Google Searches

I love seeing the range of ways people find this blog.

Often it is only the "next blog" button at the top of the page. Other times it comes from links on other pages.

Then there are the Google search term arrivals. These are usually relevant terms in some vague way. Others are pure insanity. Like the one I found today.

"katy perry naked"

Now I know I have never talked about Katy Perry on this blog, let alone Katy Perry in a state of undress, until this very post. The fact that Google somehow pulled up this blog with those search terms is in itself is a bit troubling.

Then once they found my blog they searched for those terms again. Who is that desperate? That is also troubling.

But do you want to know the worst part? Five hits from that search originated between 10:41 a.m. and 10:42 a.m. California time, from Fresno, California....

...from the Kings County Office Of Education.

Ponder THAT one for a while, oh ye lovers of public education.

How do you know how people find your blog with certain word searches?

Kara: I use several programs that monitor the activity on my site. One of those shoes the Google search terms and/or prior website from which a reader came to my blog.
