don’t know what academics seem to have such faith in “Googling.” To many, it is not an acceptable form of research, because the stuff it comes up with could be written by anyone. Google Scholar is marginally better, even though Google won’t reveal its limitations, and even then it usually pairs work down by simply its listing in, say, Pubmed, or SSRN.
