I looked at these results and realized that these links are not the right links. I wanted to see why certain children want to hurt animals rather than to play with the animals. Each reputable search engine gave me different answers. There was no consistence at all. The results across the board were not accurate nor precise. This makes me wonder if the user is really saving time. If I typed in the word "children" in various search engines, I get results related to children. This means that the results are more accurate and precise. This shows that queries directly hit search engine indexes and the indexes and page ranking are dependent are independent search algorithms. This is a typical problem of text based search engines (including Google). I believe there is a way to address this issue. Email me and I will let you know.
