While I was looking at the search results for the title tag of a post that I recently posted today, I noticed that Google’s grammar is less than to be desired. You’d think with all those PhDs at Google the grammar would be better. Dear Google, please fix the bad grammar in your search results to you are not suggesting something that has bad grammar. Take a look at the following screen capture, where Google is suggesting something other than what I searched for:
I searched for “What Happened When I Removed the Blogroll from My Site“, the last post where I wrote about what happened when I removed my blogroll.
Google suggested the following in a “did you mean”:
Did you mean: What Happened When I Remove the Blogroll from My Site
No, Google, I did *NOT* mean “what happened when I remove the blogroll. I meant “what happened when I removed the blogroll from my site.”
Shouldn’t Google say this instead?
Did you mean: What Will Happen When I Remove the Blogroll from My Site
I know this is probably all automated and what typically is searched for, but the grammar there just stinks. You can’t show what happened in the past when you remove something. This leads me to start investigating when and why they suggest something different, suggest something that includes “did you mean”.
