Blogstuff – Search Engine Terms

Every now and then I look at the search engine terms people use to get to my blog, and some of them are priceless, so I’ve decided to keep track of them. Yes, I stole this idea off someone though I can’t recall who. I’m thinking maybe TAGN? Anyway it’s an homage, not outright plagiarism.

(And then I found the handy-dandy link that lets you see all the search terms for your blog, evar. If you don’t hear from me inside 2 weeks, someone come rescue me.)

In no particular order:

  • great old ones (my fave, with about 7 different entries including THE great old ones, lovecraft, cthulhu great old ones, etc.)
  • ysharros (no shock there)
  • boss don’t ever leave me in charge again
  • ack i’ve gone to look for myself
  • getting old
  • surprise cannibalism (this is a pretty high-up result. I’m wondering what I ever wrote to lead to this… mmmm BRAINZZZZZ)
  • thoughtless people suck (my mantra!)
  • do want (my other mantra)
  • marmite (4th all-time search term leading here. That’s several thousand irritated searchers…)
  • hungover
  • captain hindsight
  • group hug
  • persistence of time
  • nothing
  • very tired
  • صور خيالية  (if you can read this, do let me know what it says – according to Google translate, it’s “fantasy”. I’m disappointed)
  • kindness (awww)
  • internet addict (shaddap!)
  • katana woman (I am slicey, hear me rawr!)
  • The Beatles’ Happy Birthday (only about a million times… I guess I used a picture?)
  • no
  • not tonight Josephine
  • various Iain M Banks & Culture search variants (from a single post, years ago, IIRC)
  • animaux cute (Well ‘ello my British chums!)
  • stop posting shit

Guess I’d better follow that last piece of advice…

    It is part of my month in review post usually, but I am sure I stole it from somebody else. One of my favorite variations is The Road to Popehat over at popehat.com. But their topics lead to some interesting searches.

    From your list, I particularly like “surprise cannibalism,” but cannot figure out if the surprise came to those eating (guess what’s in the stew!) or the person being eaten (wait, are you eating me?).

      That surprise cannibalism is definitely a winner. I’m still trying to figure it out too.

    Most of mine are pretty sane, but my favorite so far is “things that make you dizzy.”

    I think it was Lum who originally did the search terms, at least among the MMO bloggers.

    Most of mine are too boring to post. :/
