Hello you beautiful people.
It’s been a hot minute since the blog’s been updated. A week and a day, to be exact. It’s a good thing that no one’s being paid to write on here, otherwise they’d have been fired for lack of production.
That’s not to say that we haven’t had people visiting the site, however. Indeed, on any given day, we have had between 5 and 8 views. From a statistical standpoint, we’re getting more hits than an anti-Spice Girls site that hasn’t been updated since 1999. I’ll take those numbers.
The way people are coming to the site troubles me a little. For those of you who have not discovered the joy of WordPress yet, each blog is given a “dashboard”, where the creator/handler of the site can analyze how many individuals visit the site, and what search terms are used to bring people to the site.
At the beginning, we had the standard search-term fare. Lady Gaga, Mark Sanford, Sarah Palin, et cetera.
However, ever since Aaron wrote his entry about the epidemic of old men being naked in locker rooms, the search terms have been getting…well…weird.
The past couple of weeks, the search terms that have brought people to our site have included “naked old men”, “nude public shower room”, and my personal favorite, “elderly nude”.
I really have no idea what the people who typed in those terms were looking for. Well, I have an idea, but I don’t want to think about it more than I have to. All I have to say, though, is if you are one of those people who typed in one of those terms, hoping to find material of a more…adult nature…sorry. Don’t get me wrong, I’m ecstatic that you decided to click on the link to our humble little site, but if you were coming on here in hopes of octogenarian intimacy, sorry to disappoint.
Being the dedicated researcher I am, I decided to put those search terms in myself, and see where our site showed up. It both bothered and pleased me that the site didn’t show up in the first five pages. Pleasing because I’m fairly sure the last thing we want is to be known as a hub for love, elderly style. Bothering, because this means that whoever typed those terms in was clicking far into the search queue. I guess, perhaps, they had grown tired of the mainstream stuff, and were looking for something a little rawer.
In conclusion, keep on typing those wacky search terms, true believers. They brighten my day. Mostly.
