WordPress comes with a handy little feature that shows you what search terms have been used that directed people to one’s blog. Most of my readers are people I know or other bloggers who happened upon the blog via tags. I believe there is an in depth process of using key words and what not to drive readers to one’s blog. In case you’re wondering, I have no idea what that process is. I’m proud to say that in the nine months since I began blogging, I’ve hit 1,000 total views! I know, there are probably bloggers out there who manage that in a single day. I’m not sure the antics of my critter horde or witty commentary by the three kiddos really rates that kind of attention. We just aren’t ready for that kind of paparazzi. How would I explain the pictures of Miss Drama streaking through the house? What if they snapped incriminating photos of Mr. Smarty-pants and Miss Diva using duct-tape to tie up their sister? Sadly, I must admit I have photographic evidence of this. Considering my children may one day hold the power of life and death decisions in my old age, I’ll be kind and withhold the damning photos, especially since Miss Drama seemed to enjoy being duct-taped to a file cabinet.
Since I’ve yet to invite, by cleverly inserting special words that all the search engines snatch for their little searches, the hordes of people dying to hear my every word, I wondered if anyone had landed on my blog via a search. It turns out, not many. Some search engines it seems have not yet sold out to the Google advertising machine, and do not share their info, thus the “Unknown terms”. I thought everyone used Google.
All but one search make sense, as the words appear in at least one blog, or handily, in the title. I’m still wondering how on earth that one landed on my blog and why anyone would search it. I probably shouldn’t ask those kinds of questions. My brain might melt. Further, I suspect I should tell my friend, whose name I took out, that her doppelganger is hanging out with a shifty, although supposedly “sex exy” and “hot” guy named Johnny.
