Bizarre Search Results

At least once a day I rely on my "live Search" or Google to find a web page I want to research, and more often than not, I have to sit back and chuckle at how precisely accurate, but how totally wrong the search results are:

Lippert manufacturers frames for Montana, but did you know Dennis Lippert is a famous stained glass artist in Montana!

Try a search for Big Sky, a premium Montana 5th wheel line. Did you know Big Sky is also a home brewery supply store located in Montana!

I won't even mention "fifth airborne"!

Anybody else as easily entertained as I am?

Brad, to get a more positive search put the words between brackets such as "Big Sky" +RV
Just putting the phrase in brackets forces Google to search for a phrase and not just Big or Sky
Adding the +RV has it search for the phrase as well as RV in the description.
This will help eliminate some of your fun but will get you faster results

Without the brackets try to Google the phrase- fifth airborne
Now try to Google "fifth airborne" +rv

Thanks Glenn, I didn't know that. I did end up just going to the MOC links page you prepared and found Lippert right away - thanks for that too!

But, it is fun to see all the crazy matches that come back.

Brad, I do a lot of genealogy research on the web so you can guess what I get trying to Google my DRIVER family. I have a list of 35 different types of DRIVER's. From "train driver's" to "stationary engine driver's". Lot of fun.

I just so happened to do that the other night. Not only did it list most of the cities I have lived in all my life, it listed my age. It also listed names of people who MAY be related to me (none are). And for a little bit of money, it would pretty much tell everything about me but my bathroom habits...LOL Kind of scary...

Brad,

You're right, search engines are dumb.

I used to use Glenn's solution, worked real well, but if you would want a more graphical way, try using the Google Advanced search. You are given the ability to add words, or eliminate words etc.

Give it a try.
