Welcome to Part 3 of “How Are People Finding Me” Every once in a while I dig around in my stats to find out what search terms people are using to find me. The results intrigue me and sometimes scare me a bit as well. Sometimes I can figure out what post would have popped up on their search, other times I really have no clue how they landed in my little corner of the internet. Let’s get started shall we?
My first result is the post popular search term for the past week. “What to do with my empty cigarette packs” Most people just throw them away. However, I’m going to guess that this was the post they found: Purse Porn, a post showing my purse made of cigarette wrappers. That was easy! I hope they are all this easy to figure out.
Let’s move on to the past 3o days, shall we? This one made me wonder who on earth is actual looking for this and knows the proper term for it. Not 1 but 3 people used this term: “testrone radium energizer” (spelling was the search term, not mine) I’m going to guess that they landed on my “Vita Radium Suppositories” Wordless Wednesday. Really, who wouldn’t want to know about radium suppositories? I’m so glad I was able to help. An interesting tidbit: Vita Radium Suppositories was searched 39 times over the life of my blog.
In the past quarter, “Birthday Cards For Husband” was the winner. I bet people were disappointed that I didn’t have images of cute cards you could download for your husband. Nor do I have a list of fun wording ideas to make your husband a birthday card. It’s just a whiny post about my first time buying a birthday card for my husband.
Over the course of a year, the most popular term was, “Where Is My Bra?” The question comes to mind, why? If you are really missing your bra, do you think the internet can help you find it? I hope my post about my lost bra gave them something to chuckle about until they found their own. I don’t have a lost bra crystal ball on my blog.
The most popular term over the entire life of my blog is “pink ribbon” I had posted a picture of a pink ribbon when I blogged about my best friend, Michele, finding out she had breast cancer. “A Club We Don’t Want to Belong to” was a very hard post to write. Thankfully, she is cancer free and doing well.
As long as we are poking in the search terms, let’s grab some random ones over the course of my blog. This will be fun! If you could see the disturbed folks who show up on my blog, you would be scared. Why should I be the only one to have all this fun?
In no particular order, just because they amused me or startled me:
Just the word, “Huh” I’m going to guess it led to “How Two Adults Can Kill an Hour“ Why would you look for just the word Huh? Huh? Tell me why?
Kawana Fruit was searched 15 times. If people were hoping that I could tell them how to eat them or cook them or what to do with the, they were wrong. They would have found “Kawana and Random Act of Kindness.”
If you have a “rubber fetish” I had just the post for you.
I’m not the only person who thinks, “I Want to Be a Fairy.” There are others who are looking for “Fat Fairy.”
I think my favorite term was “How to Entertain an Engineer“ Mr. Bernie has a Masters in Engineering. So the fact that I was able to help somebody else who wanted to entertain their Engineer, made me happy. I’m a giver.
For my readers who have a blog, what is the oddest search term that has shown up in your Site Stats? If you have never peeked at your site stats, you might be surprised.
