ProBlogger Readers Prefer ‘No Show Briefs’

Posted By Darren Rowse 29th of April 2008 ProBlogger Site News 41

OK – time for a ‘comical’ interlude.

I was just over at the ProBlogger Book page at Amazon and scanned down the page to see this:

OK – so what ProBlogger reader is searching for ‘no show briefs’?

  1. Wow, that is…disturbing to say the least.

  2. Hmmm.


  3. haha that’s really funny. You can’t do anything online anymore without bein noticed!

    PS: it wasn’t me :)

  4. Gotta love the humor in the Search Patterns…..this one looked awfully plain!

  5. Wasn’t me – I wear boxers.

  6. Oh that really made me laugh and the photo is so funny. Would any guy really wear those. No, don’t tell me. :0)

  7. Poor Darren, attracking a public he’s not aiming for I think.

  8. Denial is an admission of guilt!

  9. That’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time!

    I’ve read about other authors who have seen their books listed with crazy stuff. I guess it could have been worse, but not by much.

    Little did you know about what kind of undies some your readers wear. Any by the way, it was not me.

  10. That’s disturbing.

  11. where did you get my photo from.

  12. Maybe your recent speed posts were so “brief” and … ahem … “well packaged” that it reminded a reader to purchase these? Ya gotta love the Internet!

  13. Awww crap! Busted ain’t I..the only thing is, they were too small for my man:)

  14. I guess people who want to blog full-time also need a comfortable pair of briefs to wear while blogging. Personally, I prefer boxers.

    That is really funny though! Great cross-marketing!

  15. He’s a digital photography pro.
    He’s the make money through blogging godfather.
    He’s spent time with the clergy.
    He’s got a book.

    And now he’s an underwear model.

    Darren’s got it all, folks.

  16. hehehe… that’s funny. :D

    weird how searches go..

  17. I wanna meet him – you got a dating service now, Darren?

  18. Well, when I get my ProBlogger book, I’ll make sure I wear my pair as I read it.

  19. lol I actually wear no-show briefs. They’re very comfortable :)

  20. oh man, busted… sorry Darren but the wife thinks they look hot on me.

  21. Haha – I more than one person would have had to have searched for that for it to come up as a suggested item?

    Too funny…

  22. hehe – maybe I should bring out a range of ProBlogger Briefs…. hmmmm

  23. I bet Problogger Briefs would really sell well. :) Just get some readers to look for them after clicking on your book link to Amazon and presto! they´d be right under it!

    Seriously, though, it´s great that Amazon lets you earn off people´s wanderings. I haven´t sold a single item yet that I recommended, but people have bought all sorts of other things after clicking on my affiliate links. :D

  24. Does this mean we caught you with your pants down?

  25. funny, I have the strange urge to clean spam out of my inbox…

  26. Ordinarily, modesty would prohibit me from responding, but since you did ask…

  27. We all know John Chow searched for that.

  28. It wasn’t me, I swear!

    Wasn’t me. I wear black ones.

    I did look for bikini style briefs, but not those. I wear them when i wear a suit. Keeps my suit from having that weird lump when the boxers get folded.

  31. I’m more curious in finding out when men became worried about their panty line!

  32. First time ever that I see underwear used as an incentive …

  33. Did nt know amazon was that funny. May be people like to read their book after getting comfortable. Thats a lil too comfy.

  34. Looks like they are trying to push the virtues of working from home (“Work in underwear! Wear same t-shirt 5 days in a row! Complete with ratty slippers!”)

  35. I had two search hits for druid sex, and hope the two found each other.

  36. Well you can consider blogging about briefs now..hehe

  37. You caught me! Hey, it’s lonely being a blogger!

  38. that is a funny one … Good thing I went to Barnes and Noble
