So today I was thinking what I could write my next article about and just as I was about to google stuff for inspiration I had a thought, people Google questions every day so why don’t I find the most popular and try and answer them without cheating by checking for the answers. Let me know how many I get right.
So here goes, please don’t use this for the actual answers as I may not (well prob wont) know the right ones.
At No 1 with 3,350,000 searches we have what is my ip?
I actually work in IT, so this is a good start for me. You can find your IP by selecting your Wi-Fi/Ethernet connection from the taskbar and clicking properties. Its your IPv4 address.

No 4. How to tie a tie?
Like the 673,000 people who googled this i dunno exactly how as i haven’t done this in years but it’s something like you make one side shorter than the other then the longer side you put across and behind the shorter side. You then put the shorter side thro the space at the top and tuck it in the wrapped round bit then pull. (I don’t think this is right)
No 5. This question baffled me 550,000 people searched, can you run it?
