The best I can get for the SOAR main page is Gassy Samurai, with 50 some hits.<P>I can get down to one on the fanart page with Deafmute Telethon. Too bad deafmute is two words.

bavarians electrolux <I>sort of</I> works, except
1) do plurals count?, and
2) it hits EVERY page with my storyline pulldown on it, and
3) electrolux isn't listed at dictionary.com.
So I guess it doesn't work at all.

Google-whacking, as you probably know, is the game of trying to find a two-word combination that returns *exactly* one hit in Google. If you didn't know that, read the technical stuff at the end of this post.<P>Now, this here thread is for self-indulgent google-whacking - finding a google-whack that returns a page on *your site* as the sole hit.<P>If you don't have a site, your site is <a href=http://www.soaprope.com>Soap on a Rope</a>.<P>Here's one for me: <a href=http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=lethiferous+hooch><I>lethiferous hooch</I></a>
Score: 466,860,000.<P><font size=0>
1. Words must be recognized by dictionary.com - if the results include a blue bar with each word underlined, just above the pages it found, then it's fine.<P>2. The one page returned cannot be a page that's a list of words. Moot point here.<P>3. You can't enclose the two words in quotes - that makes it search for the literal phrase, and it's cheating.<P>4. Score is the results of each word found separately, multiplied together. For instance, <I>lethiferous</I> serves up 7,470, <I>hooch</I> 62,000, ergo <I>lethiferous hooch</I> is worth 466,860,000.<P>------------------

This doesn't count as a googlewhack (cause of the stupid dictionary) but boxjam whacker returns a single result.<P>As a bonus, that result is only available through the google cache.
