Wikia Search: Crap
Check out the query for my name. #1 is me, as it should, out of the other 10 results, 5 are german. I’m searching from the Netherlands, with a browser with it’s main language set to english, and still, it thinks that off all the pages on the web about me, 5 of the most relevant ones are German, and one other is Dutch and one is French…
URL’s and Referrers
The URL for result pages look like this: http://re.search.wikia.com/search#joost%20de%20valk. That’s with the search query behind the #. You know what that means? That ALL traffic referred to you by this stupid search engine will look as though it comes from http://re.search.wikia.com/search.
In all: it’s crap.
