Searching your name on Google. Ah “Babs the Brave!”

Babs goes it alone - into cyber space.

Babs goes it alone – into cyber space.

Well didn’t our Babs go and do a search your name on Google herself.

A sort of selfie for real nerds, sure enough her profile pic from Facebook appeared and that photo some one had attached to her poem about pigs innards, that was there too. It all looked very wholesome she thought. Until out of the blue she Googled again,


Welcome back to Frowns, I found this email from Babs lurking in my spam box. But ever the perfectionist to my Frowns I moved it to my inbox. ( Oh aren’t I the techie with me inbox and me spam!) Our Babs has the following issue : She took to the world of the wide web in her stride, those size 7 crocs moving at a remarkable pace considering the state of her ankles. She got on with emailing and Googling, then she found her cyber soul mate ( and I confess mine too) Pinterest! She took to it adding pretty pics from her camera: her garden in June, late Autumnal sunsets and the like. Then she took a leap of faith, created a new board. She called it “just looking at the menu” thought it was novel and a hoot! ( We here on the FHD are with you Babs, though both Carmel and Tracey ( part timers on the 2 to 5 shift) confessed they had a similar board each.  It was here that Babs would spend happy hours repinning good lookers who somehow had slipped out of her path in life, George Clooney was one that dominated and then other muscle packed chaps she admitted she hadn’t a hope of bagging but hey “God loves a Trier”. Now any of you out there familiar with SEO and the latest in Google algorithms (say wha’?) will know that our Babs was well on the way to being ranked in the top one or two on page one of a Google natural search……. ( steady there now ….the visitors are logging off…tmi !!) Well didn’t our Babs go and Google her self, a sort of selfie for real nerds, sure enough her profile pic from Facebook appeared and that photo some one had attached to her poem about pigs innards, that was there too. It all looked very wholesome she thought. Until out of the blue she Googled again, this time, hells bells, there beside her photo was some bare-chested 6 pack of a hunk. Panicking that all those searching her ( like who? you ask) would come to associate her with this overly naked hunk. It was disturbing. Why had her other Pinterest pics not shown there, those lovely knitted tea cosies, the floral displays? Just this guy. ( Now she did admit he was someone on her mind but the rest of the world needn’t know it. She took the hasty decision to delete the pin.  The Google crawler must be on a go slow as 2 wks later he is still there beside her, she sporting her dotty blue dress, this hunk of good looks. Well, Babs, just let me have a cold drink while I consider your next move. …… Right, bare with Google, keep off the good looking men for a while, he must be more popular than tea cosys , this all plays havoc with back links and PAGE Ranking…..( according to Carmel).
