I Got Googled and I Liked It.

by J. Money on Friday, August 27, 2010

1 free google search

You know what’s it’s time for? Because it’s funny, and it’s Friday, and I’m just dead tired from a week of crazy 9-5 stuff?  Googling for Dollars!!! Haha… nah, but we are Googling for Budgets Are Sexy ;) This is when I rummage through all the keywords people are typing in which somehow landed them here on this website. You wouldn’t believe some of the crazy $hit people are searching for – half of them I can’t even put here!

Here’s what’s on people’s minds these last 24 hours:

does marrying for money work
Haha, I’m sure it does or people wouldn’t be trying! :)  I don’t know how they do it though.  There’s no way I could woo someone I wasn’t mentally and physically attracted too – even if they paid me.  It’s just so unnatural to me.

orange sacrifices or children
WHAT?!!!!  Are your kids allergic to oranges?  Are they *that* good that you’re actually debating this?  And think a website will provide you the answer? hahaahah….. I told you, craziness here every day!

how much does it to rent a casket?
Well let me tell you! I have an app post for that: a few hundred dollars

credit card roulette
Now this is a person with style :)  Credit Card Roulette is a game to see who’s’ gonna to pay for a bill. You take everyone’s credit cards, put ‘em under a napkin, and then mix them all up so you can’t tell whose is whose. Then, someone (usually the waiter) randomly selects one and declares it the “winner.” Only you do NOT want to be the winner because it’s the person who now has to pay the entire bill! So basically, it’s a game of odds.  And lots of drunken boys like to play it.

going bald gracefully
Ummm… no idea on this one, but I admire your desire to research it!

unprofessional clothing
Flip-flops and bikinis. Everything else is a gray area ;)

his paycheck is double mine but wants 50/50 expenses
Ooooh tough one.  Not enough info here to see what’s going on, but it seems like you’re not digging this situation if you’re out googling it. I would say it’s def. worth another talk with your pal there. And that you make sure 100% that BOTH parties are happy with it.  Money, as you know, is one of the biggest reasons for divorce/breakups.  The other is reading to many personal finance blogs ;)

if someone commits suicide in a home. would their ghosts be there?
SCARY!!!  And obviously hitting my  “would you buy a house someone died in” post.  My answer?  No sirree sir. Ain’t gonna happen.

swear jar rules
Oooh great idea for a post! Although it’s pretty obvious what the rules are: You swear, you put money in the jar.  Right?

live in a shed
No thanks, but how about a houseboat?

i’m so different from others
Haha…this one makes me smile :)  I wonder if it’s because they’re actually saving and rockin’ a budget (which 92.5% of the world doesn’t do (made up number)), or if they’re just dying their hair pink.  Either way embrace it! We all dye our hair pink at some point. Am I wrong?

*NEW* (as of 20 mins ago)
sexy stories of wife sacrificing virginity for husband
cheap jungle tights

Okay, that’s enough fun for one day. If you have a blog yourself, take a quick peek and let us know what people are searching to get to your site! And if you don’t have one, be careful what you’re putting out there.  The internets are free, but someone may be tracking your every move ;)

Man… I played credit card roulette at breakfast with all my buddies a few months ago at a wedding, and it seemed like a great idea… that is, until my card was pulled!

Who pays $90 for breakfast?! Fail.

I can rent out a casket cheaper than that. I have two. One is used, the other was built at home. :)

I’ve had four people come to my site this month as the result of a search for the phrase “he keeps telling me sex is overrated.”

It appears that I am gradually becoming known as the go-to guy re this sort of thing!

That’s crazy. A lot of those things don’t even relate to your site lol…
Rob Bennett, that’s pretty funny as well. Did you post on the topic or something?
Makes me want to take a look at how people are getting to mine.

Yes, I am to blame. I have an article titled “Sex Is Overrated (Or So My Wife Often Observes)”:

http://www.passionsaving.com/sex-is-overrated.html

You would be surprised how many personal finance sites fail to address this important money topic.

At least I thought it was an important money topic on the day I wrote it. I cannot today recall what it was I was thinking when I put that one up.

I guess the question of swear jar rules comes in with what happens to the money. Who gets to keep it?

These were hilarious, I must say!

Very funny! I wonder sometimes why a certain search term gets people to my site, too, but it is at least entertaining. Thanks for sharing your list and giving us a light hearted read!

A month ago I had a post about how my thumb and hand got REALLY swollen when one of my bees stung me. In the post I whine about how much it hurt and how much it cost me to see my doctor.
This week a medical/health website linked to this post. Their post: what should you do when you get stung by a bee! I went to the site and there was a picture of my swollen thumb with a link to my post. I’m glad to know I can promote whining as a medically valid way of recovering from a bee sting.

Great post. Gave me a great chuckle on a Friday.

Here is how some have gotten to my site:
-keep yourself grounded
-healthy frozen dinners
-sloppy joe pizza
-uses for bread

I find these interesting because my blog isn’t about cooking or baking at all. I do write the odd post about getting healthy but the majority of my stuff is on personal finance and being frugal and green. Google has a sense of humor I guess.

I see the search “jam or jelly” is high on google trends.

Must be a lunch thing.

@ – Haha that is awesome!!! You just never know where some of our words (and apparently pictures) will end up. I assume you weren’t typing your comment out w/ this thumb/hand? ;)

@Miss T – Any traffic is good traffic I suppose!
@Techbud – I really don’t know the difference between those two things actually… now you’re going to make ME google it! :)

LMAO – these are great, I think “renting a casket” and “sacrificing virginity for one’s husband” are my favorites. But…how does one return a rented casket?…smh…
People are googling some crazy things… “thug porn” is how a few people have ended up on my site…whodathunk???

22 Jason@LiveRealNow September 5, 2010 at 8:12 pm

Rented caskets are for viewings and are returned before the burial.

An entirely different niche market rents out caskets for kink.

@Dolla Thug – Haha… that is awesome. “Thug” anything is awesome, actually :) So good job on your name.
@Jason@LiveRealNow – “Caskets for kink”!!! You are too funny bro, freakin’ crack me up.

Re “caskets for kink,” here’s a riddle:
Q. What’s the difference between a coffin and a condom?
A. They both hold stiffs, but one’s coming and one’s going.
(Sorry. Just had to share.)
