search engines and terms

Fanteja asked me how my site did in the big three search engines comparatively and I didn’t know, so of course I had to check.

Once I checked, of course I had to create a graph of the top 10 search phrases and where my site stood on each of the search engines (click on the image for a larger version).

I became so enamored with creating graphs that I created a graph of the top 10 search engine phrases.

Since I’m discussing search engine phrases anyway, I might as well include some odd search phrases that have led people to my site. Here’s a week of search phrases, and I’ve chosen a few to respond to below.

meaning behind if a guy calls a girl baby – Well, I see two options. One, he thinks she’s a baby. Two, he likes her. Take your pick.

lines that will put a girl on her knees – If you’re referring to pickup lines, I have a feeling some will bring her to her knees, but only because she’s doubled over with laughter.

lines to put your arm around a girl – Point over her shoulder and say, “Hey, look at the moon!” then deftly place your arm around her.

free gmail invitations – If you’re still looking for Gmail invitations, you’re way behind the times. Everyone has 50 now, and even if they give all 50 away in one day, they get another 50 the next day. E-mail anyone with a Gmail account and you’ll be able to get one.

regurgitated cottage cheese – Now why would you be searching for such an unpleasant thing like that. Why not search for fluffy bunnies or cute kittens?

i dont want to ruin the friendship – But! There’s always a big but when someone starts a conversation with that phrase.

what is pink stain in toilet bowl – I don’t know, but doesn’t it seem a little bit weird to be asking such a specific question to a web site? You’d probably have a better chance of finding out what it is by asking members of your household.

how to double your money – Fold a $1 bill over and put it back in your pocket.

pickup lines that girls love – The shortest list known to man.

urinal photos – They’re not that exciting. Really. Picture a stretched out toilet hung on a wall.

  1. I didn’t even know you could check something like that — cool! How would I go about checking something like that on my own Web site? Or is it something you registered for?

  2. I use a free software package on my server called AWStats to track them, and I used a spreadsheet to create the “purty” graphs. Depending on where your site is hosted, you should be able to install AWStats.

  3. How cool! I hadn’t seen anything like that before. I know the guy who set up our . . . what . . . Web space? (I’m totally exposing my lack of expertise here, lol) — he can do that kind of thing on our site, but I didn’t know we could potentially do it ourselves. Thanks for the link!

  4. No problem. I didn’t realize you had a web site. Would you be willing to share the URL?

  5. OK, but it’s very embarrassing how out of date it is — for being married to a software engineer, I have exceptionally poor & limited skills in that area. Working on it, though — the pages are done and I just need to upload them. I don’t know if this will link automatically, but it’s — and the little girl on the site, Natalie, is now 5 — not 2 — and she has both a brother and a sister now. Sad little neglected Web site.

  6. What’s there looks good, if a bit out of date. Thanks for sharing.
