Here's another question about the interwebbynetz thing.




Okay, you young whippersnappers - I'm a little embarrassed to admit to this, but about once a month or so, I do a search in the Google on "harsens-rob", just to see who may have referenced an entry I've made. I always find it a surprise (1) because I get a lot more hits than I would ever think, based on who had Friended me and (2) because I always get picked up by sites that seem to have no actual connection to anything I've written.

I can only think that there are aggregations going on that are completely automated and some of these sites, which I doubt anyone actually visits because they're so randomly named, are grabbing my entries for some arcane reason. So, here's the question - how do some of these sites work & what the heck are they?


friendfeed.com, asylums.insanejournal.com, righthealth.com, 123people.com, yasni.co.uk, fandomnews.dreamwidth.org, fantook.com, findbargainprices.info, iscanmyfood.com, koranus.com, pipl.com, bestwebhostingmu.com....


And it just goes on and on and on, but things like "find bargain prices"?! I don't have anything for sale from my site...!

"Righthealth?",  "I scan my food?" WTH?

I just find it all so weird and non-sensical.
