All this search science, I don't understand


True, it's just my job seven days a week, but it remains a complete mystery to me how and why it is that when I put the words "heart disease, primarily fibrosing" into the Google search box, the article I want, from the August 21, 2006 Washington Post, comes up first of 75,400 results in 0.3 seconds.

Put the same words into the Washington Post's search box and you get "No Results Found."

You could look it up.

If you put the the article's author, Cheryl Lyn Dybas, into the Post's search box you get the same non-result.

Why should this be?

If the Post can't give an answer better and faster than Google, shouldn't it forget about its own search and simply plug you into Google's?

As I said, it's all a mystery to me.
