Half-yearly obscure google searches and blog stats

Can you believe 2011 is half over?! I can't.

Given this milestone, I though it would be a good time to look at my 2011 blog stats and most random google searches.

I'll start with the Top 10 most random google searches that lead people to my blog in 2011...
"my entire life is up in the air"
That sounds stressful. I'm unsure about how you thought google could help you with this. Maybe you feel better now that you’ve confessed that to google?

"what do i want for my birthday?"
This proves that google has eliminated the ability of people to think for themselves. Try this… Go on and click around. If you see something you like but don’t have, you can ask for that for your birthday. You’re welcome.

"my dog comes to the bedroom only at night"
Sounds like a question that could be better answered by Caesar Millan. Caesar, any thoughts on this one?

"do we engrave the door knocker with the year we got married?"
Sure! Really the door knocker engraving possibilities are endless. But I’d recommend against just picking a random year to engrave because then people will forever be asking you something like “what happened in 1991?” and that will get annoying quickly.

"where did the hand on hip pose come from?"
I’m not sure if “came” from anywhere. Putting your hand on your hip is rather intuitive and natural. Try it, you’ll see.

"broke both my arms same time."
Jeez louise, how are you even typing? Go the ER already.

"wedding blues support group"
If you’re feeling sad about getting married you don’t need a support group, you need to not get married. Simple.

"I don't like name tessa"
I’m sorry. I kinda like it. I wonder if Tessa was the “mean girl” of your high school? Again, why would you google that? Are you looking for some Tessa-hating chatboard?

"battle star gallactica wedding dresses"
Oh good gracious, I don’t even want to begin to imagine the geekery of a battlestar gallactica themed wedding. I shall probably have nightmares tonight.

"newlywed next store"
It’s newlyweds next DOOR. Not STORE.

Wow, you have a lot of funny google searches! Most of mine actually make sense like "Mrseyecansee" or "worth the squeeze" Recently some did search "big vag" That made me laugh!

Seeing how people come to the blogs are the best. That's one of the main reasons why I love google analytics.

Shoshanah said...

Yeah for being in the top 10 referred blogs!

And as the breaking both your arms at the same time.... yeah not so fun... especially when its at your friend's birthday party at Knotts Berry Farm. And it's in June, so you can't swim the entire summer. Not fun at all!

Jessica @ Acting Adult said...

What a fun post! I think seeing how people come to your site is always so funny. What kind of answers do they expect Google to give them?

Denise said...

I snorted. Out loud.
