resultados inválidos (pistas falsas)


Explanation:
Hello. Look at this: Link 1: "False Drop (~Resultado inválido)
Una página obtenida como resultado de una consulta en los motores de búsqueda o directorios que no es relevante a dicha consulta. Esto puede deberse a alguna de las siguientes razones:
* La página contiene la palabra clave utilizada, pero en otro contexto, con un significado diferente o con una interrelación distinta a la esperada.
* La página es un intento de "spamdexing".
* El motor de búsqueda tiene una falla en su base de datos o un error en su programa de consultas."
Well. I studied a course in NZ on Information Retrieval and Reference tools and this phrase came up a few times. If I understand what you say right, I think then it's about teaching people how to use the net efficiently, i.e. how to do a search and avoid ending up in the deep ends of available data, using Boolean logic to narrow searches and reduce the quantity of links, etc. Even having found this link I would call it "pista falsa", to me it conveys better the sense of it...but then I've no personal sites on the net (Outdated anonymous moi!!!) and can't even prove it. Good luck with it :-))
