Fun things people have searched for on — and we have no idea why!

Earlier in the year, I shared with you a little bit about how the Andertons website team view our internal site search experience.

Part 1: Helping you find your perfect guitar with EasyAsk search technology
Part 2: Search Laboratory - Improving search with data & lab rats

As a fun closer to my little series about search, I thought I’d compile a list…

These are all real searches made by people on All of the data we are looking at is entirely anonymous so we know next-to nothing about these individuals who used our site, other than what they asked us when they got here.

Some of these are clearly mistakes, or maybe bots, and others are far more intentional. That’s what makes this all the more... interesting! Proceed with caution: you may find some of the searches below a little blue.

And finally… One poor soul, desperately confused about the services Andertons provide, apparently also having a terrible search relaxation experience:

Are you now thinking about searching for something terrible or offensive on For once, we don’t want to know what you’re thinking, and please don’t hit “go”.
