After about 6 months of running protozoic.com, I decided to take a look at all the phrases that brought up our site in search engines. You see, when someone types in a phrase in search engine like Google and clicks on a result, the search phrase used to find the result is forwarded on to the site hosting the “result.” This phrase shows up in the server logs and various log analysis packages tally up the results.
So, looking through the search phrases that led people to our site show some expected and some unexpected results. Of course, obvious words like “protozoic” make sense (by far the most popular phrase), and it warms my heart that several people were obviously looking for us with phrases such as “mike tim gray spontaneous combustion protozoic” or “may i have some cake please video.”
Thanks to Tom, we have a wonderful selection of phrases originating from people searching for Committed ringtones for their cell phones. We can thank Brian for “infantryzone,” the “.475 wildey” phrases, and all the variations of “xtreme walking” and “parkour.” I have no idea why so many are interested in it, but it certainly seems popular. And of course, Fart Bomb is no doubt the target of “fart mp3,” “fart poetry,” “fart science projects,” “how do we fart,” and of course, just plain old “fart.” Wonder why people are so interested in farts?
All of these phrases that I’ve mentioned make sense. Of course, its interesting to see what exactly leads people to Protozoic, but still, the phrases do generally have something to do with the content. Its the others that confuse me:
- “chia pet growth directions” — Isn’t it on the box/seed packet?
- “parent’s benifits in prostitution” — This has a been a popular one. Not quite sure why.
- “conspiracy pumpkin quicktime movie” — I’d like to see that.
- “puffy pussies” — We’ve gotten several hits off of this. Different strokes for different folks.
- “clap on clap off slogan” — I searched the site and couldn’t even find the word “clap” mentioned once. Same goes for “slogan.”
- “venus’s moon” — This one makes me chuckle. Venus doesn’t have a moon, and when people go looking for info about it, they get this instead.
- “cereals stuck in aisle” — I don’t even know what to say about this.
I look forward to the next 6 months of search phrases to see what kind of stuff brings people to Protozoic.
