Google blames iTunes-related search results on technical problems
Strange search results when looking for iOS apps are connected to technical problems, says Google. AppsFire co-founder Ouriel Ohayon has pointed out that when handling searches for apps, Google's servers have recently been burying App Store links, potentially up to several pages deep. "We've been having some issues fetching pages from the iTunes web servers, and as a result some people may have had problems finding iTunes apps in search easily," Google <a href="http://www.theverge.com/2013/4/2/4176530/google-says-missing-itunes-store-links-in-search-results-due-to">explains</a> in an official response. "We're working with the team there [Apple] to ensure search users can find what they're looking for."<br /><br />Google occasionally makes changes to the way search results are generated to make them more relevant. The company can run into problems though; in March the company <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282507==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/20/social.news.site.does.not.appear.in.google.search/" rel='nofollow'>inadvertently blocked all Digg.com results</a> when trying to deal with a single link identified as "spammy." The mistake was quickly reversed.
