The Watchtower of Destruction: The Ferrett's Journal - Nigritude Ultramarine
[Recent Entries][Archive][Friends][User Info]
It's not that I feel strongly about these words, mind you. It's that I don't want to get left out when Google comes by.
And I'll be quite curious to see the results, mind you. Now we have a way to read the mind of Google....
Current Mood: curious
I wonder if the Google folks approve, 'cause they could very easily shut this down any time they wanted.
Not really. I suspect programming in exclusionary terms would require a HUGE framework, and a hue and cry. Once you start excluding some words, then the architecture is there to deny entire swathes of the web.
They will adjust their algorithms, though. They always do.
Over 91,000 hits when one searches on it. And 69 for "negritude ultramarine" (which Google itself suggested as a "did you mean...").
-who still thinks that Nigritude Ultramarine sounds like a Sailor Moon spinoff...
"Results 1 - 10 of about 91,300 for Nigritude Ultramarine"
Never thought I'd see that.
Somebody has to use that for the name of their band.
Why? Nobody would be able to Google them up! *g*
It's quite sad what "experts" will devote time and, a hem, research to. Nigritude Ultramarine? A cure for cancer, anyone? ;)
This is actually quite interesting, as much as I hate to admit it. Yeah, I couldn't help myself - I googled it like everyone else :p
Why is that sad? The difference between being on Page 1 of a Google search for a popular term and Page 4 can mean thousands of dollars in sales. Google did a big reindexing in November that changed a lot of rankings, and people went out of business.
When something can bankrupt someone, studying it ain't foolish.
What I actually meant but (unsurprisingly, really) was unable to summarise is that it intrigues me that this thing has warranted so much interest, so quickly. Obviously, I can understand it being important to a great deal of people, as you so quickly pointed out. As a hit-and-miss web designer, I'm as well aware of the importance of search indexing as the next hand coder. Metatags are near important as the content of the page itself, this I know. Sad was perhaps a poor choice of words :)
Very interesting stuff... :)

120,000...wow, it increases pretty quickly
Crazy stuff. I still think google whacking is more fun, though. You choose two words and enter them into the google search engine. You can't put the + or put them in quotes.
Then, you hit "search" and you try to get only one result.
The site is http://www.googlewhacking.com/
That's what I thought of.

I was just searching for a meaning of "Negrocity" that someone sent me in an email and came across this discussion. So as the good samaritan that I am, here's a count update:
