    Yeah, I didn't get it either until a friend explained it to me.

    A Googlewhack describes a combination of two words that results in a single search it through Google. Even more of a rarity is the Googlewhackblatt, a single word that results in a single search result.

    As of right now, if you Google my Greek last name, you get only one result, which was probably some kind of unique me list on my blog.

    The problem is, you can only find a googlewhack or a googlewhackblatt once. Having once been discovered, it multiplies.

    The workaround is to type in your Googlewhackblatt backwards into the search engine elgooG. That page will invert your results the right way through scripting without harming your find.

    Dee, could you restate that in English? Try re-reading that first post. See if it makes sense. :smile:
