    weird search results when searching for meaning.


    Hi,

    I want this problem fixed.
    When I search in google for meaning of things i get hindu,urdu,telugu,arabic... I dont want these translations.Why are the settings like this and how do I change it because the same shit is happening on my Iphone when I search for meaning of things.
    start up any browser and go to google then type a word that put meaning at the end does the list of languages come up for you? How do i change this?



    And does anyone know how to fix the search functionality on iphone?

    You could try typing "define things" instead of "things meaning"

    Thats not the point. The point is to remove these languages which come up when I search for a meaning of a word. Why would I want the meaning in hindu or urdu?

    If you want a definition of a word you type define. Thats how it works in Google. Otherwise you can use Bing...

    For me. I think Google uses the word meaning like translate if you see what I mean.

    Computers have no sense of humor, you got to use exactly what they want to hear. Check out Google help, there are exact search phrases to get results you want.
