Effective Home Treatment For Colic, What Do Search Engines Know?

Apr 22, 2008
What makes me maintain that Search Engines are partly to blame for babies still crying with colic?

When baby colic happens to a newborn the situation is soon distressing. Quickly parents learn why their baby is crying so much and a good percentage of them have a home computer and look for help in finding a home treatment for colic by using one of the search engines.

If you think about it you'll soon see we all make this mistake and place a lot of trust in search engines when wanting to find a cure for baby's colic or find an answer to something else.

Whether dealing with a baby with colic, tackling a personal matter, coming to the aid of friends who need some help, or feeling the need to learn more on a subject we have to write about for the company website, what's the first thing we all do?

We use the search engines! And a lot of us 'Google' it. We do it so much that the word Google has become a verb! We tell friends with questions to 'Google' it. Need a home treatment for colic? Anyone could guess what you'll do.

Anyway, we use our favourite search engines and in seconds we're presented with results, showing us what others have written on our subject of interest. In thousands of cases, the subject of interest has been an effective cure for baby colic.

A little hitch with doing this has recently occurred to me. It might be that you already have given this some thought, but here it is... We're using and trusting search engines but they are only software. This software is programmed to look for keywords that are relevant to the search terms used.

This programmed software, the search engines, can't discern truth from mistakes or complete fiction.

When the results presented by the search engines include items written months or years ago, then possibly the items are not true any longer. Maybe they never were. The writer's beliefs are not necessarily the truth. This seems to be the trouble with searches for an effective baby colic remedy.

It's disconcerting. People don't always notice the date but they do expect up-to-date information especially on something as important as a colic remedy.

Now this is happening: People who have to write about baby's colic or indeed any other subject, think they need to know more before starting to write. So they search online to see what's been written before!

Next, of course, those searchers include in their own new article the stuff they've just read in the search results (re-arranging the words of course, to avoid plagiarism) and they appear to be somewhat expert on the subject although they're not. Heaven help colicky babies if parents are relying on these articles which are likely to be inaccurate.

Because of this, babies still have colic and people searching for help on other health issues can be misled by these happenings. It's caused by inaccuracies and mistakes being repeated by article writers and then repeatedly shown in the search results by those engines we trust too much!

As time goes by the situation worsens as more and more websites display incorrect statements. Of course, to the innocent searcher, each website seems to verify the truth of what others have written on their websites and there's hundreds, no thousands, of them writing about colic. Folk start to believe it.

Even inaccurate or just plain old wrong articles and comments can end up being accepted and fully believed if they're backed up by others with the same views. A crying shame for babies suffering from colic and their sleep deprived parents though.

One happy day, fresh content is written by someone new. This is the truth, not just a belief, but the true story of her being able to cure baby colic. So now what will be the result? Depending on her proper use of the relevant keywords her website might appear on page one of some search results. Yes, she did quite well with that!

There is a but though... That 'someone' writing their factual, helpful, accurate stuff is like a Voice in the Wilderness. All the other sites are still being shown, shouting down the little voice of truth. This must happen to so many honest folk trying to share their knowledge with an unbelieving world.

This is why I attach some blame to the search engines for colicky babies not getting a colic cure.
