WikiPedia breaking the SERPs

I can’t help but agree with Michael Gray on WikiPedia if I see stuff like this: http://www.google.nl/search?q=merchandising&pws=0&hl=nl. That’s 5 results out of 10 for Wikipedia… Come on Google, fix it!

    Why are they presenting French and Spanish results for a search on .nl? Now that’s really broken.

    Never realised you guys get special treatment with ‘pagina’s uit Nederland’. Us Irish are second class searchers obviously…

    It’s really a pain seeing a list like this. Google has to prevent such occurrences to be more frequent (at the least).

    In this case it’s not only the fact that Wikipedia is ruling the SERPs, but, just like Richard mentioned, Wikipedia is ruling the SERPs with pages in 5 different languages.

    Yup, and it doesn’t happen in French or German…
