Mystery Google: This is Someone Else's Search Result

mystery google
I have read about a buzz about Mystery Google and I wonder what the hype is all about. I initially thought that Mystery Google is just making an appearance in time for the Halloween.

The black background makes it a bit spooky and the results are rather strange. I tried entering "pumpkin carvings" and the result is about measles and information about this disease. It is weird. Then I searched about "balloon boy" which gives me results related to "find sexy websites."

It goes with the simple premise that if you enter a search query in the search bar, it will give you a result of whatever the person before you searched for. No matter what you search for, it will not provide you what you are looking for. It will always give you random results.

You can think of it as just a waster of time. However, in a way this is also a fun tool if you are curious to know what others’ are searching and an interesting tool in discovering something that you are not interested in.

You can try Mystery Google and get to see what mysterious search it will bring to you.

On one level, that is quite interesting. On another, it is quite irritating. I don't know that I would have the patience to sit and play with it...

This is interesting. I posted a blog about it and linked it to your site. I hope you don't mind. ^_^
