last year, just as my blog (and my interest in other blogs) was taking off, I read a post by Reluctant Scooper about obscure search terms that had led readers to his blog. Finding the results perplexing and amusing in equal measure I dallied briefly with the idea of using Google Analytics myself, but it looked either confusing, too techy, or like you'd have to pay. Luckily my Stats page (which I never look at, ahem...) provides similar info.
Only a few hours ago, caught napping, I noticed that he'd put the details up for 2012 - here's the link. Which means I now have to finally utilise the information I have diligently saved over the last year.
I do hope Mr Scooper won't object to my borrowing the concept, but if anything doing so simply confirms what a great idea it is. Managing to find out how one ends up with so many readers in Russia, Ukraine and Latvia, and how a post mentioning the word hairy seemed to attract multiple page views above and beyond that which one could reasonably expect, may not be useful; but is nonetheless intriguing.
Here, in chronological order, are the weirdest :
Old bottled iron
Norfolk pub with peacocks in
Old hairy men
Men with hairy pubs
Pub friend rosta
Relax alcohol arm bier
