Searches are up for the term “reqruented” after reports that:
‘Todd Palin reqruented a massage therapist now busted for “prostitution”.’
The sex scandal was first published by the ENQUIRER, a ‘tabloid’ that broke the John Edwards affair. But this post is not really about the Palins or the scandalous accusations but about the term ‘reqruented’ and it’s use (or lack-there-of) in the English language.
Even on Google, when you do a search for “reqruented -palin” a paltry 14 results are returned. As might be suspected, a good portion of the results are legal in nature indicating that it is more of a legal-term.[caption id="attachment_77" align="aligncenter" width="392" caption="Google search results for 'reqruented'."][/caption]
The domainer in me briefly toyed with the idea of registering reqruent.com (which, as of this posting, DomainTools is showing as still available) but I decided not to. My main interest in the term is as a search marketer and the fascination by the search trends that can be generated by a breaking news story that includes such a rare and seldom used word.
That, and I wonder if my wife will let me get away with using ‘reqruent’ in our next Scrabble game.
