Ahhh, proves what everyone suspected all along and it only took Google to tell us.

You can substitute any subject (or most other words) for math here, and you will end up with the same result. Arrangement of the words, I suppose. But still, quite strange that over 25 billion pages do not have even one instance of this combination, considering that it is commonplace!

Ooops! When I say commonplace, I mean in thought at least...

There are a few hits for ["how math can be used in real life"]

Same with the UK spelling: "how maths can be used in real life"

There is obviously a hole in the market here! Anyone who wants to hit number one on Google needs to make a site explaining why math(s) is useful in real life.

Haha! That's a good one.

Next month this page will be number on in Google for that phrase.

yeah this post will be indexed, but the equation here is

"25 billion pages " = "6.1 billion population" of which there are "1.2 billion users" worldwide..

this is cool
I want to use math in real life , with no Google results
google.ro/search?hl=en&cli ...

And since Google doesn`t like subjects in search queries and prefer orders
and imperative forms how to use math in real life
google.ro/search?hl=en&cli ...

There are also no Google results (yet) for:
"How to make yourself enjoy eating vegetables"
"why do cars have windows?"
or even
"is Google more important than Yahoo?"

I guess this means the internet is still incomplete.

There aren't many pages with the questioning form of statements, since someone, say, writing a page about whether Google is more important that Yahoo, would probably write their idea, ie 'Google is more important than Yahoo".

There is a result there now from the person who submitted the link.

James: you are right, of course, that there are fewer pages with questions than with "answers".

But in this case, changing the form around still yields no results for:

"make yourself enjoy eating vegetables"
"cars have windows because"
or even
"Google is more important than Yahoo because"

I'm surprised about that last one. It really shows that most of the content of the internet is not written yet.

Folks, check the results again ;)
I love my SEO techniques, hehe.
