WTF Moment

I just had a WTF moment. Looking through my blog stats, I noticed someone found my site using the phrase 'being rich doesn't mean being happy'.

That certainly isn't any sentiment of mine. I'd be very happy if I was rich. Of course, it isn't a guarantee for all people. Sometimes people let money do strange things to them. I'm not one of those people.

I get the strangest keyword and phrase searches sometimes. Like the person who keeps looking for 'tasteful sex scene' - so much so that they tried it with 'scenes', too. No sex scenes here. Even in my books, I just hint at the fact they might have had sex, or the idea they might be interested in it, but I don't talk about it. My stories just don't warrant it, yet. Another R rated one was 'tenting his pants'. Ummm. OK.

Some of the weirder ones are: geeky bird, stygian witches, and toad preditors. Of course, there also was the search for 'liz vicious hack' - whoever she may be, I don't want to know her.

The prize for the most pitiful search, though, goes to the lone woman(?) who came here after searching for the phrase: when a man has no time to take you to dinner or see you. If she comes back, the only advice I have to offer is talk to the guy, find out if he really is busy and you're just being paranoid, or if he's blowing you off. If he's blowing you off, go find another man. Seriously, though, you won't find any other help here.

What are some weird searches you've seen? What are some searches you've done that if seen by a stranger would look weird? I think the weirdest one I've ever done was a search for was underwater digital voice recorders. (Come on, haven't you ever had an idea in the shower?)

I'm going to go look and see what weird search words have been used and landed at my site. I shudder to think of what I might find.

I don't look at it often, but I just did a quick check. How's this for a search that landed someone on my blog. "Anissa looks like a monkey"

Okay then.

Hee hee - the geek side takes over!! You do like your analytics don't you ;)

I'm afraid mine are all very, very tame. Juicy things like "brother c6000i" and "soil separator cloth".

Mine are tame as well, but I don't have nearly the traffic that you have. I just found this part of Analytics last night, so I'll have to keep an eye on it.

I wouldn't even know how to begin checking on such things. Gosh, and I thought I was doing okay with all this newfangled technology! Sheesh!
