Who are you?

Many of my favorite blogs do a feature periodically that showcases what keywords that people Google to end up on their blog. For that reason solely, I installed Google Analytics on my blog several months ago and proceeded to wait. And wait. And wait. I kept waiting for all of the funny keywords and interesting phrases to show up and they never did. Lots of words that I expected showed up time and time again. Until last night, that is. And so, I bring you my first edition of:

Who Are You and How Did You End Up Here?
  1. "Pic of Angies Show Palace" - Hubby & I have done a lot of work on this house, but I don't think I would call it a show palace. Hubby might differ on that opinion though since he's done more of the work and I've done more of the supervising.
  2. "Entertainment Addiction" - Yes folks, you came to the right place. My name is Angie and I have an entertainment addiction.
  3. "Angie in Twilight" - Yeah, I wish. (Rob: call me. Please.)
  4. "Cinderella Kiss" - That would SO happen if I could just get a call from the aforementioned vampire film star.
  5. "Hate Oriental Trading Company" - Hate is such a strong word. It's no secret that I'm not a big fan of this company, but I wouldn't say I hate them. Best Buy: now THAT'S a company I hate.
  6. "Vasectomy" - ??? I'm sure hubby is also thinking ???
  7. "There's a new in town screaming teenage girls" - My question here is what is the new ______ in town that's causing all this chaos? I'm sure I don't know.
  8. "Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell hot tub" - I can thank my buddy Shannon's guest post in December for the many variations of Goldie/Kurt traffic that I receive. This one in particular amused me greatly though. Who is looking for a hot tub anything of these 2? Yuck.
  9. "Iceland kids crafts" - If I had any idea that this would such a popular google phrase, I wouldn't have made QUITE as much fun of my brother for spending his Thanksgiving holiday there. I still think he's nuts for going to Iceland in Winter, but hey, at least my kids got a cool souvenir out of it.
  10. "Mexican lust foto" - I just laugh and laugh at how this sent anyone here. I'm pretty sure this reader DIDN'T find what they were looking for. However, I might be able to dig up a pic of me from my trip to Cancun many years ago. On second thought, maybe not.

And there are just a few of the interesting ways that my readers arrived here. I'll have another round of these probably next week. And I've saved a couple of really interesting ones for that post.

I did the exact same thing. And I was just looking at my key words last night. They deserve a post. Sometime soon.

But still...one of the most popular phrases for searching is Katie Cokks. Rather thank Katie Cooks. Not sure why that lands people at my spot. But it does. And surely they see rather quickly that I am not the tranny with the...well...you get the idea.

And did you know that your comments help to generate traffic to your site? And now you too can get Katie Cokks traffic.

You're welcome.

I mention Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn... and it sends weirdos to your site.

Kat mentions "porn for women" and that doesn't garner a single hit? Or have you just not posted about those yet?!

too funny! I have never figured out how to track that kind of stuff (wasn't aware you needed a google tool for it but now I know!) But I will go dig up those Cancun photos of us when we were 14! LOL! (Don't worry, I promise not to post them)

Love it. I haven't looked at mine in awhile but ... I need to go check it again. I love StatCounter!
