Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, November 28, 2021

In the spirit of “miserable failure”, a Google search on the word “bastards” will spit out the website of a certain Unix provider, best known for trying to stamp out Linux through lawsuits, as the top search result.

Obviously, it’s another example of Google’s ranking algorithm being gamed, in this case by a determined group of Linux geeks. So does anyone want to explain to me again how “relevance” is at all meaningful for search results?
