Hmmm. Every time I search for something using the search string 
"dlang", Google asks me did I mean "golang". Are Google getting 
worried about the success of D?

Yeah, that doesn't happen for me. I notice that you also use "dlang" in place of "d" in search results. "dlang" seems to get better results on average for me.

This is unfortunate though: https://github.com/dlang It shows up as the 3rd result on my google search for "dlang".
