btw the system google uses to display websites is quite good... generally speaking... better than most other engines I have used... google tends to generate more hits for certain topics that I use quite a bit in the technical field as compared to others.. and I also enjoy the simple interface
because of this... google is used quite a bit more than other search engines... and is also considered a better engine... and therefore some sites use the technology in their own search 'engines'
It'll be a long time until someone figures out a better searching technique than google.
I believe right now that google determines website importance by how many people link that page... but it's a little more complicated than that, because the importance of the page that links them is also important. It's like a never ending cycle of linking.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
