Do you believe Google is the BEST search engine or just the most popular?

    I know Google is the most popular but they are extremely simple. Websites such as Ask.com have come out with some nice looking search engines that have more to them. It's hard to believe that no other search engine has developed technology to match Google. Do people flock to Google because they are the best or is it simply because of brand loyalty?

    Its because of what runs in the background, they have gone for the idea of keeping it simple to the eye up front but behind the scenes its probably the most complicated.

    The sheer amount of money they have to play with helps of course and regarding what is best is more abouut whats best for the user, not overall, depends what a user is requiring from a search engine.

    It is being forced down your throat though, it may not seem that way but for the majority of people you haven't chosen to be a user of google, more a case of being conditioned, and you will tell yourself that its the best because you read many other people saying the same.

    Best for what? overall or a specific thing? quicker? more organised, serves up better porn? many people are less specific about why they think its the best.

    Website such as Yahoo, MSN, and Ask.com also have a lot of money. I also believe they were out before Google. It's hard to believe they don't have coders that can come up wtih something to match Google.

    when people search they just want relevant results to their query, most people don't want or need all of the extra crap that SE's like Ask.com have, they want quick results that get them to the web page and/or information they're looking for...and that is exactly what Google does.

    It is the best that is why it is the most popular. Consumers aren't fool, they go for the best.

    I don't know how they became so popular, but it was quick.

    The reason everyone uses it now is basically becuase well.....everyone else does.

    I used to use ask.com to find old websites (like pre-1999) that disappered that I wanted to find. Becuase Ask always had old shit in the serps.
    But I think they fixed that so I do't use it anymore.

    I like Google though, I think its the best their is no need for bells n' Whistles when comes to search.
    Example.. Look at Ask.com now? There alot of javascript special effects in the image search, same for MSN.
    Its not neccarsary. This would only attract naive users who think its cool but its not important.

    I think it is the most popular perhaps. I use Yahoo for searches, mostly because thats what I use for my e-mail as well.
