Post Do search engines omit relevant search results
Hi, there's been a lot of talk about 'targeted' search results and also about governments blocking this and that content from internet users in countries all over the world.. does anybody know whether we actually get genuinely relevant could be search results omitted from internet searches and is there a way of searching to avoid this potential problem, for example would using Tor mean that we might then find something we would otherwise not have access to?

To be honest I don't know what the complete answer would be but I always work on the assumption that yes, we don't get 'all' the relevant results.

You can always use a browser like TOR but it's very slow.. that's the price you pay. https://www.torproject.org
