I have posted a question on Stack Overflow in which I'm asking users about why Google is so fast that got closed almost immediately.
At the very least, I'd like to know implementation details (such as code) of the specific programming algorithms that make Google so fast because I want to use them as well. I even received an answer from a user who told me the name one such algorithm used for database indexing which I may use.
I wonder if you could tell me:
Stack Overflow's FAQ states that questions related to "a software algorithm" are acceptable to be asked. Is that true or am I missing something?
Are algorithm questions also unacceptable? There seem to be users that are asking questions in which they appear to not know if an algorithm exists for their issue or not - they are not specific at all. For what it counts, they may be asking a question related more to mathematics then programing algorithms. I believe that the fact that at least I know that there is a special algorithm that makes Google fast makes my question more relevant for the algorithm tag on SO than those who are asking "if it exists" and are not sure. (Similar to them, I also want to see some code if possible) - I simply want some implementation details regarding algorithms to make my site fast as well.
Would you mind shedding some light on me on what is the meaning behind the following tags on Stack Overflow and how/when to use them: design, implementation, database, design-pattern, database-design?
Why didn't the question at least get moved to one of the other Stack Exchange sites? Isn't there a place for it on Stack Exchange?
There are many similar or identical and even much broader questions on SO which are never closed (please let me know if you cannot find any and I'll try to find at least 10 clear examples of these type of question, all of which will be recently asked).
I know all my questions have been closed but why this one in particular? Is my future doomed on SO under this account? Do I have to open another one (I personally prefer to use this account if possible)?
I found the answer for the question and posted it myself. Is there something wrong with that?
Thanks for all your advice.
PS: Ultimately I would like that this question sees the light of day on Stack Exchange preferably on an IT related site - so if I'm being so wrong that I cannot post it at all here, could you please give a few pointers if its possible for me to paraphrase it somehow so I get posted it here anyway?
