Mystery search is a hysterical alternative to Google search, which pretty much looks and works the same way as Google and lands you up on a Google page, but not for something that you searched.

Rather, the search engine will give you results for something that the last person before you using the service typed in and hit enter.

The service works in a funny way as it will never give you results for what you’ll search. So, expect the unexpected, and also be warned that this site shouldn’t be used in your office or near children.

While this website isn’t meant to be used as a proper search engine, especially if you’re trying to search something and be productive with your time.

On the contrary, this can be used to pass your time and have a few laughs looking at what people before you have been searching and pass judgements too, and while this is very less likely, you might even learn something you weren’t aware of, maybe.

We used the Mystery search and Ps. We were feeling lucky.

We were served up with some quite hilarious results while searching for Guiding Tech on the Mystery search as it led us to a theory based on Sherlock Holmes and another was a query for a certain restaurant in Bengaluru.

Google itself has kind of funny searches in its automated search suggestions like ‘how to raise your IQ by eating gifted children’, ‘what’s a boyfriend and where can I download one’, but the not so popular Mystery search is sure to give you a few laughs.

Mystery Search is the alternative search engine you never knew you needed.

IF you think that plain old Google searches aren’t exciting – or unpredictable – enough, then you’ll be pleased to know that there’s an alternative way to use Google’s search engine.

Mystery Search is the hilarious alternate search engine you never knew you needed.

Although the little known site uses the same Google search bar as you’re used to, mystery searches come with a twist which means you rarely get the results you were expecting.

That’s because the engine doesn’t show the results for what you just typed in, instead it shows the results for the previous person’s search – meaning you have no idea what you’re going to get.

Because it uses the last person’s input, you could be faced with literally anything when you hit that search button, so be warned that the site is not suitable for children and may not be safe for work.

Whilst the Mystery Search gimmick makes it completely useless for actually looking up anything specific, it can lead to some hilarious and surreal results – and you may even end up learning something.

When searching for “the Sun online”, the site came up with some completely nonsensical searches, as well as the results for some rap lyrics, twerking celebrities and the question: “who actually likes Denmark?”
