Google Provides Weird Search Results
Google Search Results Are Impossible To Understand

I've been trying to do something and need help.

I am trying to find the most searched sentences together with non-spaced website names. It didn't take me long to figure out that something is wrong with the search results I've been receiving. For example look up a complete website name that you know doesn't or couldn't possibly exist and see what search results google will provide you with.

Example1a: bemybestfriend.com
Results1a: 19.900.000

Example1b: www.bemybestfriendtoday.com
Results1b: 0

Example2a: bemybestfriend .com
Results2a: 44.600

Example2b: be my best friend .com
Results2b: 573.000.000

Now we can see from this test that Example 1 and 2 has nothing to do with each other as well as 1A and 2A etc. It just doen't make sense! Both sites and this combination of keywords don't exist and probably never did or we most likely even never searched. So how is it that google can find 1 combination and put a huge number over it, but not for the other?
What are Google search results in reality? And what do they mean and how are they determined?

So far, for all I know, the way it looks right now, it makes no sense. Because that means a bewsite like www.bemybestfriend.com must had been searched in google without any spaces, otherwise the site like www.bemybestfriendtoday.com would also show up, but it doesn't. So am I missing something here or what?

I tried "bemybestdog.com" instead, since your first example domain has indeed been previously-registered but has expired, and because this WebmasterWorld thread now ranks for it. The results indicate that Google split my search string into words, and returned pages including "be my best dog," for example.

It may be that you are "challenging" Google's ability to split non-spaced words up into separate words with some of your searches, and so they return few results -- I can't really tell from the info you posted.

Ok, then one more example. Then how is it that

bemybestdog.com has higher results than bemybestdog .com ?

Again, makes no sense... !:?

Now there is another site that contains almost speaking words and not like a title words, but more like when you tell someone to do something. It has 5 words, some of them very long and some are very short. I do not want to disclose the name. But the point is when I search it in google without any spacing in between and with .COM on the end, it gives me up to 300.000.000 in search result. BUT! As soon as I removing the .COM, it gives me 0, zero, nada! Huh?

bemybestdog.com has higher results than bemybestdog .com ?

or

bemybestdogtoy.com and bemybestlookingdog.com = can't be found even in seperate keywords until you remove .COM

and

bemycooldog.com and bemycooldog = 0 in search results with or without .COM

Again, makes no sense no matter how you twist it... !:?

Why in the inclusion of the trailing white space?

Personally I don't like these kind of urls, but that's me. However, I'd suggest you don't put anymore up on Webmasterworld. Two reasons: we don't do "links" and you'll get back results since Google indexes this site FREQUENTLY.

It doesn't matter what urls were used as these were only an example for non-comercial purposes. What is important, can anyone explain the results and what do they really show?

Because otherwise what good are the search results to us if we don't know what they mean?
