Tasty Search Goulash, The Web 2.no Version

Perusing through my Google alerts this morning I found a blog post of mine that wasn’t really mine. But it was.

Someone took one of my articles and re-translated it through their automated spam-text creator. I’m sure you’ve all seen something like this a dozen or more times but it made me laugh out loud. The original article is here, and below is what I like to call the Web 2.no version. I’ll refrain from linking to the spam blog, even with a link condom. No sense sending them traffic!

I’ve had some clip to see Google’s new cosmopolitan hunt that they are implementing in their hunt results. What I see do me believe of this in footing of hunt goulash.

Mmmm! a (not-so) dainty combination of everything I didn’t desire in my hunt with some material I did thrown in.

First a small Hungarian goulash background. Growing up, Hungarian goulash was a dish my female parent made that was essentially all of the week’s dinner left-overs combined into one (not-so) dainty dish. We awful Hungarian goulash nights, but Supreme Being bless my mother, she wasn’t willing to blow any food!

This is what cosmopolitan hunt reminds me of. Everything that everybody wishes thrown in, but nil that most people would happen tasty. Google realized that very few people were using their individual hunt countries such as as images, video, news, etc, and cosmopolitan hunt is their one-size-fits-all fix to that. The consequence is a clump of, what I would see to be, irrelevant hunt results. I understand what Google is trying to accomplish, I’m just not convinced this is the best approach.

When I desire to purchase something I typically don’t desire videos, or images, or books about it, I desire a land site that sells it. If I desire information, then some of those other options might be nice, but again, mental images of what I desire are not going to assist much. Whatever hunt I execute I pretty much cognize what type of information I’m looking for, whether that be to buy, larn more than than about, watch, see, etc. Universal Joint hunt is premix of just about every type of hunt in one place, regardless of the seekers desire.

Perhaps better integrating of those verticals would have got been more appropriate. Google expirimental hunt acquires this right. Just to the left of the hunt consequences are golf course to their other verticals. Maybe instead of just linking to those verticals as seen in that nexus above they could supply the #1 consequence for each under the perpendicular heading. This would supply the same basic conception of cosmopolitan hunt without forcing them into the chief hunt area, while also giving seekers more seeable options.

Maybe I’m the odd adult male out, but when I seek I cognize what sort of information I’m looking for. Google doesn’t and cosmopolitan hunt seeks to repair that by being all things to all people. The consequence is merely less of what anybody really wants. And in this case, less isn’t more.

While we are on the topic of odd sightings, this has nothing to do with us!

    This is hilarious. But all joking aside, online plagerism seems more and more prevalent. Using Google Alerts can help, but more needs to be done to protect intellectual property.
