Looks like an interesting little fad out on the net now is to search for a Googlenope. What is this? According to the Washington Post’s Gene Weingarten, it is search result on Google that results in zero hits. Mr Weingarten seems to have created the word…at the time that he made the word, it was a Googlenope itself.

I found myself doing a search on Google to find a Googlenope…and found the following two:

“eric brown genius” Dangit!

“eric brown idiot” Whew!

Now….in a few days, hopefully “eric brown genius” will no longer return zero hits. Wait…I guess that means that “eric brown idiot” will show up to. I guess this post didn’t work out like I had hoped 🙂

Have a great week everyone….spend some time looking for your own googlenope’s.

    Interesting post. Apparently, there’s now a website at for posting your Googlenopes and letting the world vote on them. It’s pretty clever, and well worth checking out!
