Why Would You Look?

A map showing where all my visitors have come from. Pretty.

I know these posts may seem like a bit of a cop out, because its not really a proper blog entry, but I’ve not done this before on this blog, and some of these terms are quite strange.

Yes, its time to look at my site statistics. Hooray! I’m looking from 1st May onwards, because it was around then I started blogging more regularly on the site.

54 people have gotten to ceriselle.org from search engines. Some of the things they search for is pretty
innocuous, and is quite obvious someone was looking for me. Some of the other search terms though… what the hell were you looking for (and how did it come to my site?)

The full list is below this short break. I’ve split the list into 6 groups, Me, Music Downloads, Self Promotion, Fashion, Local, and Other Stuff. Oh, and my “hilarious” (nah) comments are next to them in italic. Enjoy.

Finding MeI think this is just my friends trying to find me.

Finding Blogs To Comment On To Promote Self – This irritates me a lot. If you have something to say, try and make your comment appropriate to the entry you are leaving it on. In other words, read the original entry first before promoting your own ethical fashion store.

Finding Fashionable StuffI honestly didn’t expect the majority of incoming visits to be from various fashion queries. I can’t afford Topshop, have no idea if Primark does gladiators (the Bristol store is crap!) and also have had issues with ill fitting gladiator sandals.

Finding Local Stuff – Unfotunatly I’ve not been to the Thali cafe yet, so can’t help you there. I doubt Aber will ever get a Topshop. And Febo in Utrecht is my favourite fast food place ever.

    hello! first of all, thank you for following me on twitter.

    and oh my goodness. those site stats are interesting!! i’ve never analyzed my own before. the only thing i know is how many subscribers i have! but “Finding Blogs To Comment On To Promote Self ” that is sooooooo funny! HAHAHAH can you imagine people sitting at their computers and googling things like that?

    even weirder is> why did the search engines decide to list you there? see there’s all this SEO and whatever nonsense that i’ve read about and NEVER understood and can’t be bothered with. hahaha!

    and wooden cake stand takes the cake. :D

    @gilda – People can get paid to promote a site, but the sites that are being promoted through my comments are ones that wouldn’t really have the resources to get people doing that. Odd.

    That cake pun is terrible (but I love it!)
