Googlewhacking

Googlewhacking. A new game where you try to find a pair of words that results in only one page match on Google. Multiply the frequency of each word in Google by each other for your score.

For example, ripieno (18,300) and nucleotide (341,000) appear on only one page together (a glossary in Italian), for a score of 6,240,3000,000. And it took nearly an hour of 3 of us in my office to come up with that example!

Well, how ’bout cockatiel colonoscopy, for an individual word score of 4,620,000,000? That one took me about 10 minutes … not bad. 🙂

I found bibulous encomiums in a couple of minutes, but I had the advantage of a list of words I recently looked up in my pocket. 2590×4930=12,768,700

Okay, manxome esophagus probably doesn’t count, as “manxome” is a word Carroll came up with, but it’s still worth 1650 x 198,000 = 32,670,000 points.

I find it humorous that sites on Googlewhacking are self defeating. Once you post your googlewhack, it is quickly indexed and reduces the value. Perhaps that is the point, to be the first and only one to find the googlewhack. But I suggest it is more fun for the sport to leave the find unspoiled. Perhaps a subtle misspelling would solve the issue.

“floppy negritude” gets about 23 billion, while “lisp decani” scores a mighty 33 and a half billion. My favourite is “contrabass schadenfreude” – a very low form of pleasure. And “arsehole teleology” – goal-directed turdburglary

I saw that you’re into googlewhacking, and just wanted to point you to my site, which makes the game a lot more fun: http://www.googlewhacker.com. It keeps track of high scores, words most commonly searched, etc. Hope you enjoy it.

You don’t need to get so far from home. It’s not a high score, but it sticks greatly to the gamename.

well teamstart toronto works for a score of 2,157,400,000. Was a totally accidental find, but the result of 1 hit triggered my memory of a recent newspaper article about this game. BTW I used google to find this site.
