AUSTRALIAN COUNCIL FOR THE DEFENCE OF GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS - D.O.G.S.
PRESS RELEASE 117#.
IS GOOGLE PART OF THE AUSTRALIAN CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE ON THE AUSTRALIAN COUNCIL FOR THE DEFENCE OF GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS?
DOGS invite visitors to this website to assist us in an assessment of what is happening on Google.
After DOGS last emailed Goggle ( for the sixth time) on 29 October 2004, we gave up on them.
We were trying to get them to put our Home Page on their Australian search engine. We failed dismally and now, nine months later wish to note the result of current searches for the "Council for the Defence of Government Schools," "Defence of Government Schools" and "The Review of Education and Training Legislation"
It makes for an interesting research project.
When we insert "Council for the Defence of Government Schools" into the Australian search engine we get 11 listings but not one of them is our Home Page. You have to go to other listings to find a reference to the Council for the Defence of Government Schools.
When you use the world wide web search there are 75 references to the Council for the Defence of Government Schools and the Home Page is No. 1 in the search result.
This is amazing. You would think that the Australian search would be better for Australian searchers than the world wide one for an Australian based organisation.
WHAT IS GOING ON IN GOOGLE AUSTRALIA?
The plot thickens.
Insert "Defence of Government Schools" into the Australian web search engine and you get 236 results. If you can find our Home Page in these results, you are either more persistent than we are, or you have better eyesight.
Should the web searcher have to wade through references of other bodies to DOGS to find out about DOGS in the Australian search engine?
On the other hand, if you insert Defence of Government Schools into the world wide search, you get 463 results and the Home Page is once again. No. 1 on the list.
To make our point again, put into your search " Review of Education and Training Legislation". An Australian search reveals 83 results. DOGS don't get a mention on this search.
Yet put it into the world wide web search and you get 96 results.
Surprise! Surprise, DOGS News Releases are on the First page of the World Wide search and this increases the list of 83 towards 96.
SO - WHAT IS GOING ON IN GOOGLE AUSTRALIA
