A few days ago I talked about a strange instance where a search result on Google would populate the auto-complete, but return zero results. This is certainly an odd thing to see happen, but it looks like I've helped resolve the issue for some people on the Internet.
Here's today's search result for the same term on DuckDuckGo:
Absolutely nothing, but DuckDuckGo does go the extra mile to help us find the answers we seek. Heck, they even go so far as to pre-populate the link with the same query, saving people seconds of time with pointless re-entry and page reloading. Well done!
But how about Bing?
Absolutely nothing. Spelled correctly? Yep. Using synonyms for a person's name is rather nonsensical, as is using "less specific keywords". That's like typing "Jason Japan" into Bing to find me and sifting through pages and pages of Jason Mraz, Jason Statham, Jason Becker, and Jason Kidd results. Alas ...
How does Google fare after just two days?
Very nice. Another obscure reference to something that will likely only be seen by interested people studying English using Pearson Longman textbooks.
You're welcome, Google.
