    Install “IE Tab” add-on, and just emulate IE for the google.com main search page…

    This is the work-around until Google and Firefox get their act together.

    Looks like they fixed it as of about a half hour ago. Pretty big bug for Google. I originally tested it in IE, FF, and Chrome, so it was definitely across the board for a short time.

    Yes Google said human error was to blame, all comes down to a / in the wrong place at the wrong time. (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/01/this-site-may-harm-your-computer-on.html)

    I was working late in the night and needed to search for some solution on a technical issue. I came across this issue and initially was totally shocked as the websites I have worked came a spam. But soon I realized that there might be some issue with Google.

    Great catch! Google rarely messes up. I too read the blog post from Google that JAB_au spoke of above. It’s nice to see the almighty Google make a mistake and then speak of it publicly. Thanks for catching this screen shot!

    Strange, they might be updating their spam rules.

    Is this happening again?

    Google only produces results that match all of your search terms, either in the text of the page or in the text of the links pointing to the page. This spares you the frustration of viewing a multitude of results that have nothing to do with your search terms.
