Odd Google Results
February 4, 2012 9 Comments
So, while I’m on the subject of Google…I don’t have intricate statistics on who comes to this blog from where — let alone why — but WordPress does tell me which Google searches lead the unsuspecting to Polentical.
The searches usually make sense. A search for “doug benson 12 guests of christmas” or “dlm 12 guests of christmas” or “12 guests of christmas doug” has led multiple googlers to my review of that episode of Doug Loves Movies. Others have found my references to Chesea Peretti’s appearance on that podcast by searching for “chelsea peretti hot.”
But then there are the odd ones. What to make of people searching for “really stoned”? (It appears to link to that Peretti podcast appearance.)
Did the person searching for “why does steven tyler look like a woman” expect the Google to give a definitive answer?
My favorite was the recent search for “jon hamm toupee” because it made me sit up straight. Is Hamm bald? Is this some sort of Hollywood conspiracy which has not passed my desk?
The answer once again came from Doug Loves Movies. I had totally forgotten about the really stoned Doug Benson mixing up the words “toupee” and “tattoo” while making jokes. Although future Googlers looking for “jon hamm bald” will now find this post, there is no — I repeat, no — evidence that Mr. Hamm is bald. He just likes hats.
