For me, results by Google are more useful. The page ranking system works just fine for me and is on par with searches done by keywords. When you get into the realm of searches by subject title, which have been put there by human hands, the results can become skewed or more refined. If internet users are to keep Google searches accurate, though, and link to the important pages which are relevant to the subject(s) at hand, then the page ranking system is in essence adding subject titles to the query. I understand, after doing research for this class, that there is information out there not accessible on Google because the people who own the information want money for it. However, when you need that particular information, you will most likely be a part of an institution that has access to it or be keen enough to know where to access it.
For American searching, I am proud of Google. I am not fond of their censorship in other parts of the world, but, in smart-business practice, I understand why they must do it. The recent activity between Google and the Chinese government is baffling. If the people of the world deem certain information valuable, and show as much by making it searchable, then I would think it is in everyone’s right to know be able to find it. Governments should not censor to keep information out of the hands of its people.
