Remember Googlewhacking? searching Google with two random obscure words that only resulted in 1 single return, not millions as you normally get?

Well today I made a sale where the buyer used 3 keywords, I like to see where my image appears when those said words are searched for. To my surprise out of nearly 13 million images those 3 small searched words resulted in only one image return and that was mine :-) Not 3 rare weird words but 3 regular words and one return, now I'm going to add a couple more images to that hole :-)

I don't know if this is easy to find on here or not but lets try for fun, search using 3 keywords and if you get a return that is only one image, not your own image, the first to post on here and when I check it out it works then I will buy a 5 credit picture from you as your reward. This may be dead easy but I have not tried it but hey, it's nearly the weekend and I'm feeling generous :-)

I used the search term, Red, Automobile, Invisible and came up with this single image:

   Gift car   

It is amazing, however, when one picks seemingly random, unrelated words how many responses do come up. I hope others will show their responses, this was most interesting.

Congratulations Bob, your a winner................ maybe I should have made this harder using only two words :-) I will buy something today from you for 5 credits, spend this money wisely :-)

@ Jimakosbook "castle, gate, hammett" returns 4,082 images for me rather than one.

This could be fun.................. as Bob has beat everyone else to a pulp with his invisible red automobile and earned a 5 credit sale. Lets try this in true Googlewhack fashion, now find a single image using only two keywords, in English, not returning your own image and rather than the prize going to the fiastest, to give everyone a chance I'll buy a 5 credit sale from a randomly selected contributor on Tue's 31'st Jan so you get the sale in before month end. So two random English words returning one result, lets see what holes we can find in the DT database, all those missing opportunities :-) Bob you are eligible to take part in this to :-) Good luck all and happy Dreamstimewhacking :-)

Hi, Brett, as I said, I think it would be fair to withdraw from the two-word competition and give someone else a chance to win, but I couldn't resist the search. I started with Cat Dog and, of course, that was huge. I then started shifting animals and adjectives and ended up with Weasel Words. This is the only entry I found:

   Writing brush   

And I thought that combination would return images of dozens of U.S. Politicians! ;-)

Thanks for a fun search!

Off topic a little, but this is cool. In Google type the words... do a barrel roll.
