#75 Most searched for words on Google

In Social Networking on February 16, 2011 at 10:50 am

While checking my blog stats, I noticed that one of the search engine terms someone had use to arrive on my site was ‘woman suspended in air while getting toe sucked’. I can only imagine that was one bitterly disappointed Googler.

But it made me wonder what other search terms people had used to find me, and whether I might not get a bit more serious about this SEO lark. I don’t know how you got here, (apologies if a blog about being a South London cash-strapped middle class freelancer wasn’t what you had in mind, though there’s probably a niche fetish group for everything); here’s the list of random, bizarre, and at times faintly disturbing things some of the visitors to this blog have been looking for:

micro mini elephant

forehead bold

beat my meat with your feet

rear drive pedalo

where does Jarvis Cocker hang out in Paris

felting old jumpers (great name for a band?)

Heygate estate postcode

become a deathmachine

rubber band chair

smiley potato merchant Perth

grapescissors

cats and watermelons

gay bar Ealing

knuckle duster potato

Suzi Feay fetish (and I thought her blog was about books!)

traffic light pie at school

OK, four of the above  have actually been mentioned in the past, but I  don’t imagine many SEO consultants are recommending their clients start repeating the phrases ‘rubber band chair’, grape scissors’, ‘cats and watermelons’ or ‘traffic light pie’ in their posts.

I tried to find out what the most searched for words on Google are, but no one could offer a definitive answer. Other than the obvious ‘sex’, ‘porn’, ‘free’, and ‘restaurant’, I suspect the phrase ‘most searched for words on Google’ is probably quite high up there – ‘Googled’ is now one of the most common words in the English language, apparently, according to one online source I can’t be arsed to verify. So I’ll probably stick that on as a headline. See what happens.
