Google Returns Relevant Results *.It tends to be good at selecting links that closely match your search query. *.What you want is usually near the top. Google Identifies Ads and Sponsored Links *.It doesn’t sell placement of search results. *.Sponsored links and ads are clearly marked and kept separate from search results. *.Ads relate to content and aren’t distracting. Google is Fast *.Most results are found in less than a second. *.You can also access Google’s cached versionof a web page, often faster than the page itself.

Google could be said to be the best search engine for the following reasons: It relies on a simplicity that many other search engines lack. It's fast, reliable, easy to use, user friendly. Fewer, less noticeable ads. The search algorithm seems to bring the most relevant items to the top. More relevant ads. More people use Google than any other search engine in the world, giving Google the information to improve their engine further. Google Search can be customized, eg: (regular) (pink google) (purple google) Basically, Google is a crawler-based engine, meaning that it has software programs designed to "crawl" the information on the Net and add it to its sizeable database. Google has a great reputation for relevant and thorough search results, and is a good first place to start when searching. Google's home page is extremely clean and simple, loads quickly, and delivers arguably the best results of any search engine out there, mostly due to its PageRank technology and massive listings. Google also earns high marks for its maps and searches for images, videos and blog posts; you can even search inside books with Book Search. However, search experts say that no single search engine provides the most relevant results for all queries. Google is also ranked number one because more people use it than any other search engine.

RIP:Professor Dora Akunyili Passes Away in India, Aged 59

As family sources have disclosed to Sahara Reporters, former Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control and ex minister of Information, Professor Dora Akunyili, has died today. She passed away at the age of 59 at an Indian Hospital where she has been receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment. She was born Dora Nkem Akunyili in July 1954 in Makurdi, Benue State. Apart from holding highest offices in the NAFDAC and Ministry of Information and Communications, she was a pharmacist and governmental administrator. For her achievements, she gained international recognition and won hundreds of awards for her work in pharmacology, public health and human rights sectors. In April 2011, Akunyili ran for the post of the Senator for Anambra Central on the All Progressive Grand Alliance platform, but lost to Chris Ngige of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN). In late May 2014, former Governor of Anambra State Peter Obi visited her at an Indian hospital and reported that she was "responding well to the treatment". May her soul rest in perfect peace. AMEN.
