Naked "Barbie" Doll - What Images are you Related To?

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

What  "Google Images" are you Related To?

What room is that?

I am related by a comment to a naked "Barbie" Doll image on Google.  And you?  Google your name, then look at the link for images. What images are you related to?  Anything funny?  Share a link to the images related to your name...  if you want (remember there are no follow tags in the comments.)   Or describe a funny image that matches your name. Don't be tempted to snatch an image* that is not yours.  It is probably not licensed for you to use it. You can contact the owner and get the owners permission to use the photo.

When I see Charles post "If you are squeamish about seeing Barbie naked----skip right on by to the next post!"  I think about a Barbie Doll that I vaguely remember seeing somewhere.Maureen McCabe anonymous avatar from Twitter

Google Images search for Maureen McCabe

My name is fairly common there is an artist, a nun, a financial planner and more.... Lots of the Google images when I (you?)  Google my name are graphs from market reports. Westerville Ohio homes for sale graph Or mug shots of me, that I have used as avatars.  Houses.  There are photos from things I have Re-Blogged on ActiveRain.

As I look at the Google Image Search (for my name)  a grizzly photo of a naked Barbie Doll with her legs chewed off is prominant.

I wanted to believe the Naked Barbie Doll with the legs chewed off is part of artist Maureen McCabe's legacy... she does really interesting art... but not icky art...   or could the religious Maureen McCabe be linked to that poor lost soul with no clothes or legs... maybe with a cautionary tale about...  dogs?  Barbie Dolls? Nudity?  Nope. Naked Barbie with her legs chewed off is related to me.  I commented on the Dayton Ohio real estate blog of Teri Lussier... long ago, Dog Toy Barbie.  Teri photographed the grizzly scene during the showing of a vacant home.

Charles Buell has run into more than one "Barbie" in home inspections. 

Where is naked Barbie’s head? A little pop quiz for you today.

If you are squeamish about seeing Barbie naked----skip right on by to the next post!

I see some of the grizzly home inspection images Charles shares on ActiveRain  on the Charles Buell Image Search.  The snake skeleton... Charles picture of a rat skeleton is the one that disturbs me the most.  Seeing the animal alive would scare me worse.

Google Images search for Charles Buell

Images you are related to*

Remember Google Images is just a search of images for a search term, my name, Charles name, YOUR name.  Google images are not free for the taking, they don't own the images.  Displaying images does not mean a change in ownership or licensing.  I can not use Teri's 'Dog Toy Barbie'  photograph without permission from her...

What  "Google Images" are you Related To?

In Google Image search if you click on the link it takes you to the website.  Poor Naked No Knees Barbie photo takes me to Teri's blog post and my comment. The market reports take me to ActiveRain or my Outside blogs.   I do not recognize the room above but it takes me to my website.

Poor Barbie is looking pretty rough!  I googled mine and found a dead armadillo......that was a photo I took.  Pretty interesting to look at the other photos that aren't mine.

So, googled my name first and then hit images and apparently my name is also associated with a country singer named Brenda Mullen.  So...typed in Brenda Mullen, San Antonio TX  and this is what I got.  The first few images were normal.  As you head down the page, it just gets weird :). 

There are a couple of facebook photos associated with my name, but I don't know who those people are.  Nothing really funny though. 

This is kind of cool.  I will book mark to see how everyone elses turns up :).

Maureen, great post---I often check Google images for different people's names to see what comes up---kind of a image collage of a person.  Someday somebody will come up with a way to psychoanalyze a person using their Google images collage :)

I just checked and there is some strange photos but mostly mine are in there on top. There is a photographer in AZ that also has the same name & is a wedding photographer.  Mine has dogs, real estate things but then there is this contortionist guy with hardly any clothes on ... Hmmm.  He doesn't belong to me!

Shannon is the Kermit related to you?  Or a mystery?

You may want to read over AR guidelines about promoting your business in comments.  IMHO the place for

"Looking for your Northern California Referrals:

http://www.ShannonCoe.com" is on your AR profile and your AR blog.  Even in a post where people are invited to share links that carry on conversation, that does not look conversational to me. It looks promotional.

Ann a dead armadillo would probably make me laugh... 

Brenda If you click on the faces it may help you understand or it could still be a mystery.  I clicked on a food image in your link and went to your Outside blog... and I am now hungry...

*****OK anyone have a Posterous?  Use theirs mainly for photos?  Do your photos show in a search for your name in Google images? *****

My Posterous photos do not seem to show... for "Maureen McCabe" Posterous ID's me as Maureen McCabe but I have to wonder why those photos are not in the search for my name.  Just Google weirdness.  Or Posterous weirdness?  I am sure if I look at the source I will see how the photos are tagged or something that explains their absence.  Posterous has been around long enough...

Lyn Your comment brings up a whole nother topic... contortionist guys  ... no whether the way YOU see the search is the way I see search.

Paul With the money Matel made off clothes you'd think Barbie's natural state would be fully clothed and accesorized but abandoned Barbies do seem to be naked. 

Mike J. wrote: "Great exercise to reinforce acknowledgement of the value of long tail content"  OK it can be educational or just for giggles.

Interesting suggestion, Maureen. I have never Googled my name and checked the “Images” results. I was surprised to discover that the vast majority of "Bill Burchard" images were related to me. Some were images I posted to AR. Others were images of books/articles I authored regarding AutoCAD software. There were a couple of other photos not about me... a police officer in Hopkinton, MA; a chef who owns a bistro in Tucson, AZ. Otherwise... it’s pretty much all me.

Gary Looks like Gary Waters the artist is pretty abstract, I just see a drawing of a person's head, but I just Googled Gary Waters.

I see a photo of you but I see more photos of Gary Waters the Cleveland State basketball coach.  Looks like he was a coach at Kent State too at some point.  I wonder if what I see is different than what you see.

Debbie  Is the elephant linked to you or to another Debbie Gartner?

Ann Did you really find one?

Maureen,

I am "related" to a lot of really boring stuff when I compare to CSI Barbie, but I suppose there are some skeletons in the closet somewhere.  They may giggle to themselves.

Bill There is probably some old blog post here from 2007 that told us to look at Google Images.  I don't do it all the time.  I do get traffic on my blogs from Google Images.

BlogTalk on RealTown blogs a big deal real estate blogger gave a tutorial about how to use Google images, no mention of ownership, copyright, license. 

Mike I like CSI Barbie...

Great post Maureen.  I'm always checking my images to see which of my photos pop up.  Funnily enough I noticed a photo on page 9 of Jim Hale's brother in law Don Johnson.

I just commented on Jim's tribute post last night to his recently deceased brother in law.  Interesting how that photo popped up related to my name.  The power of AR.

Jenny If I was a talented photographer like you I might look more to see what shows up in images for my name, even if it is not my name.  "Naked Barbie" is me.    That's the power of WordPress.

I see 18,000 +/ - images for Jack Mossman. 

It's 18,100... part of what interests me about this is do we both see the same search?  I see you and recognize you in the top row.  The biggest photo  I see of you in the top row is ActiveRain as is the one furthest to the right. The other is your website (?)  Next row down I find a link to you at a Market Leader account.  I can guess based on a lot of the images which ones are you and which are other Jack Mossman's. In the top row I see a photo of a soccer game and it is local for me.  Bexley Ohio, seems one of the players is named Jack Mossman.  I am going to grab a screen shot and say "fair use" if anyone believes I am violating their copyright.
