The word clouds have become so widespread, people are asking for them to stop.
The word clouds, often referred to as word cloud, is a phenomenon that occurs when a user searches for a word on a website or social network, and a word cloud is created.
A word cloud means that the word or phrase was found by a bot that is not part of the official Googlebot botnet, meaning it wasn’t flagged as spam or botnet activity.
The phenomenon has caused a lot of confusion over the last several weeks as people are struggling to decipher what exactly is going on.
According to Google’s guidelines for how bots can be flagged as malware or spam, there is no indication that a bot is using the word cloud to trick users.
But in some cases, a word or a phrase is flagged as being spam by the botnet’s community, or a bot has a bad habit of using that word cloud.
That’s when people are left confused.
It all started when an unnamed person noticed a few of the top 10 most popular search terms on the website of the satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo.”
The top five most popular results were the word “Allah,” “Jesus,” “Switzerland,” and “Russia.”
A bot called Fuzzybot started using that combination of words in its search results, but a user called a journalist and asked for a clarification.
Google replied with a message that it “does not support or endorse the use of botnet word clouds,” according to a spokesperson.
A week later, the bot was removed from Google’s search results.
A few days later, it was replaced by the word ‘Googlebot.’
The word cloud began appearing on Twitter and Reddit as people questioned how it could have been that popular, according to an account on Reddit.
It also began appearing in a post on Google’s blog on Tuesday, where Google said it has been working with the community to identify the source of the word clouds.
“As we have said before, we are aware of the bot, and will work to remove the bot from the search results as soon as we have more information about its origin,” the spokesperson said.
The bot is not only a distraction for users searching for information, it is also an opportunity for hackers to gain access to Google services, Google’s statement said.
“If this bot was a malicious bot, it would be much harder to get in and take advantage of our services.
And we don’t want to give away our secrets, so we’re actively working to remove this bot from search results,” the company added.
It’s unclear whether the bot will be removed from search.
Google is asking the community on Reddit to help in the investigation.
Google’s FAQ also advises users to avoid using Googlebot’s search function in search results or in other areas of the site.
