Searchability

One of the funniest things to do as a blogger is to see what search terms bring people to your blog. Most of the time, they’re utterly ordinary: “kate basi blog,” for instance. But included in the mix are some real gems, and today I feel like sharing a few. In case, like me, you’re curious as to what in the world I wrote that showed up on these searches, I’ve linked you to the appropriate post.

The funny…

The things that make you go “hmmm”…

The not-so-funny…

  • rsv related to vsd (or this one) (No amount of distance can make this funny, but it’s so significant in my life that I’m just grateful when other search it, in the hopes that they find themselves not alone.)

And finally, in the category “what the…?” we have:

  • ugly pie (I don’t know what you’re talking about. In this house we only have cutie pies. 😉 )
  • alex w ness (Surely that must be a typo? Virtually every post I write has that in it.)
  • elphant mush (Where did the all-knowing Google find that on my blog?)

Okay, those of you who have blogs, what are your favorite search terms people have used to find you?

    So funny! My fav: Flamboyant coat…because we moms wear them everyday…

    Here are a couple from mine:
    “as a female endless fairy tales live happily ever after expect marriager”
    “5 car carrier truck wit sliper”
    “Is Dorian Gregory married” (Who knew my two male characters have a soap opera star named after them?)
    “recycled Christmas card bird house”
    (Insert my cousin’s name) “Facebook” (she’s a popular gal, I guess!
    “home depot” and “martha stewart” (Those things just go together!)

  2. Hahahaha! Such a brilliant idea for a post!
    I’ve shared some of the outrageous search results to my blog, but never thought to post relative links with them!
    Hehe, some simply can’t be explained, can they! 😉

    Who would Google “little kids stuck together”? LOL

  3. One of the reasons I like to look at my blog stats is to see how people got to my blog and it cracks me up at some of the things people search about to get to my blog!

    My favorite is “kate got music” – mostly because of your response: “is that the same as going postal!” LOL!
