Put "window factory east tamaki" and you get news on Man seriously injured at glass factory

or how about link to baby factory (human baby)


Then how about try "rgb to composite video converter" in to Google

And you get "composite video to RGB converter"

CAN anybody else do better, I have found a few others but can not remember them.

In HTML they have <meta> tages I thought it would real handy if web sites divided up web page to help search engines such as google into different category such "news" "theory" "sales" "history" etc then you know that when you go to look for something, you dont get bogged out by all the other non relevant rubbish.

Things get really messy when High ranking things are related to your search. I had a phone (Chinese) model A380... of course the new Airbus had been announced and everything I tried to search was blotted with aircraft info. It didn't help much. Some things like the RBG to composite just require you to rethink your phrase, other things like A380's and bands called EA... well you really have to go outside the box!

Google can throw up odd results, and you may get get something newsworthy - possibly because a large numer of similar queries were recently conducted, or recency of events from a authority (news) site, as the first hit rather than for your intentional query. Or if a large number of searchers use "reverse search queries" (or shortened queries) to your similar seach then the corresponding serps (search engine results pages) are displayed for those short cut queries.

Use Googles Advanced Operators (http://www.googleguide.com/advanced_operators.html) if normal seaches do not work or seem illogical for your intentional query. Popular ones are intitle, inurl, inanchor, intext, quotes ("") for exact match, and the minus operator. For the window one: Then inurl:window factory east tamaki (http://www.google.co.nz/search?q=inurl%3Awindow+factory+east+tamaki&rlz=1C1GGGE_enNZ451NZ489&oq=inurl%3Awindow+factory+east+tamaki&sugexp=chrome,mod=6&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8) (or intitle, allintitle), etc.

For your meta tag html question - Good idea. In early days of Google - meta tags were abused by spammers - false descriptive tags which did not match their websites content. Adult sites, gambling sites, ad heavy sites, etc, were displayed. Meta description tags are believed not to help in ranking for websites, but can help seachers decide which site is relevant to click on. But there is now Google rich snippets (http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=99170) code, i.e. microdata, structured markup, and also authorship, (http://www.google.com/insidesearch/features/authorship/index.html) (image of publisher displayed)that can be included in sites to better display relevancy (as links), visibilty, and credibilty - viewed in search results. But again Google will only display them if they believe the site is worthy enough. And webmasters/designers have to add such codes/profile links themselves...

But Google will sometimes reward sites by displaying site links (http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=47334) (without any real manual input from webmaster) in the serps - but only if they believe if that site has justified authority, good url bot crawlability, strong social signals, etc, e.g. Trademe, NZ Herald, and heavily visted feature rich content sites tend to have site links.

This is why you need to be precise.
Like: window factory east tamaki -news

baby factory brings up the bay products shop - shouldn't it?

I was googling blood clots the other day and kept getting Hillary Clinton, added so I -clinton and -news.
