| Add "Kamat" for better Search|
I have always used Google even to search MSDN. All I do is add a keyword MSDN
to my keyword search.
Basically what I am doing is obtaining Microsoft's documentation for an API
or method by adding "msdn".
Obviously many people are using this trick. Of late, I am surprised by the number of people
who specify "kamat" as a keyword in their searches.
Example: kamat Gandhi or
kamat kamasutra or kamat
On a related note, I use Google even to search our own site. Yet, I am very
surprised by the number of people who use our search engine.
For years in succession, the search engine has been our most popular page. I
have no idea why.
Update: I might not know, but the usability guru Nielsen does (my thanks to the patron who sent the scan)
Upon further reflection, these are my thoughts on why people use our search
engine so much:
- Location of the search box. It is on every page
- It is very fast search, and the search results are of high quality
- It is a fallacy that one Google is enough for the web. I think there is
room for Google Search and there is room for Kamat Search.
