The Kids Nowadays

What kids searched for this summer. Seeing "sex" and "porn" at #4 and #6 reminds me of how, from age 10 to 15, I looked up "fuck" every time I picked up a dictionary. Some terms you might also need to Google:

  • "Webkinz" (#16)
  • "Runescape" (#37)
  • "Nigahiga" (#99)
  • "Miniclip" (#18)
  • "Poptropica" (#54)
  • "Hoedown Throwdown" (#61)
  • "naked girls" (#86)

It's not like the spammers are reading that, as far as I can tell they just robot-fill everything that looks like a comment form.

Nope, it's all humans in my case. There have been a few long threads about it here. They are people who are attempting to address the topic, but failing miserably.

I'm late to this post but I still feel it necessary to tell the world that NOBODY needs to Google "Hoedown Throwdown." Now: buy my product!
