I received an unsolicited email this morning telling me that my blog is a Googlewhack. I contrived to make it one once before but this is genuine and discovered by someone else.

I'm the only website in the world with an onomatapapaeic carpet.

Check it is still the case here

(It won't last for long- I'm trying out Wordpress and have imported my blog over there so Google will pick that up in due course.)

...onomatapapaeic carpet...?

Truly? I'm honoured to be in your presence, sir.

Congratulations Ian, I didn't even know what a Googlewhack is. Someone actually googled that term? So excited that you lost count of the pa's as Professor James pointed out.

Nice one.

I have been trialling WordPress for another blog. The drawbacks I can see so far are they only allow 50MB photo storage before you have to pay (Blogger is 1GB) and you can't use any JavaScript.

But your blog definitely looks better there.

Congratulations. Like jmb, I didn't know what a googlewhack was till someone explained it on my blog. [I didn't achieve one, btw - only nearly!]

Oxymoron, if I moved, it would be to hosted space rather than at Wordpress. I keep meaning to make my Blogger template nicer but am looking for the circular TUIT.

Apparently I don't qualify as a true Googlewhack as Onomatapaeia is the Google dictionary word.
