I’ve been on the internets for a while now. A fun little experiment I have done a few times – and will share here – is to test the waters (in this case, google) to see what *if any* kind of “internet presence” I have.
Spoiler Alert: It’s not much.
For example, go to google and type in “trokspot” and it already thinks you’ve made a mistake. “Did you mean: tankspot” is what google will ask you. That said, the first few pages that pop up on the google listings are mine. So there’s a small victory there, I suppose.
There are some search terms that will bring up a trokspot post on the first page of google results. So in that sense, perhaps I am gaining some sort of “web presence.” Try these:
“trokspot” –> no, it’s not tankspot…
“titanic stratification” –> hey, #1 result here!
“wheel of fortune drinking game” –> another #1 result!
“rocky and the american dream”
“puppy thoughts” –> just made the front page on this one
“sunbelt granola bars”
So, although google thinks that you must have made a mistake if you are searching for “trokspot”, there actually are several posts that come up on google’s first page of results. This isn’t an exhaustive list (perhaps you’ll find more!), but it’s kind of nice to see that trokspot pops up (even if only on occassion), even when the search terms are pretty general.
