Korrith-inspired Googlewhack search - 600P prize

Postby Fleur » Wed May 31, 2006 1:09 pm

If anyone has time on their hands I will give 600P to the person who can find the most (or even one) googlewhacks before 7pm EST on Friday 2nd June.

You must provide the googlewhack(s) search terms and the one link that comes up on google for it, on this thread with your character name and cid.

You may not use googlewhacks already found and posted by another person on this thread.

You cannot use non-English words unless they are in common usage. All words must be found in dictionary.com. No names allowed. The resulting googlewhack MUST be a real site, not just a list of words. Oh, and you can't used whacks already listed on a site such as googlewhack.com or the whack stack. Trust me, we'll know if you cheat (I'm a teacher, remember?)

Jimmy Kitten, as our new resident googlewhack expert, will help decide which entries are acceptable. Our decision is final.

In the event of a draw, we will decide which googlewhack / list thereof, is the most creative.

Just for the record, when playing around with this, the fewest results I turned up was 29. I can't remember what for exactly, something like 'lugubrious facecloth.'

Enjoy, if you have free time.

any chance that you will tell us what a googlewhack is?
Trying to make sense of gods and goddesses has led many men to ruin. I suggest you avoid it from now on.

A googlewhack is where you enter two random words into the google search engine, and get one site back as your results. To be a true googlewhack it has to be a genuine site, not just a site with random lists of words. It also has to follow the rules laid out above.

Sorry Zanaan, that's just a list of words!

so wait, if some of the results are just a list of words they dont count, so if there is one that actually usues one and three that dont and only 4 results, do those count?

Sadly not. That's what makes it so difficult.

Unfortunately 'fingerlicken' does not appear in the dictionary (for this, dictionary.com) - I looked at 'finger-licking retriever' but it had 112 results...

As it says to the left......I talk WAY too much. ;)
And yes, I am fully aware that currently it says so to the right, rather than the left, which used to be the location for said line, but I am simply too lazy to change it for you.

politicology sunburn.

politicology does not appear in dictionary.com, nor on answers.com, although I'm fairly certain it's an English word.....

OK, pineco is out as it isn't in the dictionary.
As for freerunning - I'm contemplating it. Will consult with JK (googlewhacker extraordinaire) and get back to you on this one, technically the word is free-running.

viperoides homemade gives 14 results, of which 8 are irrelevant according to google, and 5 are wordlists, leaving only 1 normal site. Does this count too?

edit: another question, about viperoides googlewhack. Dictionary.com has a result for googlewhacking, but not for googlewhack itself.

beertending is not in the dictionary so even if fleur decided to accept freerunning, that wouldn't count.

if politicology does not appear in dictionary.com, it doesn't count. personally i found a googlewhack where 1 word wasn't in dictionary.com even though i knew it was a word and didn't post it.

and as for results where you get lists and only one real result, i found at least 5 and probably a lot more of those but didn't post them because after consulting with fleur, we didn't think it was what a googlewhack meant.

so sorry, thorin! i don't find any of your entries to be true googlewhacks!

as for whether a word variant is allowed, yes, i think so. googlewhack is obviously the noun form of googlewacking. so if 'googlewacking' is in the dictionary, 'googlewhack' counts, much like if 'run' is in the dictionary, you can consider 'running' a word.

as far as dictionary.com being the authority for googlewhacks, i didn't make the rules, but it specifically says that dictionary.com is what you should check for googlewhacks.
