WhatDoesTheInternetThink.net is a website which uses search engine results to tell you what the internet thinks on a particular subject. When you first log onto the site there’s a text entry box as seen in the screenshot below. Input your term (I entered peanut butter) and select which search engine you want it to use. You can choose between Google, Yahoo and Bing, all three or just two. However, choosing more than one means that the results can be a couple of minutes coming depending on your internet connection speed.
The results are displayed as a bar chart with three categories; Positive, Negative and “˜Don’t care’. As you can see, the internet (or at least the search results) are highly in favour of peanut butter. These results can change hourly as they are merely a reflection of search engine results based on the keywords you entered. You also get a random tweet based on your subject to give the results more of a real-time feel.
All in all, this is a fun little app which may be somewhat useful in finding out what the search engines think on a particular subject.
