I'm starting a new search engine which ranks jokers at the top

Updated on June 20, 2010

There is a really unfair bias in the Google search engine to return sites that are serious over sites that joke around with what people are looking for.

In light of this, I'm starting a new search engine JOKLE which will be based on a different assumption. It will assume a person searching for something will just be wanting a laugh rather than really want to search for the thing they type in.

Here's some examples.


If you're searching for jobs on JOKLE you will get Stan Fletcher's hub telling you about the most humiliating jobs around like pulling dead cows out of a paddock with a tractor and standing in a banana suit on the corner of a street for hours and hours.

Make Money Online

So you'd like to know how to make money online? Serious stuff. JOKLE delivers with amazing inaccuracy. The kind of inaccuracy you expect when you just need a laugh. Google have managed to keep it a secret that the way to make money online is actually to sell worms. Check out Nicomp's hub for more.

Alternative Energy Sources

Ok, we know alternative energy is the way of the future and it is really important to research the latest site bringing you exactly that - the latest so that you stay right up to date.

Again JOKLE will deliver like no other search engine. Ranked number one is The Old Firm's hub on Guinea Pig Power - the picture below comes from it. Check it out!

Backpacking around Europe or Grape Picking or Begging

For these search terms (either one will do on JOKLE) you will find yourself directed to Sparhawke'shub. It wont be exactly what you were looking for but that's the beauty of JOKLE - it's a search engine that doesn't give you what you meant to get unlike other search engines like GOOGLE which always seem to take what you are searching for seriously.

Now look at the next picture of a typically weird and wonderful suggestion from the Jokle search engine.

This kind of "stuck" drop-down suggestion box bearing ridiculously mismatched terms will be a regular feature on JOKLE. You'll have NO CHOICE but to click on despite your sensible keyword. Heehee.

against their will JOKLE will force searchers to view hubs that provide laughs
against their will JOKLE will force searchers to view hubs that provide laughs


Anyways, number one on JOKLE for pedicure is Mega1's hub . As for the big bang theory associated with it...well, as already stated, there will be nothing you'll be able to do about trying to find pedicure without it on Jokle. 

I know, normally you couldn't imagine pedicure and the big bang theory to have anything whatsoever to do with each other but that's where JOKLE comes in and Mega1.

Work from Home

When you search for Work from Home on JOKLE, you'll end up at this little hub by yours truly!

If you have any suggestions for the JOKLE search engine let me know...I promise I'll take your suggestions seriously! Oh yeah!

      "The Worms" would be a great name for a rock band. And I should know, 'cause I wrote an authoritative hub on the subject.

      Thanks for the shoutout! I think it's a great idea. I'll be willing to be VP of Staring Off Into Space, that is, if you need more people in the corporate office.

      Cheers James...if only I was serious...I'd actually love to do this because I don't know if it has ever been done - do you? I'll look after the programming side if you'd like to do the marketing!
