digitalmars.D - Searching for things related to the D language...

when I search for "video compression D" (without the quotes) I don't want a

transforms...".  I had a similar problem when C# and .NET were new.  It 
wasn't long, however, before Google and the others "trained" their search 
engines to understand and correctly interpret these terms.  What would it 
take to get them to do the same for D?

Best,

Keep using it and making web pages that talk about it? But either way it'll probably still be more fruitful to search for "video compression D programming" than just "video compression D". --bb

Just try this with C on google. It doesn't seem to be trained for this. Only 2 of the first 10 results are related to the programming language. For this reason Walter always propagates to use the term "D Programming Language" on websites related to D.
