The One Query Google Instant Can’t Handle

Author: Gab Goldenberg

Trying out Google instant, I saw a particular query on which Google blanked. Notice the size of the below screenshot.

Google Instant Sucks

Yeah, Google ain’t got nothing. (And I got double negatives and great grammar.)

p.s. Wonder how many searches (percentage wise) come from browser search bar, where Google Instant doesn’t apply.

  1. But it seems to function like that for most 'obscenities' too - and isn't dependent on the 'google instant' before it... presumably it's to prevent embarrassing results from weird mistypes... I hate to think!

  2. Same result for "adult diapers" - NOT that I was Googling adult diapers - just playing with Google instant to see what worked and what didn't. And I'm a big "use Google in the search bar" kinda guy. Or I use my iGoogle which isn't impacted by Google instant either.

  3. Of course you weren't googling that David ... and certainly not in the past 48 hours from your home office with the double-locking door after your wife was asleep ;). Hehe just kidding

  4. That makes a lot of sense - thanks for pointing that out, Luke!

  6. (0). to force google to get out of your way entirely , disable java and javascript only for google site (0p3ra + [F12] ) (1). set your homepage & search page to http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en or https://www.google.com/ (2). to MAKE google pay attention make your homepage & search page = https://www.google.com/webhp?q=google+instant+sucks they will not be able to ignore it !
