Alright.. I did one quick search to see which one in my opinion is more relevant in their searches:
What did I search for: psychedlic furs
Google returned 173,000
Yahoo returned 483,000
I took the first two hits from google to compare to yahoo. Both hit the same fan site as #1 but yahoo didn't even list the artists main website url at sony, but instead was at #19 unlike google that had it at #2. The link at #19 to the same site but was for an Overview page instead, deeper into the official site. I browsed up until about 120ish hits or so and never saw the url for the actual link to the main official website. To me, a link to their main website where you can then browse from cause well, I'm sure they are going to have psychedlic furs mentioned at least on each page at the same site, why not link directly to the main url page? Sure this is only one search and I'm wondering how many of those 200,000 hits google didn't find are even relevant to the search terms..

If you link to the second hit, it's the artists official website by sony, their label.

So to me, google finding and linking the artists main official website as #2 instead of yahoo's #19 to one of the official sites pages deeper into the site clearly tells me in my own opinion that google is better. Like I said, quality not quantity is better to me..
Oh well though, who the hell would go thru thousands of search links anyways.. if it doesn't hit within the first few pages, I'm not going any further most likely and going to change my search terms to something more detailed to get better results.
