What's a Googlenope?

Definitely not "Googlenope" - at least any longer. Once it's here, it's no longer one.

A Googlenope is a phrase or very brief sentence that, entered into the Google search engine with quotation marks around it, produces no hits. Google comes back at you with "Your search ... did not match any documents." Put another way, your word combination is such a  loser that it has never been found in the searchable online universe!

Credit for coining the term goes to Gene Weingarten at The Washington Post. Links to his Googlenope column that started it all are shown below. You can annoy Gene at weingarten@washpost.com. Better still, buy his books on Amazon.com; that'll really show him.

Anyone can come up with a Googlenope - "as45lkuffjsa98difu" is a Googlenope, or at least it was before it showed up here. But a really good Googlenope - whether it makes you snort milk out your nose, peer deeply into the human condition, and/or cc: everyone in your address book - is a much rarer find.

That's where Googlenope.com - and you - come in. We're looking for the best Googlenopes and the best Googlenopers. The viewers are the judges. Your votes separate the wheat from the chaff, or at least the better dreck from the lesser dreck. If your ego's not fragile, upload yours for judging. Enjoy!
