Gotta Love Google

Or, not so much.

I'm a bit miffed at Google at the moment. For some reason, my blog had a page rank of 4/10, and now it is 0/10. What the yahoo?! I thought it was a fluke at first, but it's been like this for a couple weeks now. I don't think I have been blacklisted, because, I mean, why? I haven't done anything Google-illegal.

My pages are still indexed. So... Google, not liking you too much right now. With those stats, I might as well start over with a whole new blog and my own domain. I was thinking about it and the main thing keeping me from it is losing my Google pagerank that took me two friggin years to get. *growl*

The one good thing Google is good for right now is a laugh. I use their Analytics thingamabop to track information on my blog and website. It comes in quite handy. I can see where people are from, what websites referred them here, and how long they stayed. But none of this is quite so entertaining as looking up the keyword searches that bring some people here.

"i hate teeth" - yeah? Me too! Or at least I hate my teeth. Though I must admit they do come in handy.

"easy mac white powder" - I have a feeling that this person was looking for confirmation that the white powder in his/her easy mac was not anthrax. Sorry I can neither confirm nor deny such matters. I can confirm, however, that easy mac is gross and not fit for human consumption, and that Annie's Mac & Cheese is the good stuff.

"funny description of tiny bathroom" - Oookay.

"i am a popular cheerleader" - Not so much!

"i fumble my words when i speak" - I, umm, uhh, errrr... but, you know... it's umm... yeah.

"how to choose my song before singing" - Glad to be of service!

"because you was a part of me because you was a part of my sole" - *blink, blink*

"acupuncture bruise afterwards" - Been there, done that.

"guess earrings" - Is Guess even still around? That is oh, so 90's.

"i call my soul" - I hope she answered.

"i gave you my soul, find song" - Find it, Google, find it now!

"i love my birthmark but the mole may be cancerous" - My blog can neither confirm nor deny this. Please seek medical attention.

"is ripping off moles safe" -
My blog can neither confirm nor deny this. Please seek medical attention. And maybe some psychological help would be a good idea too.

"is it cool to have two earrings" - Why, yes. Yes it is. And you're in luck. My earrings come in pairs! Woo!

"meaning of a white elephant as a lawn ornament" - It means the British are coming. One if by land, two if by sea. Come on, people, watch your HGTV.

"soul is a four letter word" - Thank you, Mr. Obvious.

"crystal" - That's me!

My blog attracts some interesting attention. Eat that, Google, and shove it up your PageRank. (That sounds so nasty, yet makes so little sense.)

What interesting things have brought people to your site or blog?

The google thing might just need a couple days. Every once in a while Technorati says that I have no blogs linking to mine, and then it fixes itself a few days later.

I LOVE the searches! Those are so fun!

Hi, just came across your blog through BlogUpp.

Is it possible that Google may be preparing for an update soon?? Could be the reason why it has dropped. I did notice that your "Why Am I Singing" page has PR2.

Anyway, great blog and will be coming back to read more! Take care.

Bethany said...

That would be so fun to track!! Wish I could do the same :)

Are you using Firefox? Has the dropped number been since you updated the browser? If so, it may just be a display error with the plugin interacting with the new browser.

So this is one of the best posts ever. I read it outloud to Paul.

I laugh so hard at some of the searches people use to get to my blog.. I get tons of "jessica morris nude" searches leading to my blog. Nice eh?
