Interesting. Type 'search' into Google and what's the first result? "Google, of course". Not so. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&q=search&btnG=Search

It's because "MSN Search" has "search" in the title. But when I have Personalized Search turned on the first result is Google...

And Google ranks 8th in Yahoo! search while it is nowhere to be find on MSN and Ask search (at least I didn't find it). Ask's first result for 'search' is Ask.com itself which leads me to believe that the result must be 'weighted' towards Ask.com pages there.
