What does Google Predict when You Search? No, Nigeria is Not a Geographical Expression!

Nigeria is

When you type a search into Google, it tries to predict what you might be searching for. Previously, I had assumed that the predictions were based on the most frequent searches made. What I really want to know is this, do people actually think Nigeria is a geographical expression? I made a video of other searches on Nigeria and Nigerians and they are not quite complementary. So my question is this, how are the predictions made?

I’d also like to know some of the hilarious ones you have seen. If you are not Nigerian, what does Google say about your country and its people? You can Check out ‘English people are’ to start with 🙂

You can see more hilarious (I think) results on Sugabelly’s blog.

  1. lol, I presume its due to the fact that Lord Lugards wife coined Ngeria from Niger-Area hence we are just a bunch of people (very different I may add) merged together for the purpose of better administration by colonial masters. Nigeria should therefore change its name to loose the tag of being a 'geographical expression' into something like Black Mans paradise, United States of African Tribes (USAT)….. etc etc.
