I've got your "cuneiform meatspace" <a href="http://www.taipeitimes.com/news/2002/02/06/story/0000123094" target="_blank">right here</a>. Oh yeah.

Does anybody (that knows better) use anything other than Google?

I used to use goto.com and lycos, but ever since google, why bother with anything else? It's the best.

One of the rules from unblinking.com is that both words have to be at dictionary.com. You can tell if they are because when you search at google it underlines the two words at the top and links them to dictionary.com
Neither of your words are listed, sorry man

I honor of Valentine's day and in the spirit of cunilary...uh, I mean culinary masterminds everywhere, I hereby share with you the venerable (and quite surprising) googlewhack of:

"delicious poontang"


<img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" /> :eek:

Sorry ladies, it couldn't be helped. I wanted to challenge myself with a subject matter that is truly difficult to googlewhack with - internet porn. Seeing as how there are about 6 griz-gillion porn sites, I figured a successful whack (ok, that was bad) in this search space would be ultra-impressive, relative to something like

"cuneiform meatspace"

which is about as likely to be used in a sentence as, well, "furbelow recursion"

Dude, what the hell are you talking about? I got 351 hits for "delicious poontang". That would truly be an awesome googlewhack, one for the history books, but its not even close. Do you know what the definition of a googlewhack is???

Apparently not. Can you not use the quotation marks or something of that nature? I used the specific phrase and the "Google Search" (not the "I'm feeling lucky" button - which I suppose could be more appropriate for those attempting a porn googlewhack!

I just reread what I wrote, I hope I didn't sound too snippy.

Rules of the googlewhack
1."no quotes" - thats too easy

2. both words must be in the dictionary. Specifically, when you search google will put both words at the top of your search and hyperlink them to dictionary.com. If your words aren't hyperlinked they're not in the dictionary.

3. A successful whack is when you get just 1 hit. But the webpage that is listed can't be a page that just lists words. Thats considered a "googlesmack"

Except that lazer is spelled with an "s" and and laserbeam could be taken as two words and not one (but I'm too lazy to go verify that at Dictionary.com).

I had a few others before I noticed that Google was trying to correct my spelling - I was using the word bungalow for instance, but unwittingly leaving off the w. Mispelled words don't count, unless dictionary.com is more unabridged than I think.

DOH! You're right Moogs. Laserbeam slug yields 32 matches. However, in the googlewhacking specs, I think it says anything that is not corrected by Google (ie "did you mean &lt;someword&gt;?"). Not as a good googlewhack I suppose.

Now I dare you to use that in a sentence!



pfflam : I don't know what you're doing, or maybe I'm doing wrong, but I still get 651 links for argonautic. Remember, its how many links google finds to that word, not how many pages for the search.

I opened the Google search page put it in and pressed search. I used the link from the thread to get to the site.

The sea snake's bite could only be remedied with the use of a rare Javan anti-venom.

Ah ha! I figured it out. You went to:

<a href="http://www.google.com/mac" target="_blank">http://www.google.com/mac</a>

That is google for Mac only. That means all your searches will only pertain to the Macintosh. So its already limiting the search.

Since its not really searching the entire google database, I'm not sure if thats allowed <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

Moogs, that was a good one. Now if only I could figure out how to use furbelow recursion in a sentence. <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />

I thought I had one with dysphoric cornicopia. I got one <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=dysphoric+cornicopia" target="_blank"> hit</a>.

But with <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=dysphoric+cornucopia" target="_blank">dysphoric cornucopia</a> I got 9. Back to the drawing board.
