Search patterns (aka. I have some time over today)

rI picked a random date back in time - april 1st, 2008, as it turned out, and took out some statistics on what people have searched for to wind up on my blog from then to now. Then I went through it and grouped those that are basically the same.

1: Post-it origami, origami, folding is top1 with 481 hits.
2: My friend Beledra gets more hits on my blog than I do myself, she has 133 hits here,
3: ..while I have 127.
4: Search terms about allergies, illness, medicines, MRI and astigmatism has 27 hits.
5: Search terms with "random" in them, that are not "random silme" or similar, has 24 hits.
6: Stinking Ikea furniture has 21 hits - apparently there are more people than me that thinks it does stink.
7: Ystävänpäivä, friendship day has 14 hits, with or without my name.
10: 11 hits to Fjelberg, Halsnoy and Norway road trips when I group them (I do because they appear in the same context in my posts).
8: Tall ships has 10 - including searches directly for what I know is the names of some tall ships.
9: Unecessary information, onödig information, has 9 hits!

Other patterns:
5 people wanted to know how to spend their sundays if they are bored and lazy.
2 people wanted to know how to become diligent.
2 people wanted to disturb sleeping cats.
2 people wanted to buy Kathie Winkle items (why didn't they mail me??).

12 people are unnaturally interested in witches on broomsticks (grouped under origami above since thats why they came here).
...and a bunch of people search for stuff which I have no idea how it made them come here.


  1. "2: My friend Beledra gets more hits on my blog than I do myself, she has 133 hits here,"

    Now this is funny, since I hardly google/search for myself and can't figure out why ppl would be googling me by my nick, as I'm never around nowadays in IRC.

    Strange :)

  2. Googling for you by your nick and clicking on my blog, not yours, nonetheless.


Be nice!
