WordPress provides me with a pretty impressive set of stats on this here blog. It tells me which posts are being viewed the most. (Silly Jackson 5 post) It also tells me where folks are clicking from to get here, like MySpace or other blogs. It also tells me what terms people entered into search engines in order to come to my blog.
Most of these terms make sense. I would hope that when you go to Google, and enter “peggyluwho” you’d come to me. The blog is in fact the first entry.
However, the number one search engine term used to reach my blog, of all time, is “rats”. I did one post about rats. One. And it wasn’t even good. But what I really want to know is, what search engine are you people using?
I entered “rats” in Google, Yahoo, and Ask, and none of them came up with my blog within the first five pages. I assume that, like me, most people who don’t find what they’re looking for in the first page or two, give up and search for something else. So, I’m assuming that there’s some search engine out there, that when you enter “rats” it gives you my blog within the first four pages.
What is that search engine?
Of course, now that I’ve posted this entry with the word in it about 12 times, it’s really going to be the #1 search term.
I just want to know, if you’re here, and you’re reading this after doing a search for “big rats,” what engine did you use? Please tell me. The curiosity is killing me.
