I have been trying to get Google Image search to recognize my wife’s full name. The name appears in several places that Google indexes, like LinkedIn, but they never can find her picture. Instead they give me lots of pictures of people with her first name, perhaps mentioned on a web page that also contains her last name. Adding her middle name does nothing. The first time Google found a link to her name on my blog, it was to a post I wrote complaining about Google! Well they have their priorities (see “common variants”) but I feel that it is no longer a search engine.
Another violation of the search engine “contract” is that sometimes adding search terms produces more search results. What is up with that? It makes me wonder: maybe Google can’t do searches any more and their concept of “relevance” has been corrupted.
