If I change to a FL location, I still get nothing.

Can you post a url and image?
edit on 16-8-2012 by loam because: (no reason given)

here are the links for specific items and each lists 20+ stores "available"

herbalife
www.google.com... 0...1ac.fCINidtmZg8

centrum silver
www.google.com... fCINidtmZg8&oq=centrum+silver

vitamin b12 complex
www.google.com... NidtmZg8&oq=b12+complex

one a day
www.google.com... 1ac.fCINidtmZg8&oq=one+a+day+vitamins

9mm ammunition
www.google.com... fCINidtmZg8&oq=9mm+ammunition

u2u me if you want/can instruct me on taking an image, i've never gotten that module to work.
happy to help but don't have software to "capture" an image on this machine.
[the preview looks like the links might be too big to copy correctly, any suggestions ??]

I just checked and my ip actually comes up as private.

On a stranger note, here at work we have about 8 computers networked to a server, and I did the same search on another terminal and got 0 results, but my terminal 20 feet away still gets 30,000

Well considering how many merchants out there are getting screwed over, I do find it puzzling there aren't pages upon pages of complaints/questions. They must be drinking their fluoride water like good people... or posts are getting deleted!


I completely agree and am betting on the latter, which makes me even more motivated to understand why they have done this and why they potentially seem to be keeping noise about it secret.

really ??
just to be sure they copied correctly, i clicked the first two and they went where they came from ... how weird is that ??
are you also in CA as others were saying ??

i agree this is beyond strange.
i haven't seen the "no results" page for any item searched - i'm glad but i do wonder why and what's up ?

has anyone been able to identify the section of Obamacare that supposedly spurred this maneuver ??

Hardly....and what? Miss out on the opportunity to store and analyze a lifetime of my surfing behavior on the interwebtubes?


I smell government regulators back-dooring an agenda otherwise not achievable through public political means.

Now that should frighten everyone.

I'm on the East Coast, and none of the links worked for me.

This subject still completely baffles me. Nothing about it makes sense, and Google's silence, including the absence of complaints about this, also makes it a really perplexing item.

that is strange indeed and i totally agree with perplexing.
as one who consumes vitamins and supplements regularly, this concerns me in more ways than one.

Yeah, totally strange! Be sure and check it in a couple days to make sure TPTB haven't picked up on this, and added your private IP to their "you can't get there from here" unfolding saga! Report back at once if things change from that terminal!!!

hmmmm, that has me wondering if this is more ISP provider specific rather regional.
i'm also on the East Coast (well, west coast of FL) and not having any difficulties with it.
we're supposed to have a dynamic IP so it's always changing, maybe that makes a difference ??

My friends, I have a permanent solution to the problem of Google deciding to be evil and censor their shopping results at the whim of big pharma. The solution to overcoming this problem is simply this:

www.bing.com...

If it's good enough for Spiderman, it's good enough for me.

In the more than 10 years I've had a computer at home, I've refused to use Google.

Makes me think that people should be using the "darknet", but I'm afraid to try it. I don't trust the gov't, and I guess a lot of child porno sites hang out there. "All the more reason to arrest you, My Pretty."

I read the thread, it isn't a big deal. I can go to amazon and buy all the vitamins I want. There are a ton of other search engines you can use. Why do you care so much?

I typed in "vitamin c with bioflavonoids" and got a line
that nothing matched my inquiry followed by three
URL's that matched my inquiry.
...
The same thing happened with
"Your search - b complex supplement - did not match any shopping results."
but followed by URLs for three relevant websites.

Today it's Google. Tomorrow it may be Amazon.

With respect, why don't you care?

Honestly who cares....

Why use google shopping anyhow?
You want your purchases to be even MORE tracked than they already are?

I shop for vitamins online, never ever used google shopping.

The 3 relevant links were paid ads. A handful of company's are cleaning up with this, but I wonder how long until the ads vanish too.
