What Google really thinks of Suffolk (it’s not good)

Google search has a bad impression of Suffolk’s major towns, calling most of them “a dump”, we can reveal.

Typing in a Suffolk town name followed by the word ‘is’ in the Google search bar generates an autocomplete list of suggestions for you to click.

And they are mostly unflattering or unintentionally funny, with only Haverhill appearing to be any good, with Google suggesting “Haverhill is happening”.

Which is ridiculous in itself.

Here is the new Google map of Suffolk. Please note only larger towns work – typing in smaller ones does not generate a “[town name] is” autocomplete suggestion.

Happily, typing in ‘Norwich is’ results in ‘Norwich is inbred’.

And on that bombshell, Google has redeemed itself in the eyes of the Suffolk Gazette.
