list 3: bacon gnomes and giant boar heads

February 4, 2010

Those are actual words that someone typed into Google and as a result, arrived here, surely disappointed by my lack of pig-pertinent content. My first thought upon reading some of the search terms, which show up on my blog stats, is “What the hell are people doing looking for such information?”  and secondly, “How the heck did they find their way to MY blog with that search?”  What kind of a blog am I running over here?

(This reminds me of a hilarious article I once read: What does Google Suggest suggest about the state of humanity?)

And so I present to you list number 3: search terms that have lured people to my blog for some reason or another.

  1. what to do when you turn 34 (put on a party hat, drink wine, eat cake and dance)
  2. crazy eyebrows (probably has something to do with this)
  3. be fully present
  4. taste of heaven (words most likely used in every single one of my Italy posts)
  5. alleyways in barcelona
  6. quequette translation (it’s penis, in case you were wondering)
  7. big nostrils (this is what i find when i google big nostrils)
  8. bacon gnome
  9. giant boar head
  10. wild hog paintings (for a vegetarian girl, that sure is a lot of pig reference)
  11. snow tulips
  12. how unworthy is my scribbling (harsh)
  13. what is good to use when you have diarrhea (the toilet, ideally)
  14. bad photographed pepsi
  15. olive tree sunrise (sounds lovely, yes?)
  16. full moon at alhambra
  17. band-aid broken hearts (this one made me want to hug the person that searched it)
  18. potted geraniums
  19. random things usually said by bohemians (i’m just a poor boy, nobody loves me)
  20. i want to be a yogi
  21. mark ruffalo’s relaxed bohemian home (mmm. mark ruffalo)
  22. locations for street ladies near rome (what the hell?)
  23. “my lips are blue” in danish (google must have been cracked out when it pointed this person my way)
  24. people drinking and pouting (seems mutually exclusive to me)
  25. french translation the shit hit the fan
  26. she’s a dude (and there’s nothing wrong with that)
  27. talking to yourself is sign of intelligence
  28. colorful buildings on steep hillside
  29. travelers are loners
  30. naked squam (the skinny dipping rumors travel quickly)

And making fourth on the list of search terms for all days ending 2010-02-04, after the obvious jeanine caron, wonderings & wanderings and wanderings & wonderings was… LOVE, which made me oh so happy… knowing that people find their way here after googling love. Sure beats “babies are strange”.

How about you… have you ever noticed any funny search engine terms in your blog stats?

    Loved this. Big nostrils? I am off to my blog stats to see what is there for me.

    This is a brilliant list! Too funny: big nostrils! *snort*

    “Colourful buildings on a steep hillside” is nice though. There is a kind of poetry to some of them.

    Have you ever seen autocomplete me? It’s a site to showcase what comes up sometimes on google as search suggestions. It’s a bit mind boggling that some of them have been searched by enough people to pop up.

    I haven’t looked at my stats in ages (I’m way too sporadic with my blogging activities) but I just did now and my favourite is:
    “Hedgehog riding a snail”

    I haven’t done that in a while…makes me wonder! LOL

    but of course I think google has cracked a lot times.

    Hilarious! Now I’m curious to see what mine are. Also… what on earth is a bacon gnome? A gnome made of bacon? a gnome who eats bacon? a tiny pig? bacon shaped like gnome? Curious…..
