Perhaps I'm doing something wrong but every search I have made gives 'site not found'.

Depends on what you are searching for. I doubt it will include little personal sites or blogs. I guess there has to be a minimum threshold before your site is "mapped".

Like that tiny organisation Google

That comes back with 'site not found'

As does avforums

Another two examples of tiny organisations that cannot be found - microsoft and apple.

Cheers,

Nigel

OK - worked it out

microsoft = not found
www.microsoft.com = not found
microsoft.com = found

Microsoft Corporation: Software, Smartphones, Online, Games, Cloud Computing, IT Business Technology, Downloads = not found

You must be blind mate. Google is right there staring you in the face. Can't really blame the site for your own lackluster searching abilities :p

But only if you zoom in from the landing page which Nigel may not have, in all fairness

I was making the same point as roustafarian, but attempting to be slightly more tactful. Maybe so tactful that the point was missed :)

What point? That my site may be personal, but may have more use than this one? :laugh:

Honestly, what is the relationship between the large main websites depicted in this "galaxy", versus the smaller "satellite" sites orbiting them? It all seems rather random and arbitrary to me.

Of course I can see google, just saying that if I typed 'google' into the search field it came back as site not found which was clearly nonsense.

Anyway I had discovered my problem and updated my post before you posted your little 'witticism' - perhaps down to your lackluster reading skills.

To reiterate,

If you enter 'google' or 'www.google.com' it comes back as 'site not found'. You have to enter 'google.com'.

Cheers,

Nigel

You sure about that?

Says pretty clearly in the search box...

"Site address or country"
