People Are Too Civil On The Internet



So yesterday (and today too, ha!) I tried to make a grab at the google search traffic that I assumed the latest xkcd blag post would generate. Randall Munroe posted another list of google search phrases that (at the time of posting) resulted in 0 results.

Phrases like:

  • Aww, a baby hooker!
  • his penis shattered my world
  • driver-side bidet
  • Sarah, plain and tall and a cyborg

Yesterday's post "It Turned Out Her Bottom Half Was A Robot" was titled after one of those "zero result" phrases. And included one other phrase – "ate a violin". People searching for robot-butted girls where few, generating about 20 hits to my post. But "ate a violin" brought in almost 200 people.

I feel like I'm abusing my ability to have a post indexed in less than 10 minutes by google. My little horse must think it gay.

    Oh, and today, as of posting this – I've been visited by 30 violin eaters.
