Right, but the title often says more than the wiki location. And in the 
case of the Laptop page, the location says Laptops, while nobody would be 
looking for the plural, I guess :-/

I guess Google is too smart ?

On Google you also get a lot of centos.org results, but the wiki (the most 
important one if we want people to first read it before asking questions) 
is missing from the top 100 !

Same for the Laptops page.

Maybe it is personalising the results in bad way for me ? :)
