Google Zeitgeist

2001-07-06 15:11:54+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Via /. the Google Zeitgeist. I remember ages ago a few of the other search engines did a "what are 10 other people searching for right now" page, but that was probbaly back when they were getting less than 10 searches/second. I've also noticed recently that while Google is really good for some sorts of searches, going back to Alta Vista, Hotbot and Excite can give some drastically different, and sometimes dramatically better returns. Yet another reminder that search engines are only as good as their last query.

Actually, there are still lots of other search engines that let you see what other people are searching for. My list is at http://www.larkfarm.com/search_voyeurs.htm .
