...?

No...what we're talking about is what the title of the thread is (Plagiarism and Reliable Sources) but more specifically how Google is not a source, but a search engine, and how you can use it to find good sources.

I really do not like to insult or argue with other users, but, here is a fact.

Google searches are based on popularity. Wikipedia, people can change it with ease. Other websites, some will be reliable, some will be forums, some will be a bunch of random words, the rest will be, you know what.

Yes, they do appear in order of popularity.

Not that anyone is claiming Wikipedia is a reliable source, but you can check their sources and for the most part it's correct.

You can use Google, or any search engine, to get good sources. You just have to look and it's not likely to be the first 1-2 links.

I always try not to plagiurize when I write. It gets very annoying, though.
