Google Pray Meta Tag

A guestbook spammer reportedly had this meta tag in his pages:

<meta name="GooglePray" content="Google, please rate me high by keyword UmaxSearch">

Don’t look for proof this’ll help, religion is all about belief. But remember: there are some questions that can’t be answered by Google.

See Random Pics

The Random Personal Picture Finder searches Google Images for random photos (potentially NSFW). Ionut Alex. Chitu explains:

For example, some Kodak cameras use this name convention: dcp#####.jpg, where ##### is replaced by a number, HP Photosmart uses IM######.jpg. Many people are too lazy to change the default file names and some of them upload the photos to their sites. Some of their sites are crawled by Google.

Become a Google Tester

You can now apply to be part of the Google User Experience Research and test unreleased Google products (and get paid for it, too – typically $75/ hour, Google says, though you might need to show up in the Googleplex). The FAQ says this does not involve “having electrodes attached to your body”... [Hat tip to Googling Google and David Hetfield in the forum.]
