Fun with Google

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at October 12, 2004 6:47 PM

This site is the 322nd hit on Google for "travis" and the 655th hit for "hime". My father's site is the 7th hit in the same search, and an Amazon ad for Scared Money is one of the sponsored links.

It is the 31st hit for "arcane" and the 49th for "gazebo". The most common referrals are search requests for information on gazebos.

It is the 2nd hit for "customer service crush" in an exact phrase search, the 2nd hit for "caffeine inflation" as separate words, and the 7th hit for the phrase "death burger".

Yes, I am bored.


And I am an underappreciated writer always looking for reassurance. So your boredom redounded to my benefit. I mean, like, I'm doing that well on Google searches? Who knew? Now, don't you need to be checking on the temperature level in the fridge or something?

I can glance at the thermometry from here, except that it's unplugged because it interferes with the measurements. So I'm just waiting on Rabi oscillations measured at the ridiculously slow speed of two bits per millisecond. Any faster and we get quasiparticle heating.

Our experiment needs surprisingly little attention sometimes (but don't tell my advisor).

....Did you actually count out those stats?

If you are asking whether I really clicked through slightly over a hundred pages of Google results looking for my site, the answer is... yes. Did I mention I was bored?

The result number is part of the URL of each link that comes up, so no actual counting was necessary; however, there was a lot of scrolling past Mononoke Hime fan sites.

I think I'm still first for Mason Porter (my GT site, anyway). I used to be 4th for Porno Master (without my real name) and one of my subpages used to be third for "sarcastic words of wisdom." I was so proud of the latter one...
