So I’m kind of analyzing my traffic. I always find it interesting to see what people are looking for and how they end up here in my spot.
I’ve done this before, and frankly, the results were disturbing. I understand that my content is what is driving the results and thrusting you good people at me. But seriously, “black booger in child?” Really? I mentioned that like one time. Can we just let it go?
And for another thing, why are people running searches on black boogers in children?
What exactly is it that you want to know about a black booger?
For the life of me I can’t figure that out.
Moving right along…
So. (If I had a drum, you’d be gettin’ a roll right now…) Here are the top five results of my latest search engine terms:
–no small thing (well okay, that one makes sense. Does this mean that people are actually looking for me?!)
–dirty socks (it’s still there. I will never outrun it, I guess.)
–language sample (Okay, again, this one makes sense. Good. On the right track.)
–barbie, or some variation of it, including naked barbie, barbie parts, barbie heads and barbies without heads. Oh, and let’s not forget ‘disfigured barbie’. You people are sick. (And all because of one, albeit one entertaining, photo).
–freckles. (Because I love freckles.)
So what have I learned from this?
Well, it seems the level of sophistication of my reader pool is not so much improving as it is shifting. Shifting from physically gross (no offense to those of you with the black boogers or the sweaty socks), to downright creepy.
And that perhaps–just perhaps– I may want to adjust my blog fodder. Like, no more booger talk.
And a question arises. Why are so many people searching “dirty socks?” I mean, it’s number two on my all time search terms.
So people are looking for dirty socks.
Well, maybe not dirty socks, per se…
Are y’all trying to figure out how to wash them? If so, soak ’em in a little borax and cold water, then normal wash. Problem solved.
Oh, and whoever you are out there looking for “punishment with socks,” I think you need to seek help. That just doesn’t sound good, on any level.
