Archive for the ‘search engine terms’ tag
Occasionally I’ll take a look at the search engine terms (what people input into say, a Google search bar) that first-time visitors use to find my site, producing a range of informative to downright confusing views into the intents of readers. These search phrases can be as puzzling as floccinaucinihilipilification photographers or how to have a story for every occasion (I certainly don’t).
Plenty of people looking for cool maps or charts, and travel-related searches are common as well: mind map for london; time value of money chart; garbage manila bay; how to buy standing room tickets on ktx; map of states that florida’s coastline runs through (?).
And many references to Modernist literature, and the “aesthetics of ___ ” searches abound.
Then there are the accidentally poetic: turn a factory into a home; prison money card; young buddhist let go.
If you have a WordPress blog, you can find these search engine terms – the most recent and the most frequently used – in the Stats area of your blog dashboard.
