On search engine neutrality
Searching for MSN email on Google yields Hotmail as result number 1.
Searching for google email on MSN Search does not have the Gmail homepage in any of the first 100 search results (I couldn't be bothered clicking further)!
But if you search for "google mail" instead of "google email" you actually get it in the first three search results.
"Its all about the queries baby" (to misquote, a P-Diddy tune from "long ago").
Yeah, but considering the number of sites that must have said something along the lines of "google's new email service"...
Hotmail has been there since early 1990's but Google Gmail just arrived. It takes quite some time for GMail to catch up in term of linkage popularity.
