Search terms used by people to find my site. Yes, really

I was inspired yesterday by my friend Richard MacKinnon to go hunting for the search terms people have used to find my site. I use Google Analytics to monitor my site traffic, which provides a nice way of scrolling through these. Of course, most of them are pretty predictable – “british insults”, “british slang”, “british slang words” et cetera. What’s more interesting is where you scroll down to the searches that had only one single occurence.

Some of these were still looking for my site.

Some of them were looking for the right sort of thing, although perhaps they didn’t find it on my site.

  1. Been away from these shores too long Chris, we call zucchine courgettes, we call eggplants aubergines.
    Oh, and very funny. I’m tempted to type some of these into google to see what else comes up – well not “dog buggers the grandmother” and definitely not google image search for that one

  2. Until now, I have avoided commenting on my own blog posts, and from editing articles after the fact. Even when people pointed out glaring errors, I’ve stayed away. Well, as the author of both a dictionary of British slang and a straightforward translation error, I feel I have to comment.

    I am sorry about this. I really am. Of course Ewan, and all the people on Facebook, and my wife are entirely correct. I did mean courgette. I won’t change the article, but let it be known that I am deeply sorry for my indiscretions, and I’d like to announce here that I will be taking an indefinite break from professional golf.

  3. Man, you make me laugh!!! “There’s no such thing as an overly specific fetish.”

    I don’t remember how I stumbled accross the English/American dictionary, but I certainly have had fun reading your blog!!!

  4. This gives me a renewed appreciation for both Chris’ deft wit and how hard poor Google slaves to help us all lead better lives, or at least feel like we’re leading better lives.

    I got here by a mundane (*yawn*) ‘British slang’ search. Now I feel all dull and unimaginative.

  5. Funny, yes. But none were funnier (in my opinion) as the one about the public restroom. Oh, and the shopping cart one. And…well, please just keep it up.

  6. I found your site while trying to figure out how people found mine! I love some of those… especially the uh, chocolate one and the zucchini one. It’s not just great to know what random terms people found a blog with, but also just some of the crazy crap they’re searching for! On that note, make sure Google Suggestion is on and start typing “Is it” – watch what comes up.

    I, too, wrote a post on search terms used to find me. Mine all deal with sexy women and wallpaper even though my site has NOTHING to do with either of those topics! It’s funny, too, because every other search term has to do with something I’ve blogged about. But then all of a sudden there are these random search terms.

    Anyway, thanks, it’s funny to see how people manage to find our blogs based off random irrelevant topics. And I thought Google was putting a stop to that… 😉
