Maybe I just picked a bad search phrase – golf hampton roads – but Google responded with more than 2 million results. But two results stood out, and not in a good way, on the first page. The #1 result was a HamptonRoads.com page – from 2008. Fourth under a list of courses was this:Screen Shot 2013-04-09 at 9.13.06 AMIs #Bing on to something when they say they are building a better search mouse-trap?  I ran the same search on Bing and the top three results seemed much better – all had Hampton Roads and Golf in the URL. But Bing also featured AndysTaxi and ranked it even higher. And Bing doesn’t have a list of local Golf Courses.

Guess I’ll go back to my opening line – maybe I just used a bad search term. Even Google and Bing consider the term Hampton Roads weak…
