Hmm GoOoOoOgle??? Y?
Can anyone tell me what the big fascination with Google is here at AO. I mean why are there so many people promoting it? Is it really that good? What's so special about Google and not Yahoo or Hotmail or any other search engine. Im sorry to be so blunt about it. But it is so frekin' annoying seeing people talk about frekin' Google every minute. Please don't take this the wrong way. I just want to understand more so mabey I can become a big Google fan aswell.

Because google is the best search engine!The first kind is called the searchable subject index. Which is a kind of search engine that only searches titles and descriptions of sites and it doesn't search individual pages. Yahoo is a searchable subject index. Then there are full-text search engines which are computerized spiders which contain around millions and billions of pages. These pages can be searched by title or content, allowing for much more searches then searchable subject index. Google is a full-text search engine, that is why google is the best search engine in the world.
Hope that helped you .
