That's no lady, thats..........

As most of you know it is possible to tell how someone has turned up at your blog by checking the words they have googled for. Recently blog viewers have also turned up from having googled images - which is why the Sock took the X-rated pants offline because we don't want to attract the more sundry members of 'all and very sundry'. Sorry to all of you who wanted repeat viewings of the pants. Interestingly the Sock's most googled image is Matthew Wilson's "diehard" impersonation, closely followed by Brian Harvey's"ecstasy garden" for Chelsea 2008. The Sock isn't sure what this says about googling society but it probably isn't good.

On a more cheering note the bloggywog gets plenty of google hits for "i love chris beardshaw" or similar. The use of lowercase throughout would seem to denote a 'young person' or perhaps someone mentally challenged. The Sock automatically puts appropriate capitals in when typing even though it isn't necessary - call her old fashioned.

The nicest recent google has been for

My most consistent performers so far are 'how long is a week' and 'what's today's date'.

I don't think Googling is the best way to get these poor people the answer they need, especially if they're depending on my site for it.

I LOVE someone who is so polite that they say please to google.

I saw an article recently saying that non-techy people aren't really getting to grips with google - the percentage of people who type into Google the entire phrase "bbc.co.uk" hasn't changed at all since last year.
