July’s results


I’m just going over my blog stats from July and, as always, read the search engine results with great interest. My stats, you see, list the various words or phrases which people plugged into a search engine that then brought them to my site.
What astounds me is the number of people searching for “www.incorrigiblenightowl.com”. Okay….correct me if I’m missing something blatantly obvious, but if you know the entire URL of the site, why do you need to Google it? Couldn’t you just plug the URL into your browser and come straight here? I keep thinking it must have something to do with cookies or trackbacks or spam or something. I had 23 searches for my URL last month. Surely there can’t be that many people who just do not get the concept.
Another confusing thing is that one of the searched phrases was “may i just take a moment to say how much i adore the band on the run album? thanks. i feel better now.” This is a post from my Beatleblog, in its entirety, and verbatim, at that. Now, I sincerely doubt that someone read the post and remembered it, word-for-word, when they couldn’t even remember where they’d seen it. And it’s too random a collection of words for someone to have matched accidentally. So what gives, there? More spam activity, perhaps?
My favorite search string for last month, though, has to be “breast suction in s&m”. Um…wow. I am racking my brain trying to figure out which combination of my posts yielded a match on that one. One thing I can guarantee is that those three words definitely did not appear together when I posted them!

By the way…..um, hello? Is anyone even still reading this blog? It got really quiet in here, really quickly. Not that I’m comment-whoring, but, criminy. The pictures didn’t even get any responses and those are usually good for a handful of comments. I’ve actually been posting more lately but all my readers seem to have dropped off the planet. Weird.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Rarely does my day start without breakfast and my morning read of the internet’s “Incorrigible NightOwl” blog and website. It’s a must-read, as far as I’m concerned.
    For those of us without a life, it’s gratifying to vicariously live life through another’s…yours.
    Thanks, Incorrigible NightOwl.

  2. Well, you know I always read it. I love the way you phrase things! As for the s&m, we’ll discuss this the next time we chat! 😉

  3. Ben doesn’t know how to type in a URL; he Googles everything. I get a lot of hits from people Googling suburbanhippie.com, just like you.
    Problem is, I don’t really know who these people are.
