It is not possible to perceive a pattern for failed searches. For some searches, Google does not show results, while for others it displays only sponsored links on the first page. Search responses also vary according to the search term and device, as per the tests done by TechTudo. We contacted Google's advisory in Brazil, which confirmed the error. Some users have reported instability in the search results for a brief period. We are working to resolve the situation and the Search is already working normally. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, says the company's position.
