Search terms…. they matter

One of my favorite features of WordPress blogging is that you can see how people arrived at your blog, in the event that they did so by accident–As in, what they Googled to lead them to your site. Sometimes these terms make me realize that other people are concerned about the same issues I am, especially when their search terms are the exact title of one of my posts. It makes me wonder what they were really looking for when they found me. Or did they stop and stay awhile? And sometimes I am flattered that the search terms were an obvious attempt to find my blog, when they search “dramafreemama blog!” I’m like Heee-eeey, glad ya heard of me! <wink wink> But sometimes these search terms make me laugh and think how on earth did THAT bring them to dramafreemama?

Scary right?

The following is a list of some of my favorite (or most often used) search terms that lead readers to this blog. I have linked them to the post I suspect the searcher landed on with these terms, although some of them, I truly have NO IDEA!

“THIS IS A TEST” — More than 145 people have arrived at this blog by searching “this is a test” or “this is only a test.” I suspect it is due to a controversial post about standardized testing in the public school system.

“FUNNY THINGS PEOPLE SAY” — 85 people have arrived here by these terms. I published a post back in march by this exact name!

“EN LOCO PARENTIS”— 42 people have arrived here by these terms. I wrote a post by this title toward the end of the school year. It got 20 Facebook shares!

“LITTLE WAYNE IN UNDERPANTS” — This is probably my favorite search term to date, and the reason I wanted to write this post. It likely led the searcher to this post, where I warn Zachary never to wear his pants so that his underpants show. Or maybe this one–a snarky little gem where Lil Wayne is referenced.

“SKANKY SUZY”— I know what you’re thinking– What kind of blog IS THIS?? But I actually knew exactly why these terms led someone to me! It was a post about buying dolls in the new age.

“NUTELLA BAD ASS”— I feel like my Pinterest post is probably to blame for this one. Or my husband’s EPIC Mother’s Day FAIL.

“SLICED CHEESE”— yes please! This probably led the innocent, unexpecting searcher to my irate rant about generic cheese.

“SLUTTY RUBBER DUCK”— The only time I can remember referencing a rubber duck, I don’t recall it being a slutty one. I simply HATE slutty ducks… But this post may have been the culprit.

“GUMMI RUBBER BOOTS GAY FARMER”— WTF? I’m not sure how this happened… But I’m glad it did. Made my day.  <MEMO- don’t google this, unless you’re into some weird shit.>

“BABY GO TO HELL” — No seriously, baby, go to hell.

“TELL ME KITTY” — odd and random.

“I’M AFRAID OF BEING ENVIED”— Well aren’t we all??

Well that about sums up my favorites! I am not sure what this says about my blog <YIKES!>– but I enjoy seeing every day what brings folks to me. And I am grateful for each and every visitor, whether it was accidental (hopefully the farmer thing) or intentional.

Lots of love,

dramafreemama

AHHHHHH.
