Google Broken? Not down, but broken?


Google Broken?, originally uploaded by JoshB.

I was just doing some research for a presentation tomorrow, and Googled “harvard podcasts”. I know there are results for that, because a) it’s obvious, and b) I was looking at them earlier today.

But I got no results.

I tried a couple of other searches, like my own name, that I know have results, and got the same thing. I double-checked my spelling.

I’ve had Google be unavailable before, or return an error message, but I’ve never seen it just break like this. Yikes.

Here is the exact search URL I was using (the search started from the Google Toolbar for Firefox):

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&rls=GGGL%2CGGGL%3A2006-11%2CGGGL%3Aen&q=harvard&btnG=Search

Is anyone else seeing this? Does it work for you when you click that link?

I’m starting to wonder if this is a sign of the apocalypse or something… 😉

EDIT: Well, it’s working again now. The sky is not falling. Go back to your homes – nothing to see here.

  1. Yep, I am seeing the same thing. If I switch browsers it seems to work. Do you have toolbar installed? I’m thinking it’s some kind of cookie issue.

    I’m noticing the same (even though you say it’s working now!) I’m wondering if it will hit the news.
