Wheelchair Snogging & Sadoku

At some point in the life of every blog it seems bloggers cannot resist sharing the weird and wonderful terms used in search engines to bring up their blog. I am used to all the usual gran porn and variations but for true stat counter whoring then I don't think Sadoku can be beat. My counter whizzes round courtesy of that purposefully mis-spelled word and have been thinking I need to use that word again! That's partly why stat counters mean nowt and are just a bit of fun. After all, when someone lands on your blog looking for the porno pics of "very old women" and then find some prat whittering on then they are gone faster than that.

I don't understand this gran porn thing.... I really thought it was a joke but then I actually clicked on some links to the dodgy stuff and well, as broad-minded as I like to think I am, I'm afraid I find it very hard to understand. We are not talking sexy grandmas or elegant older women. These are great-grandmother women who are spoken about in a derogatory and non-consensual way.

It all depends on which search engine is being used but a search on "bran" often turns up this blog on the first page of results. And what is this "fun bran" that a lot of people search for?

I've never kept a list of the weird and wonderful search terms used but this evening someone searched for "Wheelchair Snogging" in the BBC search engine which has really impressed me. Not sure why but I just like the idea of "Wheelchair Snogging".

Do you think they look for carburettors holding hands, or walking sticks cuddling?

I don't bother looking at referrals or counting visits. I'm sure for me, the whole thing would be an entirely depressing business and just emphasise how totally unvisited my blog is.

I could do without the weirdo's anyway.

(I'm going to visit Z next, btw)

Ever heard of googlewhack?
Some ladies left a message for me, telling me my site is a googlewhack for "skidmarking elf"...which means my site is the ONLY site that pops up when those two words are used together.
(Of course, now that I've commented, your site might also appear, and I've lost my googlewhack honor).
I've noted some interesting ones.
May have to blog on this.

Wheelchair snogging. You may have to give 'em what they want.

Writer Mom said: "Wheelchair snogging. You may have to give 'em what they want." Only if you give 'em a "skidmarking elf" !!! Ha-ha :-D

Carol What a bummer when your message gets shomped up.

Z I bet you that it could actually be quite amusing. Is your site on Blogger in which case it gets automatically submitted to the search engines.

Cheryl !! LOL

googlewhack.....hmmmmm..not heard of that one, but that coud be a bit of a challenge, to find out what you could post to make you the only person who comes up in a search.
One other point Doris:- you said, "find some prat whittering on" if you use this phrase does it bring you to my blog??

And you did! Thanks WRITER MOM.
Um, yeah, well, Doris. I think I better stick to tryig to make a post and get a few reads in. Maybe when the summer rolls round and I have endless lazy days then I'll be able to look at stats, for now, it would be a time sink.
I'll be sure to let you know if I get any interesting ones ;)

That's funny. You know what the fifth most common search term finding my site is? 'Grease men'.

So how many people are searching for this, whatever it means, to have that come up fifth? LOL!
