Ok so I totally stole this from Vomit Comet and their feature they call “You are here?“. Basically, they have a tracker on their site and it allows them to see what search terms people have used that land them on their page. I really thought that was a cool idea, but hadn’t really looked into it, until I read another blog by a woman who got a tracker and saw that some really creepy search terms were landing people on her blog. I’m not linking to her, because she’s thinking about going private because of these searches. Her reason for doing the tracker though, prompted me to do it even more than for the fun factor. Luckily, I haven’t gotten creepy searches yet, but I have gotten a few fun ones. I saved them until I had enough for a post.
Originally I was going to call it “landing strip” because well, people landed here. But then I thought, hmmm, that might sound like a certain name for a region of hair in the nether areas hahah! So, I decided on “they landed here”. So, here are the ones I’ve saved:
27 Jan www.google.co.uk “in the centre of the roof”
*This search comes up a lot. I know it’s a good way to find me, but bookmarking works well too. That might help?
27 Jan blogsearch.google.com Starbucks VIA OR Instant
*Yummm. I don’t think they stayed around long enough to find out I like it.
27 Jan search.aol.com song with Roof in the title
*This was my first funny search. And for days I was singing, “the roof, the roof, the roof is on fire”
5 Feb blogsearch.google.com O and M training blind
*I put way too much thought into this. Either it’s a blink looking for other blinks doing O & M or it’s a sightie maybe thinking about a career in O & M training and maybe they know they’ll have to go under blindfold.
10 Feb www.google.com daryl guide dog blog
*This one cracked me up today. I wonder if they were looking for Darrell and Egypt, or a guide dog named Darrell.
11 Feb www.google.at wow tissues
*Huh? This one is cracking me up yet again. Hmmm. Alrighty then. What kind of tissues were they looking for? They sound really wow.
It may look like I’m spying on my readers, and I guess I kind of am. But it doesn’t tell you who they are or anything. And I think it’s good to watch for creepy searches. I gotta tell you that Vomit Comet gets much, much funnier ones, because they’ve been around a long time, so if you need a laugh, go check it out. The link is at the top of this post.
