Anyone have a translation of the 10 Google Commandments?

1. "One two three": Never use less than 3 words.
2. Avoid stop words
3. Prefer nouns (sometimes, adjectives) over verbs.
4. "to be or not to be": put phrases in quotes.
5. Use the words you expect to find on result pages.
6. "AND OR NOT": Honor the syntax of Boole.
7. "abcdefghijklmopq": Write everything else lower-case.
8. Honor Wikipedia and offline encyclopedias.
9. DiVeRsItY: Use other search engines as well for better results.
10. Call the yellow pages for advice. Sometimes it works wonders!
