I was recently checking some blog stats, and paused to look at the Search Terms for Run With Holly.
Basically, these are phrases that someone entered into a search engine, which returned a blog entry of mine among the results – and the person clicked on it. I’ve seen bloggers publish these before, but never really paused to give mine much thought. But one caught my eye the other day, so I clicked through to see some of the others. There were some gems in there, and I thought you* might enjoy them as much as I did:
“anatomy of pot” [Singaporean authorities, please do not be misled by this search term.]
“i dont go for holiday without my holiday gadgets” [This might have been KMN. He is usually the gadget wrangler when we travel. It was a new experience for me to be internationally-gadget-responsible on my recent trip to the US.]
“banana skins to stop chafing” [It’s a thought, but I’ll admit I’ve never tested it…. I do often eat a pre-run banana, though. Recycling?]
“heel stuck in foot” [Definitely can’t help you with that one, dude.]
“can you please show me pork shank from the pig anatomy” [I love this one mostly because it is so polite!]
“how to put long hair in a swim cap singapore” [Whoops! You’ve got the wrong gal here! Also, I’m not sure why the country matters. Is there a different swim-cap-application policy in Asia?]
And I do think this one is my favorite….
“how to do the shrimp position in yoga” [Anyone? Anyone???]
To my blogging friends out there: Any good Search terms hit on your blog lately?
To anyone: What term do you wish you’d never Googled?
[After reading a post about Sea Lice on a fellow Singapore-based runner’s blog at running (my) life, I reluctantly Googled the term. Not one of my more brilliant moves…]
*And if you are someone who found my blog with one of these searches, WELCOME. I’m glad you’re here. Truly. We might laugh a bit, but it’s all good-natured, and we’re a fun crew. If you’re feeling sheepish, head over to Jeano’s most recent blog post and you can laugh at my commenting faux pas….
