The Next Web noticed something odd while using Google Analytics to keep track of traffic.
There was a spam that hinted on a special access to something by copy-pasting the link to a Google website.
But in the site address the capital G seemed smaller than normal, being about the same size as a lowercase letter. It turned out that ɢoogle.com isn’t actually Google.com or google.com, but by using a special character (which is a Unicode 0262 symbol), it’s pretending to be.
TNW analytics team immediately identified the link as spam, and most of readers would probably do the same when they come across it. Even though ɢoogle.com seems to only be used for spam, other safe-looking links might lead to more harmful websites — and that’s why it’s important to stay aware of where you’re going at all times.
