i don’t want to be googled this way

my little sitemeter freeware (very cool stuff, btw), allows me to peek at ‘referrals’ (what URL people come to this blog from). about 3/4 are blocked or unknown, but the rest are quite interesting. it has allowed me to see how many readers come over from the lighthouse trails press release, or — today — from the lovely carla at emergentno, who, because i commented a one-sentence factual clarifier, has posted about me! welcome, emergentno readers! you are welcome here anytime. and, there, carla — blog traffic favor returned!


that’s not the point of this post.

the referrals also allow me to see something quite fun: google (or msn or whatever) searches that lead to this blog. so i can click on the referral link and see, for instance, that someone searched on msn search for “strategic planning bowling” and my blog tops the findings! now, why someone would be searching “strategic planning bowling” is a bit beyond me — as is, frankly, why i ever had those three words in a post.

but i just clicked on one, and saw that someone had searched for “” — and wouldn’t you guess, my poor burgandy mist strat once again climbs the list. sigh.

Actually, Marko, that’s “stragetic planning”, the dyslexic equivalent of strategic planning.

I was thinking emergent new orleans? but no.

These people never cease to amaze me. I just kept scrolling down hoping that it would end, that some tiny light of reason would shine through.

But no.

Even more depressing is that she’s obviously intelligent and articulate.

I was Just reminded

I was over at YSMarko and he posted a few days ago about some of the tools site owners have. One of these tools lets me see what Google searches (MSN and yahoo too!) lead to my site. (YSMarko’s entry…

I love watching my site referalls too. (Actually, I recently saw the click-through from your sitemeter, so I could have guessed you were watching your referalls!)

One of my favorites for my site is:
“taoism philosophy selfishness emo”
Ah, yes, I’m glad my blog meets all their
taoist philosophical selfish emo needs!
