I was curious, (I've always liked that kid) so I decided to search on Google for ... will smith biography. The star was nowhere to be found! I was astounded. Instead a message popped up saying, "will" is a very common word and was not included in your search.
I thought, OK ... maybe if I use capitals ... so I typed Will Smith biography. Still nothing.
I then searched for "Will Smith biography" and I thought ahha ... success! But the first site listed had nothing but links to sites about the actor.
Aside from the obvious problems, is any one else getting completely irrelevant or "left field" results when searching for anything other than the obvious business related keywords?
To be honest, that was the very first time I've ever used quotes when searching. I've never had that much trouble finding what I was looking for on Google before.
Does Joe surfer know to use "quotes" if they can't find satisfactory results? Does your mother, father, brother, uncle, etc.?
If they don't know, Google has:
"will" is a very common word and was not included in your search. [details]
Just click on "details", and follow the instructions how to force a word to be searched.

Too bad Google can't figure that out.

Google in his war against SEO is losing the point of view of common surfer.
(Sorry about my bad english)
