The Post-Christmas Keyword Stats


I figured I’d share one of those occasional keyword search lists to give you an idea of what a lot of people were looking for when they managed to land here at Patrick’s Place.

I couldn’t understand why the post I did about South Carolina’s paltry state Christmas tree was listed at the bottom of the page as having received so many views.&nbsp  (I note that the view counter is only correct in that it counts views of all posts since the counter was installed; there’s no way to make it count retroactively, unfortunately.)

Now, I understand!

1. charlie brown christmas tree clip art — Sorry, folks, no clipart available here.&nbsp  There wasn’t even a Charlie Brown image in that particular post.&nbsp  Bet that was frustrating!

2. weird christmas movies — I guess people like offbeat Christmas films.

3. strange christmas movies — Wow.&nbsp  I guess people really, really like offbeat Christmas films!

4. southern things — Yeah, I remember this post, too.&nbsp  It was about traditionally-Southern things that I’m just not that into.

5. — Wow.&nbsp  Why would you do a Google search for the URL?&nbsp  Why wouldn’t you just go to the URL and see what’s there?

6. saturday six — Nice.&nbsp  Glad to know people still look for it.&nbsp  (Have you played the most recent edition?)

7. sufficive to say — I’m always glad to see this one pop up, because it means that whoever searched for the phrase was taken to a post that explained that there’s no such phrase.&nbsp  The correct phrase is “suffice it to say.”

8. addressee unknown — I did a post about getting someone else’s mail.&nbsp  There must be a lot of others out there in the same boat.

9. mental feng shui — This one is almost always somewhere on the list.

10. turning 40 humor — No doubt searched for by someone who was 39 and looking for laughs.&nbsp  I hope they found them in my Turning 40 series.

And I hope you found — and continue to find whatever it is you’re looking for here at the blog.&nbsp  Thanks for visiting!

  • I often use my swagbucks search engine to go to blogs even though they’re in my reader, because I get rewards! I’m waiting for my $5 Amazon gift card as I type this. I discovered Swagbucks while looking at my Statcounter, noticing someone arrived at my blog that way. Did a post on it and the person left a comment explaining the whole thing.
