Googling and finding this blog first on the list.

Coming up first for this search is a funny traffic builder for this blog. [ADDED: Whoops, this one isn't first, just the top of a page — it's 41st.]

And this and this one surprise me. [ADDED: Actually, only the second one is first. Top of the page error again. Sorry.]

Here's a subject I know nothing about.

This brings people here every day.

And I'm #1 for "popcorn pajama pants," which is a funny thing to be looking for.

I'm #1 for "student protest photos," interestingly.

Strangely, I'm #1 for "this is not a goddess."

Ann, These peeks into search engine follies are always a lot of fun. I got quite a few smiles from your results. At f/k/a, I've been memorializing my own on our Inadvertant Searchee pages.

One quibble: you're first three listings don't yield #1 results. "Breast size" is #41; the first Sheehan query result is #11, and I can't find Althouse in the top 60 of the second Sheehan inquiry. I think your Research Assistant must have had too much popcorn for lunch.

best wishes,

I'm #1 for "Bombay Flooding"

But I'm #12 for "Real Estate Bubble"

Trust me - I'm an expert on neither.

But I get about 50 hits a day from my pictures of this guy:

Hilarious... I guess it's important to enjoy traffic anyway you can get it. You've got an envious PR7 which helps.

I don't get the same search results, because I'm in Canada. We must have different google databases.

I'm the only link on MSN Search for
"nude mousekeeters"! Yippee!

Hey Ron,

Is that a MSN Whack.. as compared to a googlewhack? That's quite the honor.

Paul said...

Ann. And you wanted to be a law professor. This place is a magnet.

Ron said...

Monty: Vas is MSN Whack? and do I want it?

Obi-Wan said...

I'm quite proud of the fact that, if one googles the phrase "you do not want to be odor," I come up #2.

Of two total hits.

When you do a search for two words that are in the dictionary but only produce one search result on google.

Examples:
ambidextrous scallywags
fetishized armadillo
inculcating skullduggery

Of course now that the googlewhack website has posted these everybody's going to put them on a website :)

I learned about this when I was at the airport, and was trying to buy an inspirational book on google/SEO. I picked up the book googlewhack thinking that I was going to have a good read about search engine positioning.

Instead it was a book about how a guy chases googlewhack websites around the globe to research his book.

Thus MSNWhack because yours is the only search result.

It's really a cool thing!!

Monty: Well, if I find the writer of that book, maybe I can be an addendum...

feels like I got some Slashdot Campaign Medal or something!
