I wish they would allow voting on the web sites they display (though of course this means they have to invoke security to keep web sites from just voting themselves up)


When I do a search for a tv manual and get 5 hits (non Google partners, even) at the top that want me to pay for a manual that I could get for the manufacturer for free...GRRRrrrr

I wish they'd implement sort features for the results that are returned from a search.

Sometimes I want to see more recent data for example.

Although changes kinda spook me, don't really wanna see a good thing screwed up.

Personally I'd like to see more time relevant results (or an easier way to search by date, instead of: adv. search/more options/date) When I'm searching for a computer problem how relevant is a forum post that was posted 4 years ago? I'd like to just quickly see if anythings happened in the last week/two weeks/month etc.

We've been doing similar things at Duck Duck Go (http://duckduckgo.com/) to these new Google changes. In particular, we put zero-click info, e.g. topic summaries, on top of links. We also also put an explore box with related topics above links. For example check out http://duckduckgo.com/?q=futurama

Our snippets and related topics are not algorithmically driven, however. Instead they are based on human edited sources, e.g. Wikipedia and Crunchbase (and many others). Consequently, they are more relevant and make more sense than Google's info. We also have more semantic properties, such as ambiguous keyword detection, e.g. http://duckduckgo.com/?q=apple, which of course Google does not.

See http://duckduckgo.com/about.html for some more examples. Of course, we'd love your feedback on what we're doing.

does that mean if you know what to type like:
Principle of physics, by so and so author, that your search results will be flooded with books like:
"angular momentum", by Dr. X
and "Big Bang", by Dr Y

?
