Funny Google Search Suggestions

Google’s Autocomplete service has provided some fun and quirky suggestions since Google fully launched the service back in 2008. For those who don’t know what Google Autocomplete is: when you start typing words into the Google search engine, Google provides a list of possible suggestions to complete your query. I tried a few searches today, using google.co.uk, and here are some screenshots of the funny results…

Today’s health and safety tip…

 1-Never-put.gif

I’ve been wondering a lot about this lately…

2-What-do-I-do-if

Well, it’s a good question. There’s something else I really need to know…

3-Is-It-Wrong

Whilst I’m on the subject…

4-Why-Does

I’m desperate for the toilet, but my friend’s flat has triple velvet toilet paper…

5-I-want-to

I know 3 people called Paul… now, that’s what I call choice!

Hang on, what’s this little round sweet I’ve just found? There’s a note with it…

6-Please-use-th

I really love my cat. But he has a very unusual appearance…

Google - My Cat

Listen, I’ve got a friend who is vertically challenged. We are planning a late night burglery, so I really want to know…

Google Autocomplete - Midget

Enough of this nonsense. It’s time we asked some important questions. As someone who uses Facebook, I feel I must find out…

Facebook-Is-For

That seems rather harsh! I’m also a fan of Twitter…

Twitter-Is-For

Well, I’m not sure which of those applies to me… ah, yes, all of them.

Let’s finish off with a comparison. I know a lot of American and British people. So, Google…

why-are-americans

why-are-british-people

So, what causes these spurious suggestions to appear when you type a search into Google? Well, it’s all down to their algorithms finding these phrases in pages throughout the Internet. That’s right, somewhere on the Internet the phrase “I want to do a poo at Paul’s” has been mentioned a large number of times.

What I am now wondering is whether a new phrase could be added to Google Autocomplete if it is mentioned enough times. Shall I start a campaign for people to add the phrase “I want to lick Barack Obama’s armpit” into their blogs and web pages?
