Search me

I love hearing what search words bring people to their blog. Tell me what the funniest words that people googled and ended up at your blog.
And if you tell me yours, I'll tell you mine!
Fun Fact: I started this blog post almost a year ago and never posted it! I added a few more search words, but I will consider this a gift of Christmas Past.

Most common search words (besides my name) that lead people to this blog
How to Make Butterbeer (Thanks, Harry)
cinquain poem
Big Ticks
funny frog poems (you would not believe how many people search for this!)
cardinal poem (should I include in my query letter for my bird poetry collection that so many people search for this one?!)
I said Good Day!

Plus people search Mark McVeigh and Marietta Zacker and get to my blog interviews with them (yay!).

And of course searching names of rock bands also bring people to my blog (and then the teenager gasps at the picture of the somewhat middle aged lady on the right side of the blog and quickly exits).

Searches that made me laugh or cringe include
Addicted to Blood (and this search came from the Mayo Clinic!)
A Word that Rhymes with Saliva (ummmm, shmabiva?)
Spooky Rhyming Poems How to Cook a Teacher? (What?!)
Vampire Music (I do love music, and I do love vampires)
Kelly 14 Years Stripping (what kind of pervs am I attracting?)
Jacoby Shaddix's wife Kelly (No, I am not his wife, but I have seen him with his band Papa Roach in concert five times)
my wild and raunchy son (certainly not MY son!)
a cinquain poem that teachers don't know (somebody's trying to plagiarize?)
Son knaws on his arm (I'm not that bad of a cook)
"Heather Kelly" + dance (Heather are you holding out on us!?!)
few seconds of awesome (why yes, reading my blog would bring a few seconds of awesome to your day)
funny poems about Justin Beaver (so my hubby isn't the only one who thinks that's his name)
Jared Leto not aging (what is that guy's secret anyway?)
oldest person at a 30 Seconds to Mars concert (sheesh, don't everyone look at me at once!)
the family that headbangs together, stays together (yeah, baby!)

Okay, now your turn to share!


Angela Ackerman said...

Kelly, you're a stripper? *gasp* Bwahahhaaaa...

And that last one? SO true!

I think the weirdest one I found leading to my blog was 'drowning earthworms in gasoline'. I don't even want to know how that fit into my blog, lol.

Christina Lee said...

"Kelly 14 Years Stripping" ?!?!? *SNORT* I always get "Robert Pattinson-grey jacket" ?!?!?

Matthew Rush said...

Oh man, too bad Angela already stopped by, because somehow one of mine relates to her. Here are some from Google Analytics:

- reading monks bookends
- angela walking dead zombie experiment
- alex cavanaugh matthew rush (love Alex, but have no idea why someone would search us both at once)
- critique the experiment 2010
- matthew rush and his latest lover

And this one is for Candace:


- teen candyland.com

somehow points to my blog. That's pretty disturbing.

Kelly said...

Angela- I thought I put my stripping past behind me! (KIDDING!) And who in the world is drowning worms in gasoline!?
Christina - Not a bad link to be associated with!
Matthew - Ha! Ha! You have quite a crazy variety of search words, but I did have a need for monk bookends so I'm glad you mentioned that!

Kelly said...

Christina - And to clarify I mean the Rob Pattz link not the stripping linkage! ;)

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Mommy is a pole dancer! (hahahaha)
Okay. I used to get hairy women in France. Now I get my name, francophile things, going to the doctor in France, and Pepe le Pew. All French things.

Laura Pauling said...

Too funny!!! I can't even remember the weird searches but there have been some. That's great that the music and agents are leading people to your blog! Great exposure.

MG Higgins said...

I just checked--my favorite recent one is "fashion vegetables." Lots and lots of "veggie pun" searches. I love yours! It's amazing what people search for. Really makes you wonder.

Tina Laurel Lee said...

Even more than your funny searches, I like your parenthetical replies! You had me laughing over here. Good morning!

Anita said...

Blurry Tattoo
Suspended Ceiling Tiles

Kris said...

Ok seriously, How do I do this? I want to know what searches lead people to me...

Very funny, Kelly!

Kimberly Franklin said...

Okay, so I just checked mine. And most of my searches are actually by my name. However, most of those people (probably none of them!) are actually looking for me. They're most likely looking for the porn star who stole my name! :) Crazy.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Those are funny! I have no idea what words lead people to my blog. I bet Kate Beckinsale is at the top though.

Elana Johnson said...

Addicted to blood! Ha ha ha! I, uh, don't know how to find this information out.

Kim Kasch said...

I haven't thought much about it. I do put tags (usually) when I post but more so I can find them after a while. 4getful me.

Now, I'm curious. . .

Kelly said...

Sam- Does the frog sing "Hairy Woman" to you to the tune of Pretty Woman? ;) And no, I've never been on the pole! :)
Laura- I agree, good exposure; some will help, some most certainly not!
Mel- I know! Maybe Lady Gaga will wear a dress of fashionable veggies instead of meat next awards show!
Hee! Thanks, Tina!
Anita- Your and your hubby's tattoos that are all over the internet are not at all blurry ;)
Kris - Statcounter!
Kimberly- I hope some of those pervs like to read at least!
Alex- Most certainly Kate is at the top of that list!
Elana- Okay, this totally surprises me! Statcounter...
Kim- Do you have statcounter or google analytics?

DEZMOND said...

"oldest person at a 30 Seconds to Mars concert" ahahhaaaaa :)) we know it wasn't you, darling :)

And don't actually know how to found out what brought people to my site.

Rena said...

How funny. I've gotten a few trying to sell medicine after I've posted a few things.

Susan Fields said...

That's funny - I didn't even know StatCounter did that! My wierdest ones were "nipple nightshade" and "monty python fairy." LOL!

Solvang Sherrie said...

So now we know what you really do for a living! I knew when I saw that dancing video of yours that those mad skills didn't come from a regular dance floor :)

Kelly said...

Dezz- I do have to say it was mostly teens there though! At least Jared Leto is my age!
Rena-Yes, I could do without the spam. I think somehow Blogger deletes some of them though.
Susan - Those are crazy ones!
Sherrie - And now you know why I pay for things in singles. Okay, I have to stop kidding about it or someone is going to think I was really a stripper!:)

J.Tuttle said...

Funny post! I was with Kris and didn't know how you find what leads people to the blog (I'm new to the blogosphere), but you said just go to statcounter? That must be in the statistics section of my dashboard? I'll give it a shot!

Lydia Kang said...

I just looked and I got a random sampling:
in media res
harry potter
wishbone theory
bbq ribs (yum!)
literary devices

This was fun, I never did it before!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Will you shoot me an email on how to do this search? (old, blonde lady blushes)

Funny stuff, Kelly!
