New message feature when not able to find matches for Google Search

Quote:
Weíve probably all gone through this before: you do a search for something, and the results just donít seem to be related to what you were looking for.

Itís definitely not what we want to see happen, and we try to prevent it in a number of ways. For example, if you spell something wrong, we have systems to detect those misspellings and provide proper spelling predictions, so you can find web pages and information that match the words you were really searching for. We also continue to make improvements to our underlying language understanding systems in Search, so even if you donít phrase something exactly as itís written online, we can still understand the words and concepts in a way that makes sure you can find a good match.

But these systems donít always work perfectly, and sometimes, there just isnít information available on the web that matches what you typed in.



Starting today in the U.S., weíre rolling out a new message that lets you know when Google hasnít been able to find anything that matches your search particularly well. While you can still go through the results to see for yourself if theyíre helpful, the message is a signal that we probably havenít found what youíre looking for. When possible, the feature will also provide some alternative searches as well as tips on how you could reformulate your query to better find the information you seek.

This feature shouldnít show up too often-- after all, thereís usually something helpful we can find! But when it does, we hope it helps save you some time and gets you to the information you wanted more quickly. If it turns out that what you were hoping to find just isnít on the web at all, you can always check back later to see if anyone has created a new article or posted new information that youíll find helpful. And in the meantime, thereís always more to explore.
