hey, got a question for you: I want to search in google for "1%", in
words: one percent.
but whenever I put in the sign for percent google caculates this or
calculates in modulo.
can anyone please help me how to get results for "1%"?

That's pretty messed up SERPs. Doesn't look to me like the search
engine does very well with these type of formulated things either way
you write the search criteria; or maybe it is doing exactly what it is
suppose to be doing. Noone really knows.

Figuring out why search engines are messed up; it is one of those
things that I just write off as never to be fully determined.

I long stopped wasting my mental resources trying to figure out why
search engines mess up. Traditionally, their tendencies are to fix one
malfunction perfectly well enough to incite a slew others existing but
yet dormant glitches.

crafting unique content is never a waste of time

Symbols are a tough nut because of the way they are treated. I suggest you
search UseNet archives in, e.g. Google Groups. It's a commonly-asked
question. In any case, here is the 'cheat sheet' for Google:

You might find an answer to your question there.

Hope it helps,
