Our blog has never brought in an impressive amount of search engine traffic (can anybody tell me why?) but the search terms that do bring visitors are always good for a few chuckles.
Here are a few that caught my eye when I reviewed my stats just now while working on another project:
How to fit a family of 7 in 2000 square feet – Really? Maybe that was a typo: How to find a family of 7 in 2000 square feet, because I’m telling ya: we would be lost in that much space!
How to fit 6 people in a 3 bedroom house – I read this aloud and my kids stared blankly at me. “Um…2 in each room? Someone really needed Google to tell them that?”
monthly grocery list for 300 – And I thought shopping once a month was a big job back when there were only 9 of us…
llama, llama red pajama activities – I’d really like to know what Google was thinking. I’m reasonably sure I have never owned or blogged about red pajamas or llamas or any combination thereof or activities therein.
entertaining guests in small homes space – Well, acrobatics are out, but tap dancing or a mime act works well in a small space.
whyred ina shoe – whuuu?
labeling shelves in panrty – For starters I recommend avoiding typos, because that would drive me nuts on a label every time I lookd at it. Also, I have to assume that I spelled pantry that way at least once since Google saw fit to send the searcher my way.
how to take out a toilet tank – would you believe that post sends me more search engine traffic than any other single post on my whole blog? I’m in the top 10 on Google for how to remove your toilet tank, or nearly any other way of asking the question.
swelling during pregnancy indicates boy – Really? Because my belly *always* swells. I thought swelling during pregnancy indicated pregnancy.
swollten ankles pregnant boy or girl? – So far, every person I’ve met who experienced swollen ankles during pregnancy was a girl.
And all that was just in the last 2 days. Who thinks I should do this more often? What brings visitors to your blog?
