As part of my translation work, I frequently need to carry out searches on technical medical terms and/or foreign language terms.
Google's assumptions are driving me insane, because I constantly have to keep re-inputting what I really want. For example, just now, I needed to search on "hypochondrion", and G immediately assumed I cannot spell and that I really wanted to search on "hypochondriac".
Does anyone know whether there is any setting within Google search to stop these assumptions taking precedence over the terms I actually enter into the search box?
If you are logged into a Google account, you can click options (by the user name, far right of the screen), select "search settings," then choose "Do not use Google instant."
Thank you! Will change settings.
Heavens! I didn't really Alta Vista was still in existence. I used to use it a long time ago. Will investigate it again.
Arrgh, went to Alta Vista, but got thrown into Yahoo UK search.
Did the search on the example I cited:
"We have included hypochondriac results - Show only hypochondrion"
Why??? Why not just give me the search results I ask for without forcing me to make extra clicks.

Lately, I've noticed some Hubbers Have Their Picture along side Google Search Results for their Hubs. How is this done? Seems like it may be helpful to entice people to click on a Hub link in Google.
