Cool now I know why!

Lately when I did a search for BMW, usually bmw.ca (Canada) the browser would not locate it. My browser features a google search. Hard to figure when it worked so well before. Now I know why. Who does Google think they will alienate or piss off, BMW or customers like me?
Here is my answer ... f***k Google. I will use another search engine from now on. I am sure people who want to locate a BMW website will find it whether it is featured on Google or not.

Note lately that Googles fortunes are falling, stocks I mean.

Hmmm, I just tried this on google:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...=Google+Search

Bet you can't guess what popped to the top of the list?

You need to work on your search engine skills

Richard,
Do a search for www.bmw.ca on Google. I get nothing. I used to get BMW Canada. Try another search engine such as sympatico. You will get BMW Canada. That is the point.
Thanks
Mike

Quite true. But if you have the url already why are you doing a search for it?

BTW what did my search pullup for you ( bmw canada)? Could that be BMW.ca right at the top of the list?

And just to add fuel to fire, I think Google was correct in their action, trying to cheat just gets you kicked out of the game.
