You can crack Google search by searching for "compare the market"

 

 

Go to Google and search for the keyword [ compare the market ] to the desktop or mobile version and you will see that Google no longer works. It is rare to see Google not being able to provide the answer to your query, but here is a case where Google simply can not process the answer for you.

As you can see above, Google responds with a message that reads:

Server error

We're sorry, but it appears that an internal server error has occurred while processing your request. Our engineers have been informed and are working to solve the problem.

Please try again later.

Google is aware of the problem since about 3:30 pm EDT, but has not solved the problem yet. It's been more than 6 hours that Google can not return results for a simple enough query.

Google's Danny Sullivan said on Twitter "This is not the case. It's a server error – as we say. Server errors sometimes occur. We investigate. "

This is not the case. This is a server error – as it says. Server errors sometimes occur. We investigate.

It will not be a ranking problem for you or anything like that. It's probably also something that strikes other queries that simply have not been noticed. We hope to solve it soon.

So, I hope this will be solved soon, but it's very unusual to see an example where Google returns this error and error for such a long time.

PS: Google solved the problem around 3 am (EDT) Friday, we sent an email to Google to get a statement.
