Can Search Engines Be Used as Tools for Web-Link Analysis? A Critical View.
Snyder, Herbert; Rosenbaum, Howard
Journal of Documentation, v55 n4 p375-84 Sep 1999
Investigates problems of using commercial search engines for Web-based research. Findings indicate that search engines are highly variable in their results, are limited in the search functions they offer, have poorly and/or incorrectly documented functions, use search logics that are opaque, and change search functions they offer over time.
