digitalmars.D - Google alert for "dlang"

reply Andrei Alexandrescu <SeeWebsiteForEmail erdani.org> writes:
Hi folks, I've set up a Google Alert (https://google.com/alerts) for the 
word "dlang". The good news is, Google has gotten as far as 
understanding "dlang" is related to "D". The bad news is, Google is now 
sending alerts on a bunch of irrelevant uses of "D", such as "Coeur 
D'Alene", "Giro d'Italia", "Balon d'Or", "Group D" etc.

If you set up an alert for "dlang" and get irrelevant hits in your 
email, you can click on "Flag as irrelevant" to send Google feedback. In 
all likelihood that automatically tweaks the features used by the 
engine. Presumably the more the better, so hereby I invite you to 
participate in crowdsourcing this.


Thanks,

Andrei

Google Search and its proxies (e.g. startpage) have also stopped 
trying to correct dlang as golang. This is a welcome change!
