Cottage hire Birmingham: another example of Google’s UK results going bad

August 18, 2009 One Comment

See the update of this post with another example here:

Search Google for 'cottage hire birmingham' and you think it would work out that, as I'm in the UK, I want Birmingham in the Midlands, and not, say, Birmingham Alabama.

However, it seems to have gone nuts, and for the first result - a UK-based directory of Midlands villas, it's decided to show me a map of Bethlehem Pennsylvania next to it. It's not clear what this has to do with 'cottage hire birmingham'.
