How to...Why is...

Google can be as enthusiastic as girl in class who knows all the answers to the teacher's questions.
Recently, Vishal discovered that in a Gmail Atom feed. I for one, found something similar. At first I thought, "Why is Google being so silly?". Take a look at the suggestions (automatically generated) given by the Google search bar in Fx3 for "How to ".


Then I tried with some other keywords, I've got a grab of that too.

This is when I realized (and with some shame, remembered), that Google gives these suggestions based on frequently searched keywords! Woah, are there really so many people who have second thoughts about their marriage?! Ask google indeed!!


Update. Seems the suggestions change with time and is also affected by what you searched. Sample, a N(a)RI-in-US's results:

I thought it also depended in what you searched for, because I got totally different suggestions!

How to preserve Tomatoes, I wonder how many people actually browse for such things, For that matter how many actually post suggestions for it..
It got wierd when i decided to google it.. There seems to be a lot of stuff on the Internet, Most contributors are the industry people who use tomatoes for their products..
Now i know, If u have a question, there is an answer.. :)

Strangely i got some wierd suggestion from goole when i typed ' how to', If that is supposed to be from what i browsed previosly, I'm in a tight spot!

Maybe Google is proving a fact I proposed on my blog!

My 'How To' suggestions are totally different and 100% Family content!

@ akshaya
I've recently been taken by cooking, seeing as I had so much time on my hands this past month

@kunal
You'd be surprised at how many people need to know that! and if you look closely, you get a lot of "preserving for home" info too!

Hail google!

One thing is just taken as a fact now, If u have a question, Google it to find the answer, Whatever it may be.

I guess all of this is because of thousands of online forums, Comments from the user's are also given as a search result. Google maharaj ki jai!
