Back? It’s amusing–and more than a little ironic–that Google’s algorithm intended to take you to the top search result for “search” does not point to itself, but to Microsoft’s Live Search tool, which officially went live last month. It’s bound to inspire conspiracy theories, but a Google spokeswoman says it’s not a bug or a hack, but a matter of mathematics.
According to Google, this is normal. Results will change over time because Google is always updating their search technology. Still, it is pretty funny. Just for the hell of it, I entered “Search” in MS Live Search and Google doesn’t show up in the results.
