WordPress has some lovely features regarding tracking the statistics of who’s reading your blog. Of course it’s rather egotistical of me to enjoy seeing how many people are reading my blog, but that’s ok with me. Although I do this because I enjoy it, I’m not the kind of writer who writes just to write. I want to be loved. Adored. Given accolades.
Part of the tracking includes what search terms users entered to arrive at one’s page. It’s highly interesting.
For instance, “super troopers” is the #1 search term used (I wrote a post about the “meow” game in the movie, it’s a cinematic masterpiece). Interesting mostly because this is a blog about cats, and I get the most hits from a (hilariously amazing) movie about blundering state troopers battling corrupt cops transporting pot with only one tiny scene involving the word “meow” which technically doesn’t even mention the word “cat.” This probably means my SEO skills need work (I’m working on it). Case in point, the second highest search term is “super troopers meow.” At least I know the people visiting my page have excellent taste in humor.
#3: meow puns. NOW we’re talking. In case you didn’t notice the name of my blog, it’s a pun. Punny!
Then there’s a bunch of variations of the above, plus a bunch of other cat-related things.
Now, I’m sure if someone looks into MY search term history, it would also be interesting. I like random things and I like looking them up. You never know what combination of words is going to get you to the destination you desire. But looking at the list of terms used by others, I feel fairly normal.
One person, obviously someone after my own heart, typed in “i dont wanna taco bout it im not kitten right now.” Love it. Don’t know what they expected to find with that. I should search that myself.
“which black panther like house cat hisses like a snake and meows like a child?” – God, I REALLY need to search these things myself. That’s gonna have to be my next in-depth blog.
“meow twitter fantasy football” – it’s entirely possible that I used that same search term trying to think of funny names for my fantasy football teams.
There’s a bazillion more interesting terms, but this is enough for today. If you’re reading this and you’re also a blogger who looks at their search term summary, please feel free to share YOUR oddest ones. I would love to hear them.
