Google search for 'HTTP' returns big web sites

GoogleGuy Says

Importance: Medium

A member notes that a google search for HTTP returns some of the largest web sites on the web, pages that have nothing to do with the HTTP protocol. GoogleGuy responds by suggesting a more refined search query.

GoogleGuy Says: [Link to quote]

Hey, if he's looking for the http spec, I'd make the query "http spec" (without the quotes) instead of just "http". Or, the ODP category that we show for either query has the info too:
Computers > Internet > Protocols > HTTP

No idea what Google returned for this query in the past, but sometimes being more specific or clicking into the ODP category will help narrow a search.
