Weird Searches for Our Blog

google4b.jpg

I recently blogged about where hits to our blog come from, and one of the major sources of hits to a blog are searches via Google and other search engines. In our site meter stats, you can see what search terms people use to visit our blog. I’ve looked at these on occasion, curious about what brings people to our blog.

Most of the very common search terms are obvious –- “opinions,” “concurring,” “law,” “legislating,” and “paparazzi.” But then there’s also “naked” and “celebrity” –- we have Kaimi to thank for that, as he posted a post entitled “Naked celebrities make the best magazine covers” about a ranking of the best magazine covers of the past 40 years, with the nude John Lennon and nude Demi Moore covers as #1 and #2 respectively.

Here are some of the more interesting searches I discovered:


SEARCH: Contents of the Dead Man’s Pocket

I have no idea what this is possibly about or how it led a reader to our blog.


SEARCH: aals meat

This one’s my fault – I posted on the AALS meat market.


SEARCH: chemical changes that of apple without a peep

Huh?


SEARCH: peep shows

My fault – I named a post Airline X-Ray Peep Shows.


SEARCH: FREE NAKED PEEP SHOWS

I’m certain that this person was very disappointed upon learning my post was about airline screening X-rays.


SEARCH: Unbeknown to you the sun has jumped the gun

Totally baffling!


SEARCH: humorous curses

I have no idea what post this linked to, but perhaps I don’t want to know . . .


SEARCH: rev. david hoffman

I learn new things about my co-bloggers every day.


SEARCH: genetic diseases for idiots

Speechless.


SEARCH: nozick rawls organ donors

I don’t think that getting organs from either Nozick or Rawls at this point would be a good idea.


SEARCH: Society shuffle of paperwork Nietzsche

Not a clue what this is about.


SEARCH: STUPID QUOTES FROM LIBERALS

There’s no such thing.


SEARCH: naked celebrities

This is a popular search, and it has yielded around 40 hits.  Kaimi’s post on magazine covers sure is popular.  But I bet that there are many disappointed web surfers out there who are cursing you, Kaimi.


SEARCH: celebriti nude

We keep getting searches with this misspelling of celebrity.  It’s nice to know we pull up on this search too!  Way to go Kaimi!


SEARCH: 30 second movie parodies with bunnies star wars

Star Wars meets Hugh Hefner?


SEARCH: how the constitution be best interpreted

Yes – our blog is the authoritative source on this question.


SEARCH: Paparazzi sometimes go to far. They invade total privacy and tell things that should only be kept to the famous.

I find this search strangely amusing.


SEARCH: wacky words and wacky facts

Wacky search.


SEARCH: play demented and twisted games

This search pulls up our blog?  Yikes!


SEARCH: life of a junkie

Time to quit . . . looking for weird searches, that is. . .

    I’m happy to contribute to our traffic any way I can, Dan. I hope you enjoy my upcoming posts on “The jurisprudence of Britney Spears naked” and “The philisophical meaning of Pamela-Anderson-naked-pics-click-here-they’re-free.”

    As for the Star Wars bunny one, that’s clearly being drawn in by my quick post about the IP consequences of knock-off spoof movies, including a Star Wars movie and a series of movies “re-enacted by bunnies.” I kid you not. The post is here: http://concurringopinions.com/archives/2005/10/short_movies.html . (Until your post today, it had the distinction of being the only post on Co-op that included the word “bunnies.”)

    When I use Google with the search string in your illustration (“the coolest …”), pride of place goes to a list of Canada’s best blogs. Hooray for our neighbors to the North.

  3. Kaimi — Now that you’ve mentioned Britney Spears and Pamela Anderson, we can start getting hits for these. Soon we’ll be the most widely read blog on the planet.

    Joe — What? Our blog doesn’t pull up first under that search? I guess Google isn’t smart enough yet.

    It’s a moving short story. You should read it sometime. I cited it in a comment to (I think) one of Nate Oman’s posts.

  5. How Blogs Make Google a Legitimate Legal Research Tool

    Dan Solove has an amusing post up on some of the odd Google searches that have directed people to Concurring Opinions. I suspect that some of the oddities are the result of comment and trackback spam. Blogs tend to rank

    I have a post up on a related topic at PropertyProf (see the trackback above), but I wonder whether some of the odd searches come from comment or trackback spam. I’m sure you delete it when you see it, but it might register with Google before you get to it.

    Or decided to become a screener.
