I came across this great blog post yesterday, discussing the bizarre and wonderful search terms that had led readers to that particular blog. Needless to say, it was not long before I was investigating the search engine referrals on my own blog and having a good old giggle and raising a few eyebrows at the search terms that were bringing people to storytelling nomad.
So, what brings you here, dearest bloggers? Apparently Google logos are as interesting to you as they are to me, because that search comes in at number one, generating a number of hits every day. Wallpaper background is another top hit, although I think I only mentioned it once and I don’t think I was very interesting about it. Sorry about that. A few people have actually searched for storytelling nomad which just brings a smile to my face. I love you, anonymous internet fans!
But what have been some of the more peculiar searches. Here I list the top 10, in no particular order:
- what does it take to make people go on quotes
You would think this is pretty self explanatory. A good quote makes people go on quotes. Also, there are none on my blog so I’m sorry to have disappointed you.
- happy cowgirl
I hope you, erm, found what you were looking for Woody.
- very old positive lady; my nanna; creepy old women; attractive old lady photo
There are soooo many search terms about old women, presumably leading to my inner nanna post. I picked out a few of the best. Firstly, I’m glad that someone searched for a ‘positive’ old lady, as opposed to the negative, grouchy ones that so often plague us? No, I’m pretty sure your nanna won’t turn up if you Google ‘my nanna’. Creepy old women…plural?? And an attractive old lady photo. Look mister, you need to get out more. Seriously.
- if you came to 2 doors ,one is good other is bad and they look the same what question will you ask
I would ask which one would lead you to better grammar and punctuation. Or, depending on your preference towards good or evil, you could just ask which one is, you know, good or evil? Or for better signage? Come on man, you Googled this?
- do u love me wallpaper
No, wallpaper doesn’t love you. Also, wallpaper is inanimate and incapable of love.
- ‘inception’ was masterpiece
*Giggles*. This person was probably unimpressed with my stance on this commonly thrown around statement. Find out more here. #itreallywasnt
- spiritually connected to animals
I’m sure you are, no really.
- hell of my own making text
Please don’t hurt me.
- if i am a tree in autumn
Then I am the sky in summer. Hippie love.
- if you tell the truth you don’t need a good memory
I think you might be on to something here… Those of us with bad memories, there is hope for us yet!
Okay, so your turn. What’s the best/craziest/creepiest/weirdest most unrelated term that someone has searched for to get to your blog?
