SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a wonderful thing; a useful tool in the arsenal of any website owner, helping wayward internet browser’s find your brilliant site and all its worthwhile information. Like many bloggers, I’m curious to know what terms and phrases people use to find my site. And, like many bloggers, I never cease to be amazed at what people are actually looking for…and why that search would point to me. Anywhoooo….
As you’d expect, some phrases are obvious:
“Spiritual Drift” is #4. Along with…
“spiritual quotes” at #6 and,
“spiritual drifting” #7.
I used a Francis Chan quote one time (one time!) for a Photo Friday piece and “Francis Chan quotes” rose to #2.
“How to piss off a Christian” is my #1 term (well, okay, #1 AND [as “Christians”], #3). I’m so, um, proud. Go ahead, Google the phrase, I’ll wait…..see, I’m the number one result! Infamy! Yay, me….I guess. (Actually, throughout my search terms, there’s variations of this theme a half a dozen times or more. That’s a LOT to be pissed off about!)
Now, “worst bikini bodies” (#10) throws me a little.
As does, “man’s hand and baby legs” (#22). I don’t even want to KNOW what they were actually looking for.
“Dear god im (sic) miserable” (#33) got several returns, so I’m actually kind of glad they did find me. Hope I helped.
Farther down the list . . .“Baby talking in cell phone”
“What are the diseases and imperfections of Christians”
…not sure if that’s a legitimate search or a variation on the “how to piss off a Christian” theme…
“You are not defined by your past, you are prepared by your past”
…don’t know what they were looking for, but that’s a great quote in itself.
“What to do for your significant when you’re sorry”
…Well, you’re on the right path. I don’t know why it led to me, but I’m glad to know you’re trying!
“How does stepping on graves piss off the devil”
…huh?? There’s some imagery for ya!
And my personal favorite, “odds you exist”.
I wonder what they are. More importantly I wonder if the searcher ever resolved the issue, and if I helped in any way. Maybe, just maybe, I was the one site that finally confirmed it for him!
Wow . . .
