Search is not about wisdom, ...

... it's about mankind's stupidity.

Or how else can you explain that a Google search for the term "indiduell" yields 20 million results, about 14 million only in German.
Results 1 - 10 of about 13,700,000 German pages for indiduell. (0.18 seconds)
The word does not exist.
Its a misspelling and mispronunciation of "individuell" (=individual [leo]) - which interestingly only has "...13,800,000 German pages for individuell. (0.11 seconds) " on Google...

I know, those figures are not accurate, but still...

this can be compared to "seperat" or the mighty "Einfallspinsel", seen on a TV Quiz(!)

btw your blog entry is no longer true:
26.400 for indiduell
vs.
12.600.000 for individuell

what kind of magic, google conspiracy theory or intelligence boost might that be the result of?

Enrice,
that's weird... either google changed their search and all those presumably blogs are no longer indexed,..
or..
I seem to have 13M+ readers...
yeah, right. very likely.
