   RE: RE: [xml-dev] Great piece on RSS

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hmm.. no.  Google ranks based on what others 
say as well.  Actually, this is key.  It is 
not the classification but the ranking that 
is at issue.  Parties are not responsible for 
what they discover, but what they assert.  That 
is why a Google to a web page of the vendor 
does work.  It isn't Google, but the web page 
that makes the assertion.  Google is just 
locating and ranking.  

But ranking alone is just part.  That doesn't make 
MS the location of hell.  It means that a lot 
of people want others to think it is.  Maybe 
that is why they are located in Red-mond. Still, 
Google had to do something other than policy; 
they had to fix that reference manually because 
it was gamed.  Am I to believe based on all of 
the nasty blogs over RSS that Winer is the 
anti-christ of RSS?  No, but Google alone might 
lead me to believe that, and Bill Clinton is 
the Overlord Of Cigars, yes?

See the point.  Vette the information because 
a pure voting system based on misinformation 
votes badly and if that is fed back to a system 
as gospel, one gets bushwhacked.   There are 
whole camps of marketing literature that teach 
these techniques (how to sell anything).

Can Google spider a UDDI registry?  If so, 
that is useful.

Everything Google indexes is already a self-assertion; Google indexes
what is published. Everything a UDDI registry indexes is a
self-assertion; UDDI indexes what is given to it.

Let's try a gedanken: Suppose Google spiders a UDDI registry - are two
parties less responsible because they went through Google rather than
the UDDI registry?
