I’m a little obsessed with search engines, page rankings and the like. I like to see how people are getting to our site, and really, any site that I help create and setup. I like to see what’s called the “referrers” – the page that led them to the destination. Oftentimes, it’s a search. Google, MSN, Yahoo!, AltaVista, Dogpile, Ask – you name it, we’ve had someone come from there. And the search terms fascinate me. It’s amazing what people will search for. A couple popular ones that led to our site (color ME shocked) “Evanescence YouTube” and “Anna Nicole Smith being fucked in skyscraper” (that one’s pretty specific) and my personal favorite – “holster your weapon bauer” (check it! do it in Google – we’re the top link!).

Anywhoo – I want to create a “GoogleBomb” – a page that is dedicated to being the highest ranked for a particular search phrase. I want it so that when someone types in “President Bush” – a page with a girl’s crotch behind a podium shows up. (ok – not really – but I wanted to illustrate the POWER of a GoogleBomb!)

And how do we get to that state? Well – this is where you come in. You see those little links at the bottom of this post? “digg”, “reddit”, etc.? Well – become a member – and click those links – those will submit so that OTHER people can read this page, and they will create links to that page, which will in turn make Google and MSN and all the other Jamochs think that this page (whatever the bomb is) is SUPER IMPORTANT. Don’t do it for this one, I’ll tell you when!

Now, more importantly, if anyone has any suggestions – please put them in the comments – if not – no big deal, but stay tuned. After this weekend – my first (of many) GoogleBomb (I wonder if it’s been trademarked…?) will be unleashed – and I’m going to need YOUR help to do it!
