This is an interesting little game, but I suspect it will have more to do with what Google has recorded about each user in the past than any actual Google supremacy.

Here’s the premise:

“you will attempt to find 5 statements, which if you were to type into Google (preferably, but we’ll take the other country specific ones if need be), you’ll find that you are returned with your blog as the number one hit. “

This is actually a lot harder than it looks. I am usually#2, rather than number 1, for a lot of terms. An amazing amount of things are indexed as entomology by google, and are actually posts about etymology.

Ok, going from what I know of what sends people here:

  • Bug_girl
  • “Dirty Girl” + Entomology
  • Entomology Blog (this is pretty cool, actually!)
  • WTF Entomology (I am very amused by this)

And….Drumroll…I managed to get #1 on this search:

  • malaria Rachel Carson entomology

I am very excited about this, because I beat out a couple of the folks that have been trashing Carson. Huzzah!

  1. Heh, that was easy! I simply typed in “insect psychologist”. (It’s a title that an ed-psych gave me.)


  2. #1 hits:

    Gossamer Tapestry
    swamp metalmark restoration

    My blog also was the #2 hit for gay scientist, which I thought was pretty cool.

  3. Try “osageorange cyclops” and see what you get, lol… :)
