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.

I know that there are a lot of things to discover here in HubPages and I think I can learn more by getting involved in a forum where experts and experienced hubbers can help me. For these past days, one of the things that caught my attention was my hubber score and hubscore. I got low...

Forgive me if this has already been discussed but I have been away for a while. I just searched for one of my hubs using Google chrome and it came up with a yellow warning button next to it saying "this site has a bad reputation". I searched for many of my other hubs and got...
