What is twerking? What is love? What the…?
I was surfing the web while eating breakfast the other morning (Vegemite on toast – very Aussie) when I happened to stumble across Google Trends/Top Charts.
I went to a page called What did the World Search for in 2013? (Australia). I then looked at the title What Is? The #1 search term recorded by Google for 2013 was What is twerking? The #2 search term was What is love?
I had a bit of a giggle and was not sure what to make of it. I’ve asked the universe (not Google) a few times in my life what is love? but I’ve never asked it what is twerking?
So I joined in the party and Googled What is the difference between twerking and love? To my absolute amazement there were no answers – what’s the world coming to?
In America the top search terms were #1 What is Twerking and #2 What is Ricin (I’m hoping this is just a Breaking Bad influence and not a sinister trend).
In the UK the top search terms were #1 What is Twerking and #2 What is my IP
In Canada the top search terms were #1 What is Twerking and #2 What is fracking
Can you see a trend here?
Other interesting stats:
Top searches that start with How To…
- How to Draw
- How to Kiss
Top searches that start with Did…
- Did Turtleman die?
- Did Jesus exist?
Needless to say, the top trending searches for 2014 are mostly related to the World Cup.
So I decided to look through my (all time) site stats to check out the top search terms.
#1 Dianne Gray (lucky that’s my name)
#2 Laughing cat (okay, this is weird)
#3 Snake (it’s getting worse)
Try it out, you may be surprised (and weirded out like I was).
The cane harvesting season has now started, bringing a flurry of activity to the farm. Our sugar cane hasn’t been cut yet, but I’ve got the camera on the ready to share with you once they start.
Until then, for your viewing pleasure I happened to capture this magnificent rainbow the other morning. It’s odd how the light below the rainbow is brighter than above it, but this is exactly how it looked.
Let me know if you have any strange search terms in your stats
Have a great week all!
