Strange results in Google, blanked out results?

by Peter Young on October 15, 2009 · 5 comments

Following on from @davenaylor’s earlier tweet on yet another Google geo-targeting fail, I decided to go on a quick snoop around the Google search results.

One of the stranger results I came across was this one – when typing the query in ‘Google Pluto’


The result itself is one for the Google 3D warehouse project, however you will notice the second ‘phrase’ in appears to be blanked out, something which personally I haven’t previously come across within day to day SERP’s

Any other strange results within the Googlesphere noticed recently?

Intersting find, but it’s actually not that weird. What I think it is, is this Sketchup and model sharing site google has, someone simply registered under the name “█████████” to mess with people.

And how it’s worked nicely ;)
Remember, Google will cache and display and character in any language in its results.

Its very effective within the results page itself, can see 101 optimisers running of now to add to their pages :)

Hahaha, but would you submit like a “3D” model of your landing page?
I wonder if there are anyways to use that for optimization, probably too far off for our types of blogs. Maybe if you did 3D modeling it would work great.

Would you want a 3D model of your landing page. Could send out the usual 3d glasses for use with the site :)
