That was no fun ;). Interesting though, that "u tube" is there. Don't tell me so many people mistype our favourite video sharing website!

That's for Google.com,not for google in other language.
-------------------------------------------
In google.cn,the riddle shows like this:

alexa
baidu(The biggest rival to google)
cctv(China Central TV)
dj
edvard monch
flash
google earth
hao123(the world's biggest website index,you can check it in alexa)
ip查询服务(ip searth service)
java
kugoo(A p2p mp3 player)
linux
mp3
nba
office(means microsoft office)
pplive(a p2p video player)
qq(an instant messager with the most users on the earth)
realplayer
sina(like yahoo,but not very popular now,except its blog service)
taobao(the eBay in China)
ut(another instant messager client)
vagaa(a download software based on emule)
winrar
xiao77(a porn forum,surprise!)
yahoo
zol(the biggest IT news website in China)
-----------------------------------------------------------------
on google.cn, now you can see keywords suggested by google instantly.well, I think the words I list make no sense to Chinese,because most people in China seldom search with English keywords.

Also interesting: when you search google for all of those terms at once (the ones consisting of multiple words written with ""), you end up with exactly one search result: adult-d*t*ng-s*x-sites.com/

:D

Perhaps the real anwer to this riddle is: Google secretly suggests adult s*x d*t*ng? ;)

Ionut, time for a tip perhaps?

Each word is related to the first results of a search query. The queries are distinct and use exactly 5 characters.
