something weired still showing in germany..
if u search for a keyword with a wrong spelling.. ie "webbsite" instead of "website", google ask for "Did u mean Website?"...but...
for some keywords only, im looking for ie "webites" and google asks "did u mean websites websites?"... and when im hitting it, google asks "Did u mean websites websites websites websites?" and so on....
I haven't noticed this behaviour so far, but you are right. The problem appear for a search in german [google.com], while a search in english [google.com] doesn't show this problem. The only explanation I can think of for this strange behaviour is that it's a bug.
A friend in Australia reports that Google corrects "television" to "television television".
Fixes the bug: * Switching to an inactive datacenter (currently www-sj or www-zu). * Using a US-based proxy.
Does not fix the bug: * Switching between the 7 active datacenters. * Removing URL parameters other than q=. * Using www.google.co.uk (even though this causes him to see .uk ads). * Using Internet Explorer instead of Mozilla.
