Let me Google that for you

Now I've seen everything: there's a website that will do a Google search for you by showing you how to use Google. Huh? The creators say they created it as a way to help the search-engine challenged Internet users that ask you questions they could find the answers to on Google. Quote on their website: "This is for all those people that find it more convenient to bother you with their question rather than google it for themselves."

Screenshot of their website:
Here's how it works:

1. Visit the site
2. Enter your search criteria in the box and press the Google Search button
3. It will create a link for you that you can copy and send to that search-engine challenged person you know. Example:
4. When they click the link they'll see an animated cursor showing them how to submit a Google search and then actually runs the search on Google redirecting them to Google's website for results.

So, the paranoid side of me wonders if these guys are going to track the searches and then sell the data to advertisers. Also, they have Google's graphic/logo on their page...wonder how long until Google tells them to remove it. Then again, why would they? They are generating search traffic for them. ;-)

Ha, here's some irony: the site is indexed on

Check it out for yourself: or
