Make something out of this…Google searches

Googlism.com is a website created 14 years by a couple of Australian guys who wanted  a fun tool to see what Google “thinks” of certain topics and people.

Of course, as they make clear, Google isn’t thinking at all. And the site has no connection whatsoever with the Google we all know and use

“…the results are not really Google’s opinion, they’re yours, the web site owners of the world…we simply search Google and let you know what website owners think about the name or topic you suggested.”

When I discovered the website I just had to have a go. I’m not sure if it’s still being maintained (a lot can happen in 14 years), but it still produces results under WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN headings. What can you do with the answers? The original creators suggest you search for your name or check out some of the popular Googlisms. I say that there has to be a poem in it…

First I tried where I live. Here’s the first 6 results:

brighton is definitely the place to be
brighton is 1
brighton is insurance still needed
brighton is about a 75
brighton is aglow with the feel
brighton is please?

Given today’s significance I also searched for EUROPE. This is the first 6 results Googlism.com came up with:

europe is listening
europe is poorer without poland
europe is no longer here
europe is hot
europe is so unwired
europe is with us

It’s a whole new genre…Google poetry
