The web is still mostly about the web

I signed out of my google account (so my search results wouldn’t be biased) and did some searching.

“table” – The first page showed 7 unpaid results. 4 about html tables, 1 about database tables, 2 about restaurants.

“anchor” – First result, tutorial on the html <a> tag.

“body” –  First result, html tutorial.

Those are just a few quick examples.  It always strikes me that when I’m searching the web for something technology related I can find what I’m looking for immediately.  It’s not that search is so good, or just that my search history is guiding it.  The fact is the web is still so young that most web content is about the web.  I guess I just contributed to that.
