A Blog On Tracking Failed Search Results: Failed SERPs

Returning quality search results is not easy, Google and Microsoft have teams of people who work on the problem each day.

Unfortunately, finding examples of search results that are not ideal is not all that uncommon. To help track these poor search results, Rishabh Singla started a new blog named Failed SERPs. He posts daily screen shots of examples of how the search results are a failure.

For example, Google returns ten search results but all of them are from YouTube. Another example, the searcher looks for a documentary named The Lost Day and Google finds the missing day instead.

Those are two of many examples and the blogger promises to keep up his work posting examples of failed search results.

Have you recently seen failed search results on Google or Bing? If so, what were they?
