Surprising Google Search ‘card’ error


It’s strange to see Google’s card results being so out of date.

As I mentioned on Twitter the other day, here’s an example of a search on the term ‘austrade ceo’. The current Austrade CEO Bruce Gosper has been at the helm since February 2013. And yet, Google shows this ‘card’ for Peter Grey (who retired in November 2012).

What’s even stranger though is that all the top results on the search term are correct – it’s only this card that is wrong.

It’s not as though it’s a small site, or a little known executive – this is the CEO of a major Australian Government site. Google, sometimes you surprise me.

(Disclaimer: Austrade is a client of mine.)
