First of all, merry christmas to all who read this. If you do not celebrate christmas, just have a nice day. That was not my reason to post this, but if I already post something today, I might just as well include it.
It is very fascinating what google keywords produce my homepage. Some of my favourite examples:
- If you google for my friend Björn Gernert, you’ll first find my post about his new homepage. His actual homepage is placed third, after a second article where he wrote a comment.
- I also have the first place if you google for the hot prototype alfa 8c competicione. This will give you a link to my review of SCAR, a racing game where you can drive this car.
- According to my logs, someone managed to find me googling for defiant deep space nine. I’m pretty certain he actually landed on my java applet, but I’m nowhere near the first three pages, so I have no clue how he found my page.
- I regularly get found by people who wonder about what is a ferroequinologist. Sorry, I have no idea, I just know it’s some kind of railroad fan (I am) and that I like the word. It sounds funny. Update: Tony Gies just sent me an e-mail, saying that it comes from latin “ferro” (iron) and “equus” (horse), which makes it’s meaning “one who studies iron horses”. Thank you very much!
The bad thing about this is that there are better sites with more information about every single of these queries. Why does Google still put this particular site on top? Doesn’t make sense, does it?
Update: None of these searches returns my site on 1 anymore, and many of them not even on the first page (I’ve been to lazy to check the other pages). I think that’s good, because I wouldn’t want to end on my homepage when searching for any of these.
