How Lazy can Some Schmucks Be?

It never ceases to amaze us that some regular readers of SI are too lazy to even bookmark our web site or type the fairly easy to remember URL in the browser.

Each time these folks want a SI fix, they do a search on the major search engines for ‘Searchindia’ or ‘Search India’  to reach at our online home. Newbies do the same too. Worse, some even search for ‘’

No kidding.

Say, how difficult can it be to bookmark us or drag our URL to the Bookmark toolbar in Firefox or IE, or, horror of horrors, to take the trouble to type in the simple URL.

BTW, the name is SI, (a la Bond, James Bond).

Hard to understand our people.

Just impossible.

    Ha ha i do it! Responds:

    Yes, we’ve seen you do it. 😉

    There are lot of others who do it too.

    Some go as far as to type ‘’ in Google. That is weird, even by Indian standards.

    Was the post directed at the schmuck called what_if ? 🙂 Is it so that you keep a track of IP addresses of people who log in directly and loose track if they access through google search ?

    The Laptop at home has your link bookmarked & saved under the favorites (since the time I registered) but at office its not, (only work related sites are saved in favorites) for the simple reason that our nosey IT guys should not blame poor SI for the loss of employee’s productive hours you see 🙂 that’s the reason Searchind is typed in Google search and in fractions of secs the list comes up – the second entry is your blog, dbl click on that and voila! There you are !

    To Boobs…oops…Boops & to you – recently Doctor (not our half doc, SI, any idea if he is full Dr. by now?) reprimanded for puffing again – albeit occasionally, hence with double determination & will power – now have kicked the damn habit once & for all. Happy days are back again !. Responds:

    1. You write: Was the post directed at the schmuck called what_if ?

    Not particularly. There are several who do it.

    As you can see above, a previous commenter has already confessed to doing so.

    2. Your efforts to quit smoking reminds us of a funny quote: Quitting smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I’ve done it dozens of times.

    This topic amuses me.

    It’s like you’ve got too much time that you wanna while away desperately. 😛

    Btw, I’m curious, how do you know that the readers do a google search to get to SI? Responds:

    BTW, we’re curious to know how babies are made. 😉

      probably google analytics. its free. Responds:

      No. It ain’t Google Analytics.

      SI is often under attack from various quarters forcing us be on the qui vive always and occasionally prompting us to even take preemptive action.
