search for a simple phrase and you could get 36,900,000 results (altavista never gave you that many answers for any question)

  • the first results will be adverts
  • then there will be videos (!)
  • then newspaper articles

and finally if you are lucky you might get the actual link you need

an example

Google has finally broken !

I just used Google to search for JavaScriptWebServices and got 51,000,000 which was completely UNEXPECTED.
It seems that Google had decided to split my single 'word' search into two separate words and if i want to stop Google 'splitting' my keywords i have to enclose them in ""'s as in "JavaScriptWebServices" and only then get the < 10 results I waqs expecting !

So when did Google start arbitarily changing users queries and how can I stop them doing it again ?
