Quite a few it would seem judging by the number of times people reply to problems with "Have you tried Google?" Surley people must explored several avenues to try and solve their problems, (including google and other search engines) or is it just me?

Most people, it seems, have never heard of Google. Judging by the number of times the answer to questions comes up immediatley in Google, I can only conclude that people are unaware of the facility or, dare one say, just a teeny bit lazy?

Ditto northamuk's reply (saves some typing).

maybe it isn't that they don't know about google but that they search for the wrong terms due to inexperience?

I don't work for Google but it often works for me.
I also agree with northamuk's sentiments.

none of my colleagues work for google, but we use google not only for leisure (out of working hour searching) but also for professional and business use, and I would say 9.99 out of 10 we can find positive results within the first page - that does not happen on Yahoo or alta vista.

I'll never be able to look at another pigeon again without thinking of google.
