If Google Ads are showing on Bubblews, then my opinion of them must be completely wrong. My apologies for any negative comments made earlier.

I know I mentioned this before on a forum post, but its beginning to drive me to insanity now! I was on a 100 profile score, updated my groups and dropped right down to 82 now 84! It may not make a lot of difference, but its totally confused me. Is there something I can do about it? It makes me...

When ı search about a topic the first page results are not very high quality material, ordinary stuff. Then what makes them on top page?

Hi,Around a week ago, (could be longer, I don't always check), I noticed that my daily page view figures had suddenly plummeted from several hundred to just tens. Of course this could be explained away by an overnight drop in my hub popularity - except for the fact that I'm also getting...
