One of my favorite features of any blog page I've seen is over at Nabbalicious.com (she's her own DOT.COM now!) For each day of the week, she has her "Favorite Search Engine Hits."
Recently, as I've been tracking site traffic, I've noticed a lot of referrals from search engines to my site. Most of them happen to pick up on something mediocre that I've posted about ("I need to lose weight", "who is Bai Ling," etc.). Some are scarier ("I want shirtless photos of Carmine Gotti Agnello"). Of course, since the searchers aren't using advanced search options, their collections of search terms get them to my page... even though I don't have shirtless photos of Carmine. Thank God.
I came across one yesterday that was just nasty. The search terms appeared as this:
milky pee what's wrong
... and that led the searcher to me. Ewww. I'm hoping that he/she had a nice laugh at my postings and then found the desired information elsewhere. If you're that person and reading this now, you should go see a doctor. No... really.
The other cool thing about tracking hits is finding all the referrals that come from all of YOUR sites. The whole community feeling around here is amazing. I can honestly say that I learn a lot by reading all of you-- it goes beyond mere entertainment, really. So, yay YOU! *big, sappy, smiley grin*
Finally (yes, this is going somewhere), I believe that I will end the next few posts with some completely random mix of terms... just to see who'll stop by next. Yep. I'm just quirky that way. Actually, it's just interesting to see what people are out there searching for...
Random terms for today: Brazil, watermelon, recipe, Hugh Jackman (okay, that's not random... I just love him), Skilling
