Google rolls out an unusual update to Search.
Google is always doing its best to provide the most relevant search results for any given query. However, sometimes, that’s not always possible. Nonetheless, the search engine giant has fail-safes in place to prevent such things from happening.
With that said, the company announced quite an unusual update to Google Search. Users will be made aware when the results for their query have lower-than-average quality.
What does this mean exactly? When Google is not really able to match a user’s search query with relevant results, it will display a message notifying the user.
The reasons for the lack of relevant results range from misspelling to not enough information on the web (which is rarely the case, but it happens). When possible, this new feature will provide alternative searches as well as tips on how users can refine their search queries in order to find the information they seek.
The message shouldn’t show up too often as there is always something helpful the search engine giant can find. However, it will certainly help users save time that they would otherwise spend sifting through irrelevant search results.
