While the Internet is loaded with lots of good information, there is plenty of misinformation as well -- especially when it comes to controversial topics.
The H-1B visa issue is no exception. According to a recent story in the Times of India, Indian bloggers are now working to tweak Google search results for the term "H-1B official website" so that the results do not prominently feature "the official website of the emigration party of Nevada." As an example of the intelligent discourse therein, the site asks whether its readers "are sick and tired of seeing your country turned into a Third World sewer by immigration?"
The Times story, dated April 11, indicates that the emigration party of Nevada's site appeared first on the list of results. While the bloggers' efforts are helping, it apparently isn't easy to move the Google mountain; the site was bumped down to fifth in the results as of this morning.
Will efforts to create a semantic Web help? That remains to be seen. In the meantime, just remember that Web surfing can get rough and most folks have an agenda -- be it political, financial or other.
