Mightier Than The Pen

Making The World A Bitter Place

I, for One, Welcome Our HOT GIRL-ON-GIRL ACTION Overlords

Here at the back end (snicker) of Mightier than the Pen we are privy (double snicker) to all manner of BS (OK, that was a gimme) wrought by the poopyheads (more of the same) who program bots with the sole task of making innocent users think their blogs have been visited by actual people. You know, the species that posts to Facebook? Anyway, for some reason these %$#@-for-brains marketers (a redundancy, of course) seek ever-more-innovative ways to get eyeballs to their (clients’) sites through whatever nefarious means possible – which may or may not include misleading descriptions to attract visitors (this site, you will note, is devoid of such underhanded tactics; we refrain, nobly, from employing such cheap methods as repeated use of the phrase HOT GIRL-ON-GIRL ACTION!).

But as WordPress and their ilk have gotten better and better at screening out the false trails of bots visiting their users’ sites, the spammers have gotten desperate, and now the bots leave fake “search terms” they “used” to “find” the sites, perhaps in the hope that the occasional dupe of a user will plug those terms into a bona fide search engine and maybe, perhaps, if the stars align just so, will stumble upon the desired site (HOT GIRL-ON-GIRL ACTION!). Or I have it all wrong and they’ve actually taken over the internet and are just messing with the rest of us. I, for one, welcome our new %$@-for-brains overlords.

As you can tell, we have given this topic WAAAY more attention than it deserves, but bear with us (HOT GIRL-ON-GIRL ACTION!). The following helpful chart uses actual, genuine search terms, as recorded by WordPress, that led visitors to Mightier than the Pen. You will note that as the terms get more and more unlikely, they become more and more likely to be the work of a retrofitting, signature-falsifying bot. Or possibly the Jews. At least that’s what the old guy over at the next terminal keeps mumbling. Oatmeal hedonism, indeed.

  1. Titter…

    • Somebody should develop a script that kills the visiting bots. Call it a booby trap.

  2. Don’t you get any Cyrillic terms? I seem to get loads of them. I’ve never posted any Russian in my life… I haven’t yet got round to pasting them into Google Translate, mainly out of fear for what they might reveal…

    • In Russian they’re just translated from bad Nigerian.
