    We can never use do with interested, only with the verb interest.

    Are you interested in grammar?
    Does grammar interest you?

    A native speaker would never make that mistake from the age of about three or four.
    Perhaps most of the "English" on the web these days is written by non-native users of the language. (When I do a search for this phrase, your question above comes up as number 2. Every piece of poor English written on this forum is subject to Google's searching. If I write "Interested do are you?" here (which I have), that phrase will probably eventually show up on Google. It proves nothing.


    You cannot learn what is proper English by doing a web search unless you search for obviously native or official websites.
