Funniest Google Searches for September

It’s time again for a roundup of the funniest search terms people used to find Bench2Business on Google. Most of my readers use search phrases that make sense, like “leaving academia”, and getting over jetlag faster“, or “Toronto visit”. However, there are always a few search phrases that completely baffle me or make me laugh out loud. I love sharing them with you too, and am always keen to hear what you think in the comments!

  1. Leaving society. I am at a loss for this one. Does the person what to leave society and live off the grid? Toronto isn’t the place to do this! Unless maybe if you go deep into Northern Ontario. The furthest I’ve gone is Algonquin park, but that was years ago and I haven’t written any posts about this. I suppose the only thing that comes to mind that relates was my hiking trip, where I decided to turn off my phone and be offline for five days. But you can hardly say I left society though.
  2. Christine tower. The word ‘tower’ was not capitalised, so I don’t know if they intended this as a last name? Not too shocking Google got confused and sent them here, because I’ve written about the CN Tower in Toronto a few times now.
  3. Grandest hotel in turin. This is a funny one, but it actually makes sense. I loved staying at the Grand Hotel Sitea in Turin recently. To me, it is the grandest hotel in Turn!
  4. Are you the one of a kind. What? I’d say everyone is one of a kind, right? Maybe this phrase got mixed up with my visit to Toronto’s One of a Kind Show.
  5. What is the CN tower used for. Yes people, someone Googled this one. Wikipedia has the answer in case you’re wondering too: it is used for telecommunications. Although these days it is much more a tourist attraction in Toronto than anything else. It has a glass floor, a restaurant, bistro, highest wine cellar in the sky, and if you feel very daring you can get strapped in and walk the perimeter of it (outside) with the CN Tower Edge walk.
  6. Similarities absolutely. I don’t know what do say to this one!
  7. You are loved Toronto. Yes, yes you are. Here are top reasons why I love living in Toronto.
  8. When is the best time to go. When would be the best time to go where? On holiday? Leave your job? Who knows!
  9. I love living. That’s great! I am glad, but then why Google it if you already know this?
  10. I love Toronto. I sense a theme here. I also love Toronto, but I don’t need to Google that?
  11. Things Canadian. Were they looking for Canadian things? Things that are Canadian? Not sure.
  12. I was mistaken. Good to know. Fits with the “I love” theme above in the sense of it being another plain statement. Maybe they were looking for ways to say you were wrong, or apology cards? We will never know…
