The one result with the highest page count in Google, you’ll grow again – until you’re either satisfied with the word, or you don’t get any more results for it. The seed in our example, “bo,” has the most result pages for “box.” Of course... that’s a common word. “Bob” is also quite popular because it’s a name. (Other combinations, like “boz,” are much less popular.) Now you continue with “box.” The most popular continuation here is “boxe,” probably because it means “box” in French. “Boxe” continues to grow into “Boxer,” and I’m satisfied with this result so I won’t grow it again. The seed word, bo, has grown into a boxer.

Similarly, “g” turns into “good,” “h” into “have,” and “my” into “myself.” The letter “a” turns into the more cryptic “attori.”

You can also grow numbers. For example, a 1 grows into a 100000. 1900 grows into 190000. 55 to 5500. If you use 194 as seed number, you can grow it to 1945 – the year World War II ended.
