Disturbing Search Requests

"This website serves the purpose to reflect upon the process of finding web sites by using search machines. If you write a weblog on a regular basis, chances are you're going to post quotes from other sites, opinions from other people etc. But since weblogs are highly linked to and from, they get indexed very well by search engines. So, even if you only once wrote about your hamster, and on the same day mentioned you were wearing a three piece suit, google just might list you as No.1 for 'hamster suit'. Now just imagine that you check your referer logs and you find a query from a search engine, looking for 'hamster suit'. This is where this site kicks in." via metafilter
