Google Repairs Glitch That Kept Some IE Users On The First Page Of Results

Yesterday, Andy Beal first reported on Marketing Pilgrim (btw, kudos on the title of your blog Andy) with more from RustyBrick on SER, that many Internet Explorer users were having difficulty accessing Google results pages (beyond the first page of results) due to a coding glitch in a promo for Google Desktop at the bottom of a web results page. Today, Elinor Mills reports that the problem has been solved.

From the article:

Google said in an e-mail statement: “Earlier today we learned of a technical glitch in a Google Desktop product promotion that may have affected a small percentage of users’ ability to click through to subsequent pages of search results. We worked quickly to fix the issue, which has now been resolved.”

Btw, when I headed to IE yesterday to check out the problem for myself, I was fortunate not to run into the glitch. I wonder why?
