catchy saying but missleading.............

The saying that I hear often and even by people without computers is 'Google it'

and from experience thats the one thing I won't do - if I want to find anything I use 'Yahoo search'

even if you register with Google with your web page it will get no results in a GOOGLE search - where an identical search in Yahoo or MSN puts your search in the top three finds

So anyone I find uttering the catch phrase I point in the right direction ;)

It's similar to saying that you're going to do the hoovering, even though you're going to use a Dyson/Electrolux/Henry etc etc

Interesting Sethhaniel. So you're saying that Yahoo is a better search engine than Google?
I certainly can't argue the point as I really don't know. I use Google all the time and its always given me what I wanted.

My life is much too short to worry about the semantics of language.

this could be true but only in some areas...diferant search engines tend to have differant results when claim to have 8 bilion pages but also there is belief that they have mirrored there pages meaning they only have 4billion....

GANDALF once again you take time out of your short life to tell us "my life is too short blah, blah,...". If a thread is of no interest to you, or indeed you feel the subject matter is not worthy of your time or effort, why reply?

To all new comers to computers -with Google it instilled in their world view and search for items to be limited in their search or find nothing at all - where if they had searched Yahoo there answers would have been there/

I often need results and I know I can rely on Yahoo 100% afraid Google is not in the running -

A simple test for you all - pick your subject Google It and Yahoo it and compare the results As simple as that

Sorry to wake you GANDALF <|:-)> ;)
