(In other words, one day I do a Google search using certain keywords and find nothing of relevance, then I search in Trove with the same keywords and correct some articles, but not long afterwards I repeat the same Google search and find the very same articles I had corrected in Trove.)  Maybe Trove has a policy to feed Google with links to corrected articles?
