Looking For Google Webmaster Help? Google Sends You To Orkut Help

This morning, during my morning research phase for topics for this site, I had to switch up how I find my topics a bit due to the poor coverage with my Verizon MiFi. So I searched for [google webmaster help] and clicked on the link to the "Webmaster Help Forum" within the sitelinks. To my surprise, it took me to the Orkut Help Forums instead of the Google Webmaster Help forums.

Here is a picture:

The click through URL is: http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/orkut%3Fhl%3Den&sa=X&ei=64gPTIXtJYz8NeGgrPIM&ved=0CB4QqwMoAjAA&usg=AFQjCNFgT6RZnGQezKinAAbFVILGHeuqLA

As you can see, that is 100% wrong and a bit funny for the search I have done. I mean, I wonder how many people run into this issue and then ask Webmaster related questions at the Orkut forum or go, "What is Orkut?" Do most people know Google owns Orkut, a popular social networking site in South America?

Anyway, I blog this for mostly one reason - hoping Google fixes it soon.
