blackhole- Misconception related to google and the web
There are myths related that you need to understand and well known of them:
- google’s index is a snapshot of all that there is online. That’s totally wrong perception. No search engine- not even google know everything. Information simply to much and its all flowing too fast to keep up. There’s the content google but chooses not to index at all: movies, audio, flash animations, and innumerable specialty data formats.
- everything on the web is credible. It’s not. There are surely things on the internet that are biased, distorted, or just plain wrong- whether intentional or not. Visit the urban legends reference pages (http//:www.snopes.com/) for a taste of the kinds of urban legends and other misinformation making the rounds of the internet.
- content filtering will protect you from offensive material. While google’s optional content filtering is good, it’s certainly not perfect. You may well come across an offending item among your search results.
- google’s index is a static snapshot of the web. It is simply cannot be so. The index, as with the web, is always in flux. A perpetual stream of spiders deliver new-found pages, note changes, and inform of pages now gone. And the google methodology itself changes as its designers and maintainers learn. Don’t get into a rut of searching a particular way; to do so is to deprive yourself of the benefit of google’s evolution.
I hope after you read those information, you sure want to protect yourself in the net, and act more smart.
