Yes, I did know about Goobuntu.
The tiers I am referring to are socioeconomic and priority based. I recently built a site where I brought the extended web.
(Flicker, Tumblr, Fb and a Google place page)
Here is an example:
The custom woodworking site I just finished and am tuning.
During the slow parts of the day and or week if you search for 'R and S Custom Woodworking location' it produces a nice big map w/phone address etc. The store
or root pops above the map and the other four pages
below it. Fb just below that with flicker below that. Looks like I did my job and returned the expected result.
Without the qualifier 'location' the result is still at the top of the page with social stuff under it.
During peak time (e.g. nights weekends) it produces the smaller gray map disjointed and down the page from the search result Fb will be a page back or so and flicker buried farther back than that.
last weekend they even went so far as to return the original search result now three months old ! The social stuff was also as inconsistent. Now this morning it looks good. By the weekend i'm a thinkin it is going to be fucked up again.
As for the socioeconomic custom woodworking does not come cheap. So even though we are 40 or so miles out of town from an affluent suburb it shows his result as being grouped where people could afford 'custom woodworking'.
Results have become a matter of economic indicators
and load. Not keywords not semantics but cheap good old advertising methods.
A restaurant in town opened recently and Google wanted 365.00/month so that their result would be the first keyword search. This price is not for a sponsored result. They are even more expensive. So much for keywords.
We are in trouble in America. People in Russia thought
socialism was good until it turned into totalitarianism. Capitalism, a good idea too could become totalitarian if we are not careful. Nope not good at all...
Remember our republic and capitalism are two distinct things.
