I think WordPress should create a widgit that allows you to display the search engine terms people entered to find your blog. Reading those is one of the highlights of my day. Perhaps that doesn’t say much about my days, but it’s still funny as hell. By far stripper name, self-hatred and vagina get people here the most. Hennessey gets folks here a lot too. But check these out:
- toothpaste enema
- Haitians eat cat
- I hate dental hygiene
If my search terms list defined me and my blog one could reasonably expect that I’d be a Hennessey-drinking stripper who loves her vagina (but not Haitian food) and hates to brush her teeth, since toothpaste is, after all, for colon cleansing. Maybe I’ll put that in my About Lex section. Makes me wonder what people’s first impressions are since those who come in from a search engine can jump in anywhere in my 2 years worth of posts.
A friend I hadn’t told about my blog found me yesterday while doing a google search on divorce. That was sweet. She’s the second person I know in real life to find me on their own. The first was a friend I’d lost touch with who googled his name and came across something I said in my comments about a nickname he’d given me in elementary school. The statement was actually, “Damn you and His First and Last Name.” He thought it was pretty funny, but I guess I shouldn’t use folks’ real names here just in case potential employers are googling them. Did you know employers do that? We used to do it all the time. You learn so much about some people from their Myspace pages (hee hee).
Anyway. This whole search words thing tickles me so will those of you who know tell me how people get to your pages?? Even you lurkers. Come out, come out where ever your are?!?!?
