I tried it a few hours ago and I had to almost type the "Y" in her name.

Someone out there try it now...start typing crooked hillary into a google search and see how far you have to type before it fills in the blanks.

I tried it again and it comes up immediately but that may be because I tried it once. Or, they got caught and fixed it.

I got to Crooked Hilla

and this is what came up:




crooked hillary Bernie

Edit to add: I don't use Google and have never researched Bernie using any search engine. The fact that they came up with Bernie's name in a "Crooked Hillary" search should give pause to Bernie supporters. They need to vote for anyone but Hillary.

And...? It seems some, including breitbart, don't understand how these things work. I actually had to teach my middle school students how this system works several weeks ago.

How what works? Search algorithms or political rigging?

I'm a search specialist and I can tell you the auto-fill is definitely screwy in Google. It's no worse than the way they "update" their search to knock off sites with strong organics to force them to bump up their adwords bids... right? Panda's and Penguin's are cute, right?

I will say that a few hours ago this didn't happen:

searched: hillary ind

and #1 auto fill is Hillary Indictment

So, maybe they're resolving the "problem"

I don't know why you started a second thread but in doing so you're using the wrong phrase. To reproduce the results, type in 'Hillary Clinton crim' in bing and google. Or 'Hillary Clinton ind'.

I'm getting the results they did yesterday, so I must have to clear my cache.

That shouldn't be the case if you're using Firefox, at least. When google presents results you already typed it'll have a little clock icon next to it, if you use the search toolbar that is.

It doesn't hurt to clear the cache though

on Bing "Crooked Hillary" is the second instant suggestion offered when you type in "Crooked". The first being "crooked river staints". I will try to get it to #1...
