My Web Presence

Something I really do love about Google Analytics is that you can see the search terms people used to find your blog.

For a long time I've seen certain keywords. People find my blog all the time by searching for "list of things to be thankful for", "thankful list", and "list of things that make me happy" and those sorts of phrases. Today I decided to take a look at my site over the past year. Here are some of the things I've found:

Most popular blog entry: Things I'm Thankful For (201 visits)
Ted Mosby is a Jerk (196 visits)
Black Fur hats (172 visits)

There's a big drop off here,
Why I Hate Poetry (92 visits)
Save the Whales (88 visits)
Netflix Free Month (85 visits)

On Google, my blog comes up...
as the 5th result (out of 11,900,000 results!) for... list of things to be thankful for
as the 4th result for... i hate ted mosby
as the 14th result for... ted mosby
as the 8th result for ... how to repair a busby hat [which is interesting because my blog has nothing about that]
as the 4th result (of 2,100,000) for ... tall black fur hat
as the 6th result for ... bearskin bamboo cage [ooookay.]
as the 7th result (of 528,000) for ... hate poetry

Some interesting search keywords that have led people to my blog include:

- "20, 23, 28, 14, 17, 22, 11"
- "difference between treated and untreated wood" [undoubtedly from the post about visiting the Man Mall and building my garden box]

- why do people like machu picchu [because it's awesome]
