The weirdness

Babble on.

I've found that the longer I blog, the more traffic I pull from search engines. And since I discovered this, I've gotten no small amusement from some of the searches that led people to Babbling Brooks.

Here's a sampling from my last 100 hits:

#2 on Google (UK): abthorpe church clock press release

#23 & #24 on Technorati: UAV

#58 on Yahoo: laws for separating from a common-law marriage in ontario

#123 on Google: monchy france

#28 on Google (Cdn francophone): +"michael byers" +conservatives

#25 on Yahoo: bmq blog

#35 on Google Blog Search: sterilization (the post in question references Carolyn Parrish)

#8 on Yahoo: subs in Canadian waters

#10 on Google: canada conservative minimum sentences violent crime

And following are the podium finishers - tied for third place:

#2 on Google: brazillion

#10 on MSN: woman and sexy under ware (the post in question makes reference to my grandmothers, believe it or not)

Runner up for weirdest result:

#31 on MSN: why do hamsters like small cages?

...and my personal favourite, the gold medal winner by a country mile...

#11 on Google (Cdn francophone): "he was masturbating" site:blogspot.com

Riveting content will return at an unspecified future date. You get what you pay for, etc.

Babble off.

Update: Heh. I just discovered that Babbling Brooks currently holds down both the #1 and #2 slots on a Google search for warren kinsella is a douchebag.

I kid you not.

And yes, I'll admit it: I get way more of a kick out of that than I should. Hopefully I can't get sued for simply enjoying the circumstance, but with Colonel Klapp, you never know.

Re: douchebag

Even Mr. Kinsella must acknowledge that truth is an entirely adequate defence to charges of libel.

The funny thing is that I've never actually called him that...in print.

I've mentioned his name, and I cribbed Gnotalex's (the blog quebecois) "addlepated douchebag" tag-line in an entirely separate post about Carolyn Parrish.

Google's search logarithms did the rest.

Somehow I show up by combining two phrases; "nazi era hockey teams" with "jerseys for sale"

I just received this Yahoo search:

One loves one's fellow-man so much more when one is bent on killing him
