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.
