Earlier this year, someone did a quick Google search on ‘India first PM’ and was taken aback to see current Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s photo coming up along with Jawaharlal Nehru’s description. And now, someone has found Salman Khan’s picture and description coming up on search after searching ‘worst Bollywood actor’. Not surprisingly, this resulted in a sudden flurry of activity on the Internet, with many on Twitter sharing screenshots of their search result and wondering what resulted in Google’s sudden aversion towards everyone’s favourite ‘Bhai’.

This is what many stumbled upon, after typing in ‘Worst Bollywood actor’ on Google.

Apparently, it reached a point that people only had to type in ‘Worst’ to get Salman Khan in the search results on Google.

While indianexpress.com has reached out to Google, one of the plausible explanations is how meta tags determine what Google’s search shows. By the nature of it, Google picks up search keywords and shows articles and photos that have been uploaded with the said keyword as a tag. While that is there, here is why fans of the actor must not lose hope — Typing in ‘Real king of Bollywood’ will also show Salman Khan in the search results.
