Why Google Fail to recognize asterisk symbol for search query [*] ?
Example: For search [(] https://www.google.co.in/#q=(
Google identifies it as symbol and shows a results of Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bracket
Also fails to show correct results for the queries connected to it like [* symbol name] [* symbol name on keyboard]
For every other search for 'symbol search' google identifies them perfectly.
Hats off to Big G which shows results for searches with symbol alone where as other SEs fail to identify none of them.
Where as we know *, an asterisk character, known as a wildcard, to match one or more words in a phrase. Whether the algo is confused with this?
This is not a common search query, no one will search for the symbol alone on google but the iam sure people will search like [* symbol name] wonder why G couldn't pull any data for asterisk symbol?
