Have you seen that commercial for Bing.com? In the ad, a woman asks her friend a question and instead of giving a straight answer, the friend starts babbling all sorts of information that doesn't exactly pertain to the question she was asked. You know, like with Internet search engines, where you ask a simple question and instead of a simple answer you're given 865,423 search entries that have very little to do with what you wanted to know in the first place.
I'm sure you can relate.
I have this site meter enabled on my blog to help me keep track of how many blog hits I get each day. Among many features this site meter offers is a way to see when people reach my blog via a Google search.
One slow afternoon, I grabbed a pencil and wrote down the most recent search results because some of them are kind of amusing. And because I'm a good sharer I thought I'd share them with you. As far as I can tell, none of the people who found my blog via a Google search have returned, so obviously what I have to offer here at The Neurotic Housewife wasn't the answer to their burning queries.
Somehow that doesn't surprise me.
In case you ever wondered, if you Google these phrases, you'll eventually find yourself on my blog.
- pancake party
- bunion surgery
- how many pairs of running shorts
- why it's good to be a housewife
- eye necklace that Caroline from Housewife wears
- turkey chubby housewife
I've made pancakes before, but never for a party. I spoke with a woman in the Wal Mart lotion aisle about her botched bunion surgery, so that one I get. Running shorts? Yes. I've had some struggles finding decent running shorts.
I like being a housewife, so I'm sure I've sung it's merits before.
I don't watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey; well, I watched it once, when the one lady flipped over the table in the Italian restaurant and I do know who Caroline is. She was on the Great American Panel on Hannity once and she was really engaging and intelligent. The Real Housewives franchise of shows makes me really uncomfortable. It's a complete train wreck and while I enjoy some train wreck shows (hello Bachelorette), I find myself really embarrassed for most of the ladies on the shows. They're never portrayed in a nice light. Maybe they are actually being portrayed accurately? I don't know? Are people really THAT shallow, materialistic and MEAN?
I must admit that I'm somewhat baffled (and slightly offended!) by the turkey chubby housewife search result.
Methinks Google is a wee bit mean sometimes.
