Let's go a'Googlin'

Have you ever wondered what the "I'm feeling lucky" button does on Google? Do an experiment, it'll only take a minute, I promise. Go to Google. Type in the word 'failure'. I won't ruin the surprise. Do it now!

I'm no search engine expert. I do know that "I'm feeling lucky" takes you directly to the first website from the results. If you're even more interested, look at the list that comes up from that search. I, personally, can't disagree with the second result.

Looking at this website would have you believe that really the only factors that Google ranks by are mainly keywords in the title or domain name and then links to other websites. Doing a search within the page reveals that 'failure' isn't on that website a single time.
