    Is Expedia Feeding Google Bunk Results?
    I did a search for Georgia Dome on Google (I couldn't remember what the actual URL was for the site). Of course, the Georgia Dome website comes up first, followed by Wikipedia (go figure that!). Some Image Results followed, I scrolled down to see what they were of. Following those was a page on atlanta.net about the stadium, still good there. That's followed by the little Maps info they show in results (address, ratings, etc). It was what was next that threw me.



    So I clicked it for the hell of it, however I get a page not found.

    But upon checking the cache, I get the following:



    That's all but an absolutely fresh cached copy.

    More likely they're using a page creator like a Page Torrent or something similar, which delivers content based on keyword searches. They must be checking validity after the fact.
