If that heading didn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what will. When my mom decided to do a little Google searching this morning she was confronted with the warning message: “This site may harm your computer”, on EVERY SINGLE RESULT. Then, maybe I thought it was only because she was using Internet Explorer, so I tried on Chrome and Firefox, no dice. Still the warnings. Then, curious as I am, searched for Google. Even Google’s own sites have the warnings appended to them. Clicking the warning brought you to this Google help article. This is a very sad embarrassing day for Google. However, right at this second, I did another search, and the warnings were removed. How’s that for quick fixes?
If I could tell Google one thing, it would be to setup a test site, with a test search engine, and screw up on that site.
I don’t know how many people were blessed to see this hilarious screw up, but I’m just glad I shot a screenie of Google warning you that they might harm your computer.
Have a good day everyone.
