Ever take a look at your blog statistics and seen some of the unusual things people have searched for and come to your site? Go ahead, take a look, it’s fun.
I’ve seen funnier lines in the past, but for March the most unusual searches were:
“joshua tree slot canyon ladder” I have visited Joshua Tree National Park in California. Also hiked a slot canyon or two, in Arizona. No ladders for me at either, and there were a few places I could have used one.
“how long does it take for a dove egg to hatch?” When I first met Mike over two years ago he had two pet doves. One of them kept laying infertile eggs. They’re kind of small for omelets.
“janie snow Vicksburg” Although I did spend some time selling at a flea market in Vicksburg, Arizona during the winter, thank goodness it never snowed. Anybody know a Janie Snow?
March most viewed from searches:
The fourth most searched and landed on post for this month makes me wonder a bit. Panning for gold, in the kitchen? has been bringing people in since February 2010. I guess we’re all hoping for a “get rich quick” idea. But really.
When I started blogging in October 2008 I joined the My World Tuesday meme and for weeks wrote a series about The Gypsy life of a seasonal Park Ranger at Grand Canyon National Park. Considering it’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and that I have the best job in the world this third most searched comes as no surprise.
Without much thought I posted Thrifty Thursday-It’s Victoria’s secret in February and it went viral within two days. I post frequently about purchases made at thrift stores and yard sales with minimum attention. But this one is still drawing them in at number two for March.
Working with Wildlife continues to be the number one viewed post. Why not, doesn’t everybody like animals. But along with that the most searched image is also from that post, a ringtail cat. Isn’t it cute?
