CDT Report Finds Government Information Lacking in Search Engines

The Center for Democracy and Technology has issued a report that details how government information is not fully represented in commercial search web sites.  One would think that government web sites would be fully available to crawlers, but they're not.  Some materials available on web sites aren't even available through USA.gov, which is the government's own portal and search engine.  This is just shocking news, except possibly to reference librarians who regularly use government web sites.

The report is here, and an article about it is in PC World.
