It started one year ago. It was the first mischievous project that Clay Morgan (a.k.a. Mr. Educlaytion of March Movie Madness fame) and I undertook together. We named it SearchBombing, and we want to do it again.
Here is the post and video we put together last year. Read it, leave a comment, then go check your stats. We’re coming to SearchBomb you.
Many bloggers are intrigued with the search results that bring people to their blog. Whether it’s “decapitated Barbie doll” or “giving your kid the middle finger,” looking at these phrases can be amusing, scary, and baffling.
But what if a person were to intentionally search bizarre phrases in order to haunt another blogger?
That is precisely what I did to Clay Morgan of Educlaytion.
It all started innocently enough. I was trying to link to a post Clay wrote a long time ago. I couldn’t find the post I was looking for, so I started throwing random search terms into Google, such as “Ironic Mom can’t find what she’s looking for on Educlaytion.”
These search terms got
a tad substantially more ridiculous as the evening wore on.
Clay discovered them.
He, in his own words, had been Search Bombed.
What follows is a bizarre reenactment of the night’s events. This video is a Free Trade, Ironic Mom/Educlaytion co-production, as edited by the ever-talented Clay Morgan.
Now, it’s your turn. Leave a comment below, and both Clay and I will Search Bomb you. Clay’s honour (with a “u”).
And, in the spirit of April Fool’s, go Search Bomb another blogger you love. Let’s start a Search Bomb Revolution.
