Grandad and Granny rule — 15 Comments

  1. Congrats to Granny and Grandad! Your competitiveness rubbed off so I did a bit of googling myself and was disappointed to find myself only 3rd on the list of Feebees of the world. So I googled himself and he is 3rd too! And we are both top of the Irish google lists! Is this a phenomenon? Any other husband and wife bloggers available to test the theory?

  2. Congrats on your number 1 status, and number 4 worldwide!
    Fecker is a funny term. You don’t hear of it here in America. I only first heard it from Angela’s Ashes. Is it considered a “bad word” in Ireland, like the “f” word here? I’m thinking not!
    Love reading your blog 🙂

  3. Granny & Grandad DO RULE! No granny porn tho’ please!

    When I google my FULL name, my blog & website are #1. (Natch…after all, I AM the worlds 1st & ONLY Traveling Bra.) But if I google “Olga bra” I’m #7 – topped only by sites selling Olga brand bras. (A BIG company.) So, I’m happy. 🙂

    Hope you are having a wonderful day Grandad!

  4. Quickroute – Seing as my number one search term is “senior porn”, we are used to it!!

    FeeBee – Obviously we are a country that strongly believes in equality?

    Terence – Thank fuck.

    Roy – If you are so busy, how come you’re reading this??

    Tanya – Thank you for your nice words. “Feck” is indeed a milder form of t’other word. It is one of those strange words that is often used as a term of endearment. If someone referred to me as “That mad fecker up in the mountains”, I wouldn’t mid in the least. Though they probably resort to the other word in that situation….

    Olga – No cheating. It has to be a single word search. ‘Olga’ or ‘bra’. You haven’t a chance. What surprised me is that ‘Granny’ and ‘Grandad’ are words in common everyday usage.

  5. You’re right – you ARE special!!! I’m just a plain ol’ Traveling Bra. No big deal. (shuffles away…..deflated…)

  6. Grandad,

    Google is bizarre!

    I called one post “changing money”, about my own experience of changing £500 in the 1980s. It didn’t occur to me that this would mean a Google search for “changing money” would put my blog amongst various foreign exchange sites.

  7. I naively titled one post “Pregnant by sex, I kid you not”. I won’t tell you the search terms I get for that post.

  8. I thought Google sorted by significance and relevance, which would have put my blog post at six billionth rather than sixth when someone inquired about changing money.

  9. Ian – There are all sorts of weird allegories used by Google – Site popularity, Number of high ranking sites linked to you, The position of the requested text within the page/site. No one really understands how it works [least of all, Google!].
