    Try entering " Bill Cosby Rap " ...
    you'd think it would give you the word Rape.

    Word is, there seems to be some possible collusion between Google and Hillary Clinton these days.
    Maybe time to start using Bing !

    SEM/SEO is a major source of revenue for all the search engine providers.

    Or when there is so much relevant content about a person concerning both Rap and Rape, it specifically gives you results based upon the word.

    if you put in just Bill Cosby, third link down is the sexual assault allegations wiki page.

    I have this vague recollection of a piece in the new yorker or probably the intercept (rolling Stone maybe) about Larry Page's work for Google on behalf of the State Department...

    Scratch that, not Larry Page. I was thinking of Eric Schmidt...

    The very idea of a completely neutral search engine may be:

    A) unattainable (choices made on the algorithm will impact results, these design choices are made by humans)

    B) undesirable (some human curation may actually be better than "straight neutral" - what would "straight neutral" searching even look like? For example, arranging purely by popularity substitutes curation by business rules engine choices for curation by the mob, which has its own challenges)

    This is also a running gag on HBO's Silicon Valley! Nefarious Hooli founder Gavin Belson scrubbing his own search engine for negative press. This show is great.

    I typed in "Bill Cosby Rap" and it gave me Bill Cosby Rap.

    When ever I look at Bermuda on a map I'm surprised by where it is.

    Sure have! My brother lived in Hamilton for 3 years working for a Japanese-British insurance company as an actuary. I paid like $9usd for toothpaste!
