Search engine terms

by Gina

When I blogged at Knitter on Skates, I had a vested interest in the search engine terms that generated hits. It was my way of knowing what people were interested in. Now that I have a new blog and a new outlook, I still check the search engine terms that lead people to what I write. It’s different now, though. I’m not going to put too much focus on the terms that generate traffic, but I’ll enjoy reading them.

There were two within the past week that stroked my humor glands. They were:

  • weird way thinking
  • I try to be good, but I get bored

That last one makes sense. It is the exact title of one of my blog posts. That alone took some of the humor out of it, but I’m still glad that I can be found by that term/phrase. It boosts my non-conformist ego.

“weird way thinking” surprised me. It’s very appropriate, though. I do have a weird way of thinking, and I’m slowly trying to incorporate that into my blog. I don’t think I’ve been successful at it yet, but now I have confirmation that I’m on the right path. Out of curiosity, I attempted to find my blog via Google using that exact keyword combination. It wasn’t on the first two results pages. I gave up the search. But someone did find me that way, and that’s a step in the right direction.

(While we’re on the subject of blog traffic: What’s a girl gotta do to get a comment around here? 92 visitors for 13 published posts, and not a single comment! What gives? Feel free to say hello next time you stop by. I love comments)
