Isn’t this fun?

Australians trying to stay up to date with the news by searching online may be better off ditching Google and using its competitors, research by Monash University has shown.

On Australia Day “Grace Tame” was the most popular search term used on Google – reflecting the fact that she had just been made Australian of the Year. The top 50 results delivered by Google included only 70% of professional news websites, compared with 94% for the same search term on Bing and 82% on Ecosia.

Bit hierarchical for The Guardian isn’t it? The output of the Murdock press is better than that of citizen journalists?

    Well yeah.. the average Ozzie will go “who dafuq she then?” and may look her up.

    Any site they regularly visit will be bookmarked already, and will never show up on a google, or for that matter other search engine, query.
