Unusual Google Search terms trends.
Some weird search terms were topping the Google trends chart today. http://www.google.com/trends
The plot thickens.
Even more odd was that up to 70% of the searches were being made from a very small geographical area. Namely Stevens Point, Wisconsin http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&tab=wl and Appleton, Wisconsin http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&tab=wl
The evidence trail is hot.
Search term “without the coupon it s called shoplifting”
Search term “twisty teasers”
Search term “felix unger”
The final act.
Well it turns out that little Stevens Point is, just now, hosting it’s 40th Annual World's Largest Trivia contest, Trivia 40 http://www.90fmtrivia.org/ The trivia contest has a theme which changes each year, this time it is a Humphrey Bogart theme.
Stevens Point normally has a population of 24,000 people. But during the contest the population swells by up to 50%. This year the contest has 450 teams with about 12,000 players many having travelled from afar to take part. http://wcco.com/local/trivia.humphrey.bogart.2.983015.html
It is obvious that very many of these players has made sure that they have access to the internet and in particular Google. Naughty, naughty. Busted.
Here is looking at you Google!
