Search engine terms this week September 22, 2007

Posted by dorigo in games, humor, internet, language, personal.

I think I have not reported for a while on the funniest, the strangest, most revealing, or just dumb combinations of words people used in search engines to get the coveted price of accessing this site. Here is a pout-pourri of the latest ones:

  • “big plastic duck on the road”: do I have any idea of why this guy was looking for that ? Nope. Do I have a vague idea of how could he end up in my site ? Well, I wrote of plastic ducks once, but they were small.
  • “coglione translation”: funny how one writes a post, and then it becomes a reference forever (I get hits from that search every week). Yes, I did discuss the word, when it was uttered by our Prime Minster (luckily he no longer holds that charge).
  • “men are assholes”: Agreed. But I think the person (I presume a woman) was looking for some confirmation, to which I once provided my contribution here (although I do not any more stand by the emotive tirade I pulled in that post).
  • “I hate sexist men”: good, and I do not blame you for that. Only, stay away from here then. I have been marked as one, and there’s no turning back.
  • “lisa randall + private life”: Hmmm. Maybe “= mind your own business” ?
  • “green and yellow frogs”: Oh, funny. I did write about green frogs. It was a post discussing how Paris Sphicas explained some details of the inner workings of the CMS trigger system at a meeting.
  • “blowjob”: Darn. I deny having ever used that word here. No, I’m serious. I swear!… Hmmm. Ok. Here and here. But I have excuses for both instances. Honest!

LOL. These terms indicate an entertaining blog! All I can manage (besides scientific terms) are search terms for parrot smuggling.

Now you will also get all those who can’t spell pot-pourri properly.

Hi Kea,

yes, a colorful blog. Sometimes my penchant (spelling correct, estraven?) for trivialities emerges despite my attempts at hiding it…

Hi Estraven,

thank you for noting the mistake. Indeed, what you say is true. I get a few hits almost every day also from people who look for a “trachetomy” (tracheostomy is the correct wording) after I posted on that once.

BTW, I will get hits for pot-pourri too now, from your comment!

Thanks for posting that. I have an old site (AdventureLiving.com) that I haven’t updated since 1998. It still has relevant information so it still gets about 100 visitors per day. However, I pretty much ignore it (though I reply to any emails). After seeing this post here I thought I’d see what sort of keywords people are using to find that site. Well, most were the typical ones or others that made sense. However, a lot of them were along the lines of “What is the point?” That reminded me of some pages I had put there when I was much younger and I went back and reread them. Not sure I agree totally with what I had written back then, but still good to remember what I was thinking at the time. So, thanks for the memories.

You’re welcome Carl. Indeed, one’s frequent blogging tends to amass too much information which one rapidly becomes oblivious of. Having leads to the material is a good thing.

(I have just discovered this website. ) As to search terms, here are some from my place:
Why Plato killed Socrates?
Aristoteles fishing

Earth Hangs On What
Plato kill himself

And from a friend’s place:
Why don’t Greek statues have any arms?
Why don’t Greek statues have any eyes?
Naked women in hell
