Fun with Google

Post by SpongeBuell » Tue Jun 29, 2004 11:48 pm

the google deal on the renaming thread reminded me of a litttle trick I read about on google. Type in one of the following and click "I'm feeling lucky"

miserable failure
weapons of mass destruction

*hopes most people are democrats, or at least have a sense of humor, and this forum doesn't go up in flames*

Any others?

I heard that something like "go to hell" takes you to microsoft.com, but they probably stopped that.

It does, it gets that off the "Where do you want to go today?" quote, second choice is hell.com or something.

I can't remember what it's called but the way they do these things is set up hundreds of site with the word's (e.g. Go to hell) then put links on those pages to the website they want to show up (e.g. Microsoft.com) then when google does it's search for new sites the bot sees that this website has a ton of links with that text so that text now gives your chosen website as the first result.

I enjoy killing the fun of things...

First of all let me say I chose the screen name of Ka-Bomber because Ka-Boom is my all time favorite Atari 2600 game. I am not some kind of fan of people who bomb stuff in real life.
Now that I've got that out of the way Please don't hate me for this one but type.....

the mother of all sand castles
and click on
I Feel Lucky on Google

Why do people think these are easter eggs? I'm Feeling Lucky just takes you to the first website that would be returned otherwise. Always.

A couple of unintended Google bombs: guess what comes up when you search for "here."
