top search terms leading to this blog

traffic on my blog has, in many ways, never fully recovered from the 9 month blogging sabbatical i took in 2009 when i was trying to focus 100% of my energies on ys. i realize that some of that, during that period, has shifted to blog readers, which don’t show up in my wordpress stats. what certainly does show up are the random visitors who come by one time because of something they found in a search engine. and many of these are so completely random, connected to a funny photo or an old oddity post (back when i was posting 2x/day, 7 days/week, i had a lot more oddity posts!).

so i cracked up the other day when i looked at the list of top search terms that have led people to my blog. a quick perusal of the list might easily cause one to surmise very different things about what is important to me! let’s hear it for “show jumping” and “ferrets”!

  1. How does it feel to come in third place on your own blog? That’s either genius SEO or brilliant ferret marketing.

  2. Yea, a little bizarre when “show jumping” beats “marko” or your full name in search terms leading to your blog. Love it though… I have to check mine out now.
