How dumb are you people?

By johnboy 17 February 2011 24

graph of stupidity

So above is a screenshot of the most googled terms by web users in the ACT.

Yes. People googling Facebook, unable to type “.com” for themsleves.

Followed by “youtube”, and then.. then… the horror… canberrans searching google for google.

I despair.

UPDATE: Thanks to Mr Waffle for pointing me at this video:

witty people are trying to find GOOGLE on google. It is like trying to find your phone by switching on the flashlight of your own phone with your own phone :p

I was surprised to see the Canberra Times listed among the rising searches – but not Riotact. Looks as though there’s life in the old girl yet …

Trending up off a very low base ifiled. A peak on Sunday of 100 searches. (click the linky)

On the other hand yesterday alone 500 people googled “Riot ACT”, 428 googled “riotact”, 145 googled “the riot act”, 83 googled “riot act canberra”, and there’s about ten other variations all with similar numbers.

Actually, how dumb is the person that wrote this post? Those are “search terms” dimwit. They are the individual words or word groups (ie: quoted words) that people use in their searches. Facebook is probably at the top because lots of people search for “facebook my ex-girlfriend who I want to stalk”. You tube would be up there because a lot of people search for “youtube cats doing funny shit”.

Personally I search for google services and documentation a lot, such as “google c2dm” so I’ve contributed to increasing the ranking of Google as a search term.

Nice work though. I applaud your balls out attempt to be superior.

Oops. Someone’s feelings were hurt.

I think they are actually search phrases. Because of how “facebook login” appears at #7

And anyhow, they would be better off searching for: “my ex-girlfriend who I want to stalk” site:facebook.com
