What the Internet Asks of Me

… via search terms submitted by blog visitors, of course!

This is a cross-over of search term poetry and using search terms for serious investigations: A collection of phrases from 2015 WordPress statistics, plus comments [in italics and bold].

As usual, phrases are unedited except from truncations at beginning and end, and I have added ‘suitable’ images taken recently.

    You get such better search terms than I do. I can’t imagine what it takes to get a search query like “63,42 divided by 3” to bring someone to a site.

    1. elkement says:

      Thanks, Joseph! I think this phrase was triggered by the title of my post celebrating one year of blogging:
      “Blogging Anniversary with Post No. 63. Equal to: 42 Plus (42 Divided by 2)”
      So put weird stuff in the title :-)

      1. Joseph Nebus says:

        Yeah, what the heck. I’ll give it a try.

  2. Gary Schirr says:

    Always interesting! ;-)

      Thanks, Gary :-) I should think about utilizing those search terms for ‘social media marketing’ ;-)

    I liked the triffid. I made one once, but it only lasted about three years. The termites ate it.

    1. elkement says:

      Thanks, Howard! We have no termites here – and it seems ants take much much longer to achieve the same.

    Nice. I love the photos!

      Thanks, Michelle :-) All taken with my stone-age smartphone ;-)

  5. Good stuff! We’re you able to get stuff directly from WordPress or did you use the Google webmaster tools to find some?

    1. elkement says:

      Thanks, Maurice! These are all from WordPress statistics only – but for 6 months. I planned to use the terms of the full last year (starting with July 2014), but I cannot access the second half of 2014 any more because of the change in the layout of WP statistics.
