Finding A Bug in Google Search

September 24, 2011

Searching for my last article in google, I picked "Vitamin QA" to see if anyone else had used that phrase.

Well Google thought I meant to say "Vitamin A" and showed me that, along with a helpful link of:

Search instead for "Vitamin QA"

Click on that link and the url (at least in Safari) becomes

& quot; Vitamin QA& quot;

without the spaces. Now it does a literal search on those letters which isn't the same at all.

You'd think Google with its huge staff and daunting interview process could find a QA person or two for its principal product.

Guess the Vitamin QA is too strong for Google!

Next thing you know I will find a bug in a Microsoft product...
