Hits From the Google

A blog buddy of mine, Grant Miller Media, has done some funny posts about which web searches are leading to hits to his site, and it got me curious about what people are looking for when they find my site, apparently ranked number 12,440,042 most popular in the free world!

Here are the top ten . . .

10. I Guess I Didn't Know. People are still searching for that song?

9. What are important good son and daughter What an odd search. If you have to search the web to find out if you're a good son, odds are you're not.

8. Try the Veal. Are people searching to see who said that, only to find that it's just a general phrase that comedians would say, and now people trying unsuccessfully to be funny say it? What comedy clubs served veal, anyway?

7. Edward 40's Hands. Yes! It's comforting to know that this awful drinking game sure to make people puke is bringing folks to my site.

6. Tour De Franzia So, this slightly classier (?) drinking game appears to be slightly edging out the former one, at least among the eleven people who come to my page a week.

5. Urban Sombrero. People looking for information on the Seinfeld episode with this apparel were not likely to find what they were looking for in this now embarrassing to me, slightly misogynist post.

4. Text in Blankets. This is the only one where I wasn't sure which post of mine it was meant for, and it turns out it's the one where I bitch about people sending blanket text messages on holidays. It must be one of those things that pisses people off but there's not much on the web about it.

3. Who said crappola Apparently I've used the word crappola in three different posts, making me a decent answer for 'who said crappola?'

2. Gancers. What's odd is that the plural form of Gancer has never been used on here, yet it still comes in at number two, somehow.

1. Jeff Galuli. The people who searched the most for my site were looking for Jeff Gillooly, only I spelled the name wrong in the comments section of this post I did years ago. I'm thinking that this was just some guy named Jeff Galuli who searched his own name a few times, wondering why people laughed and thought of crowbars and ice skaters when they heard his name.

Also, before I forget, Beck Eye over at The Pop Eye was the winner of my caption contest, and because I'm broke and can't afford to give a good prize, I told her I would give a plug to her site. She does an awesome job updating regularly, and she has an insane knowledge of pop culture and today's music. Also we recently figured out that we are both unpaid writers for Starpulse.com. There, Beck Eye, that should get you eleven more hits on your site this month.

This is great. I looked at my list and it isn't nearly as impressive, but mine did include, www.iwantbigrims.com.

And now, so does yours.

HeatherLynn said...

crap, i can't play along with this one since i have my blog set NOT to show up in google searches....or any other searches for that matter.

Before though, it would always pop up for a blog I wrote about Wetzel, which is a motorcycle party...full of sinful things and leather clad, awesome dirty biker activity....for instance the "skin to win" contest. First one I'd ever seen! lets just say, it's an eye opening experience.

so, "www.iwantbigrims.com" huh...we should all be found through that one! lol

Jenni: I want big rims? I hope they're talking about wheels . . .

Lynn: You got me curious about Wetzel, like if it was named after a guy named Wetzel because he doesn't sound like a biker. Also, is there a Wetzel Pretzel?

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Nice. I love how this whole"google hits" concept works.

I also like how you understand your own special brand of crazy.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Dandy: Yeah, I think I have a pretty good handle on my crazy and how to use it for good instead of evil.

HeatherLynn said...

DKN ~ here's the website to the club. {http://www.wetzelmc.com/gallery.asp}

be sure to visit the website for Wetzel Motorcyle Club, there's lots to read and see! lol

I feel like I read your post about it or I'm having DeJaVoodoo.

Ms Smack said...

I also keep an eye on my google searches and the phrases that led people to my blog.

Some of them are illegal and perverted so I track and report to their local police station...but most of them are harmless enough.

A high percentage of them are boob-related because of my annual boob competition.

BeckEye said...

Um...I get paid for stuff I write at Starpulse. Not everything, but I do get something. They don't pay you?

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Smack: Yes, boob related. I like saying boob related.

Beck: What the F? I wrote darn good stuff for them and never got a penny. Oh well. My time will come . . .

Grant Miller said...

People still search for Jeff Galuli or Gillooly???

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Grant: Gone but not forgotten.
