Based on the fact that I have received some pretty mean spirited emails about my posts on Gothic Google and Emo Google I thought I should give equal coverage to those who I believe are sending those emails.
And I will admit that Redneck Google (also known as Hoogle) looks to have a little more technology than either of the Gothic or Emo pages. Each of those pages are simply a cover page that leads to regular Google results using a Google Custom Search Engines.
Redneck Google is actually a translator page that converts your normal search terms into a Redneck version with links to valid search results. Pretty impressive for a bunch of Rednecks ! Looking through the results it is obvious that this site has actually done their research and truly understand what Redneck means.
Note : Currently GooGoth (Gothic Google) is returning errors.
Last month I mentioned Google Gothic (GooGoth.com) and made a joke about “I guess the next thing is an Emo version of Google.”.
Obviously I did not do my homework on the subject because Emo Google is online. So I guess if you want to Define Emo, just check them out.
Now, if you are wondering why I even mention this, I found the data on Emo Google to be interesting. Here is a site that has 1 page and let’s look at some numbers.
- 1 Page indexed by Google
- NO outbound links
- Page Rank 3
- All sub / leaf pages are a Google hosted Custom Search Engine
Probably the most interesting fact is that they they are using Google in their domain name. I thought Google would crush that immediately.
And how about the PR 3 with only a one page website. Just goes to show how inbound links are the heart and soul of Page Rank.
Of course that is no surprise if you have read the definition of Page Rank by Google.
Ok, just a little off beat stuff, I am not sure why it is popular, but Googoth.com has risen to a point of having a pretty good fan base.
Like I said, not sure why. The results are not really that impressive, very little data and the Gothic logo is about the only thing Gothic on the site. Reminds me of the old days when screen savers where the hot thing to program for no reason, lol.
I guess the next thing is an Emo version of Google.
