Search Engine Referrals

July 27th, 2006

Although I haven’t been blogging, I have kept an eye on Mint and Google Analytics to see if anyone is reading the crap I’d already written.

People other than me also seem keen to see which keywords people enter into the search engines to get to their site. I’m not interested in the most popular term, week in, week out it is Nurgle. For just my blog it was the man whose arms exploded last month and will be the man whose arms exploded once again this month. No I’m more interested in the more obscure and amusing search engine referrals, the long tail if you will.

I’ve written about it before. But here are some of the more amusing and illuminating results from about June 7th until yesterday. They are in the rough order of oldest appearance. I took out the +’s that are sometimes between keywords in Google Analytics and sometimes are not, I should learn why this is so, probably just how different search engines do things…

  • fucking in sleep
  • “anyone who runs is a vc”
  • naked female accordion player cartoon

  • who is the best civilization to be on civilization 3?
  • what happens when you fuck
  • armoured water pistol
  • michelle kang
  • rina hadziev
  • “shui qing mu hua yuan”

For some of these I can see how people ended up on my webpages, but some of them I can’t even imagine typing that into a search engine and why Google or whoever chose me…  It’s my own fault I suppose. I wonder if these search engine referral summaries lead to more weird referrals, I think just the more you write the more search engine referrals you get. I’ve written about monitoring search engine referrals in some detail.

Update December 2015

December 2015 will go down as the month where I finally went through every tag I’d ever used on Muskblog and attempted to bring more order and intelligence to my taxonomy once and for all. The many posts on strange keyword referrals were probably unwise, they brought more traffic undoubtably but it wasn’t Quality traffic. In the last few years I’ve attempted to rebuild my personal online brand to be more professional to be an asset in my never ending post-MBA job search. I’ve kept these collections of dubious keyword referrals because they did amuse some of my friends, some of my friends who are no longer with us today.

I never claimed to be perfect but I am older and wiser than when I was a student at the Sauder School of Business, I’m still too honest for my own good however.

  • If I keep publishing these I’ll have to be even more selective, in a given week according to Google Analytics I get around a 1000 different keyword phrases as referrals. I’m thinking of going with the ones that produce the highest number of page views per visit. I think that is a great indicator, though the truely odd ones would get missed.

    Page views per visit, means they came to my website, likely for the first time, and stuck around to read (or at least load) 5, 10, 20, 30, or more pages.

    You can also see how much search engine traffic is related to S-E-X/P-O-R-N. I almost never use profanity but in a few places often movie quotations or song lyrics or excerpts from other stuff the word F-U-C-K or A-S-S appears. That along with a joke/experiment I may have taken too far has resulted in some strange referrals.

    I wonder if this will get past my own anti-spam plugins?

  • Although I don’t know why I keep updating my blog, particularly which keyword phrases are the most amusing and interesting, but here are the phrases that generate the most pages viewed per visit in the last week or so. This is an excellent measure and shows how my website caters to the Long Tail.
