I liked Google already, but now I have another reason to like their search engine. It has evolved to the point where you start typing what you’re about to search for in the search box, and it starts making suggestions based on common searches people make and based on the content of the sites Google indexes (actually I’m not 100% sure what it’s based on, but those two ideas make sense to me).
I just entered my name into the Google search engine (and don’t act like you’ve never done it), without using speech makrs to narrow the search down, and before I even searched for anything, this is what Google suggested (the text in the top box is what I just typed, the rest is the three suggestions that Google made):
I understand the glenn peoples billboard suggestion, because there’s a Glenn Peoples at coolfer music, who have a popular blog. But the other two? One guess why they’re there. 🙂
- Suggest a link!
- Dawkins cuts McGrath, includes Haggard
- Please update your links
- We're number 27! We're number 27!
- God of the Gaps?
One thought on “Google knows my name!”

I despise this fantastically annoying ‘feature’, and most definitely have it turned off.
