Is Google clever?
Google is an extremely advanced search engine and should most definitely be described as clever.
Owls are clever, but not as clever as some people think. Usually they think owls are very clever because of its wise looking face and its quiet wing beats. Clever is how it responds to and solves problems. But owls do have very clever hunting skills. They may sit there and wait a whole night for the perfect chance to strike at their prey.
1) Governments, agencies, companies, and political parties can have content removed from google by filing a complaint. Fortunately google doesn't remove everything requested, but the majority of the time they have to. 2) spammers are getting clever, making pages that can appear to have the exact phrase you searched for- so their websites, which are completely unrelated to what you wanted, get top hits.
