Google Instant gives you suggestions as soon as you type a single letter. It's a bit distracting, and pretty annoying, and potentially extremely disruptive to search.
Mike Marshall and I were talking abou this at his Search Engine Academy this afternoon. After chatting for a while, we decided to start the Google Instant Alphabet project.
Here's how it works: Enter the letter A, and see what listing comes up first.
Here's my personalized alphabet (at least customized for geography):
- Best Buy
- Durham Bulls
- Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber? Really, Google?
Is yours similar? Identical? Do your own (it will take about 3 minutes), and post your Google Instant results to comments below. Together, we'll figure this thing out.
And maybe I'll become so famous that my name will eclipse Hotmail some day… ;)
