From the article:
“On NPR’s Science Friday radio program, I heard an interview with Microsoft Research Lab co-director Eric Horvitz. He was telling a story about how search results impact people’s perception.
How Search Impacts “Cyber-Chondriacs”
In the story, people who had a severe headache would search for it in search engines. Search results listing “brain tumor” as a potential cause would come up just about as much as “coffee withdrawal”.”
A really good reminder of the basic rule in marketing: If you don’t optimize your messages, you will never be able to reach the right audience.
