I noticed something new (to me) in Google over coffee this morning.
I was at a party over the weekend, and met a dog with so much personality that I wanted to know more about the breed. Naturally I went to Google.
I typed in “skipper key.” Do this search, and let your eyes wander down the page a little bit. I had the breed name wrong, (it’s schipperke, which I never would have guessed in a million years). But how did Google know that I was interested in “skipper key dog” since I only typed in “skipper key?” Now scroll down a little more to the “also see” references.
I’m sure I’ve missed some an announcement of new developments, although I do read John Battelle’s Searchblog so I feel fairly up-to-date. I’m throwing myself on your collective mercy. What’s going on here? When did Google start conducting reference interviews instead of just politely correcting my spelling?
And check out the schipperke!
