    I believe as long as your signed in it's a global setting,
    It might or might not make any difference,
    The theory is it might give better results and not just throw anything at you for the sakes of speed :/

    Yep you have to alter your search parameter,
    I guarantee you'll get a big hit on Yahoo,
    They do not monitor the sites they host on search results they just take the money,
    Google and Bing do allot better job at monitoring site on their search results good bad or indifferent

    Well, Google is my main search engine anyway (90%), Duck gets attention when searching for Google blocked content and Bing for MS related stuff. Must admit I get on Tor every now and than.

    Did anybody try same search word on two computers with different IPs ? Results are different or at least in different order.
    Depends on previous searches, browsing history etc. Delete all your internet cookies and do the same search again on the same PC and see what happens. I know if I look at a specific piece of hardware on say NewEgg, I'll then see adds for that same piece of hardware on other sites. If I then delete my cookies the adds go back to the random generic adds.

    Hi there

    I'll agree to an extent that if you have an AMBIGUOUS query then you will get some strange answers - such as a search on QUANTUM COMPUTERS - you might get some stores or businesses called that even if you wanted to find out about quantum computers in general - but a lot of times you are diverted to sites selling things first rather than the information you are REALLY looking for.

    Perhaps those sites that are accessed INCORRECTLY should have money taken AWAY from their accounts instead of ADDING to it for each hit / visit.

    Cheers

    Key word advertising
    If you pay Google for hits you get hits "the hits package" this package google makes up words on what you type for the highest bidder

    I was asking that because a friend of mine would not believe me when he tells me over a phone to look at "4th link from the top" at a search results for particular word and I have to tell him that I get a different result than him. He thinks that every result must be same. I get that a lot when talking to people that do not understand English good enough and want me to tell them what's the link about.

    Yeah, I've run into that when talking to my father on the phone. He'll call me an ask me which one is the real one when he's looking for something. He got tricked once and it messed his PC up real bad. He'll say something like I think its the forth one down and I have to get him to read it out to me. He didn't get that my search results were different from his. Google is Google why is yours different? I couldn't see his face but I'm pretty sure he had that deer in the headlights look as I tried to explain why.
