How Does Mystery Google Work Mystery Google Gibberish Search Results

Updated on September 26, 2016

How Mystery Google Works

Mystery Google is the latest search engine results set from Google. You simply search as normal, but instead of getting the results you expected and wanted, you're given the results that the person who was searching just before you was after - so, of course, the result will be for that person's keywords. Radical!

It's the latest in a long line of Google Easter Eggs - hidden features...

This has to be the most pointless new Google search tool ever - except, it can be fun. GREAT FUN! It takes you out of your normal world and into the world of other searchers ... who KNOWS where you'll end up today!

How Does Mystery Google Work?

If I search for "Halloween", then you (hundreds of miles away) are the next person to use the feature and you search for "top cars for sale", you'd get websites about parties and ghosts - and not the latest Fiat 500 Arbarth!

For those techies among you, it works on a datacentre-by-datacentre basis, so it's the last Google search performed at the datacentre you're using. So the answer to How Does Mystery Google Work is actually quite straight forward, it's not magic at all!

So, an utterly useless new Google search tool, but it is the hottest and latest, so it's certainly going viral and bringing thousands of people back to using Google as their search engine.

Google Mystery can end up a bit like the famous Two Ronnies sketch, with Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker. This Two Ronnies Mastermind sketch had one of them asking questions and the other one would answer each question two questions after it was asked. Hilarious.

Two Ronnies Sketch: Answering the Question Too Late is transcribed below.

Where Can I Find Mystery Google or Mystery Seeker?

Try out Mystery Google or Mystery Seeker now for yourself.

You used to be able to simply do a Google search at http://mysterygoogle.com and then choose "I am feeling lucky" - this website is now unavailable.

Update: It's been removed now. Google took the website down.

The website is still owned by Google and being managed by their branding protection department.

Answering the Question After it is Asked Sketch

As I said earlier, Mystery Google search results reminded me immediately of the hilarious comedy sketch, based on a Mastermind set, where the contestant was answering each question two questions after it was asked - and with some clever questions it resulted in a hilarious sketch.

I have transcribed this below, for those who can't watch the video:

      Update: Mystery Google is dead. Mystery Google no longer works. Mystery Google was removed. So why?

      We can only guess why things start or stop, but I can tell you that the site wasn't owned by Google.... so Google bought it and if you want to find where Mystery Google went it's at http://www.mysteryseeker.com/
