Today in my boredom I typed in asdf in google in Firefox and noticed this keyword was surprisingly one of the auto-complete option, it was the longest one so I went with it.

I began wondering the affect a unique keyword such as the the title of this article "asdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjkl" would have on Google or yahoo or even perhaps bing/msn search results. Is it possible to get a simple yet meaningless blog post with a crazy title like asdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjkl to become a top 10 listing on google when this keywoard is searched?

Please post a comment if this is also how you found this post. I am very interested to see the impact of keywords in the title for blog posts in web pages. I find it fascinating!

Did know urban dictionary actual has an entry for "asdfghjkl" ? How crazy is that. The letters represent the home (middle) row of the keyboard typed out from left to right.
Urban dictionary defines "asdfghjkl" as  "An expression of frustration for IM; Used in desperation when no other words will do."

Hilariousness that can come from boredom and google.. and typing asdfghjkl
