Comments: Uncommon Google items - "Real Sex", Counts, Distinctive Sentences

Hello Seth, and thanks for calling out my post.

Using Google's search suggestions feature and their keyword tool on adwords, we've got a little better picture of just what Google thinks of

The long and the short is that, although I try to stay away from assumptions that "google's out to get the porn people" we've seen some fairly distressing data points about our site and others.

For example, using only the text from our index page, Adwords suggests [anabollic], [cum fiesta] and [wife craves black cock] as possible keywords. I'd like to know by what process those words were arrived at.

Thanks here too. That "study" was fun, maybe because it was so surprising: For all the simple math that suggests a nearly infinite number of legal eight-word English-language sentences, it's still surprising to see how rarely seemingly ordinary sentences actually occur.

I love "studies" (sorry for the scare quotes, but with a sample size in the low hundreds, it was mostly anecdotal) that are fun to do and fun to report--particularly since that fun is usually the primary payoff.
