Google search scares Steam users to put middle finger at Epic game store

Recently, when some players searched the Steam Game Store through Google, they suddenly found that the home page results contained a middle finger to the rival Epic Game Store. PCGamesN reports that It appears Google is having a lot of trouble presenting search results to users. Instead of providing users with the right information about the Steam Game Store landing page, it’s just exposed to the F-k Epic Game Store.

For now, it appears that the question command appears during a search for the Steam Store. If you search only for the single keyword “Steam”, the results page of Google Search is also quite normal.

After a search, we found that this “search engine optimization” (SEO) surprise, derived from user Rommel’s evaluation of the “Subway: Departed” game , which added the text “F-k Epic Game Store” and the asCII code vertical middle finger evaluation.

Previously, Metro: Departing had logged on to the Steam platform with a large number of older players a year later, as Epic and Steam competed for the game’s dominance, which was primarily attractive because the former claimed a lower platform-sharing ratio.

Obviously, a lot of players who don’t want to “jump left and right” have paid a huge price for it. So it’s not uncommon for Rommel-like reviews to be made after Steam went on the shelves.
