I've been googled!

I just found out that 43% of all searches in the Google box at right have been for "jenn lee." I’m baffled by this number! What are you trying to find out? What do you want to know?

You were no doubt extremely disappointed (and shocked) when Google returned more than 2.2 million results. Sad but true, I have two of the most common names in the world. Even sadder perhaps, the first Jenn Lee that’s actually me appears on page 3 of the results, and it’s only a reference to this site posted at via Pocket PC Thoughts. I don’t appear again until page 6, and that’s also a reference posted at jkOnTheRun. And, well, you get the idea.

If you want to know more about me, you’re going to have to come directly to the source. I posted a gadget-related bio here a few weeks ago. Other than that, I recently got married, live in Hawaii, and own a small editing business (my "real" job).

Divulging much else will turn this into a personals ad!

    Duh, its one of two things…

    Either people are looking for another Jenn Lee and arriving at your site…

    Or… its because you’re posting about kewl gadgets like the UX180P (which has been referenced at Handtops and other places which are largely guy hangouts) and guys like myself are immediately intrigued by the thought of a chick that’s into gadgets. Of course, I know from other posts you’ve made that you’re married, but not all do, so they’re doing their research to see if you’re single and hot before they try to hit on you. :) After all, what gadget wielding dude wouldn’t be in total bliss to be with a gadget loving hottie…

    BTW: when I commented on your Hello Kitty MP3 player and said I was in a “seven year old girls hell”, I meant it… I didn’t mean “heaven”, as being a 30 year old male, reading about a cutesy wootsy Hello Kitty MP3 player was sort off like being asked by my wife to pickup some tampons for her on my way home from work… :)

  • Ha ha!

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear, but I was referrring ONLY to the searches made in the Google box in the sidebar on this site. So people are already here when they’re looking me up.

    Your second explanation never crossed my mind. Do men really think like this?! I always forget that I’m treading in mostly male territory, though it’s obvious when I can register as “Jenn” in just about every gadget forum around (in all other arenas, I think that name is one of the first ones taken).

    Oh, and I knew you meant “hell.” I didn’t expect to see Hello Kitty mentioned in the same sentence as tampons, though!

    I don’t know if we all think that way, but I’ll admit I do (though since I’m married, I tend to leave it at that)… so while they may not be doing google searches and arriving at your site, once they’re on your site and realize you’re a gadget loving chick, they do some quick recon to learn more about you.. I call it the “Jr. High drive by” (though it usually occurs in high school)… same concept… a guy finds a girl he likes, so he “checks things out” by driving by late at night… some call it stalking, but in reality we just want another look… :)

  • Hi Jenn

    Of course, you can even join an online address book like WikiWorldBook or Ziggs that offer you a Search Alert service, that warns you when you’ve been Googled.

    The address book places your name (on your profile) high up in the search engine results and when someone Googles your name, the profile will be clearly visible in the search engine results and be an obvious target to investigate. The moment they have clicked your profile, you will be alerted by email with information about where the searcher is loacted, if they are searching you from a business, the keyword used to find you and the search engine being used.

    Obviously it won’t pick up every time you are being Googled because it depends on your profile being clicked – but if its truely you they are searching for, the chances are good they will click your profile.
