Google Alerts: Lost in Cyber Space?

July 16, 2020

Check out these headlines from my Google Alert for the phrase “enterprise search”.


The Covid angle is back. Who publishes this type of news? An outfit called Daily Research Chronicles. An outstanding SEO outfit? Maybe?

And how about these high relevance links to my enterprise search alert?


Silicon steel, analog cameras, and dental film.

Sure, the alerts are a free service. Sure, an item every week or three points to something relevant.

But the spoofiness of the service from outfits like Daily Research Chronicles begs me to ask?

What about those quality and relevance algorithms, dearest Google?
