I always find it interesting to see how people end up at my weblog. One nice feature of WordPress is that they list the search terms people use to find this site (if those keywords are contained within the URL). Don’t worry: there isn’t any identifying information attached to them. I have no idea if the user using a particular search viewed more than one page, what pages he viewed, where he is located, and so forth. I just get a list of search terms.
Here are some of the more interesting terms people have used to find my weblog:
I wonder how they ended up here…I mean, polonium is such a naturally funny topic that there must be an abundance of polonium humor sites…
“message Al Gore is attempting to convey”
I should hope this searcher hasn’t already seen the movie and is still wondering what the message is.
“machines to help infants learn to walk”
Are there such things? I’m not sure what the searcher had in mind, but it’s the kind of thing I might write about.
“dr anderson solved the division of zero”
No he didn’t!
“puddle waking up”
What? I have no idea what the searcher was hoping to find. What would one write about a puddle waking up? And what’s even more mysterious is how this search led him here—I don’t even recall ever writing about puddles, and a search of my own weblog didn’t reveal it.
“how to administer Polonium 210”
Aw, come one now! Who wants to know? I don’t run that kind of place!
