Most of you have a Feedjit blog traffic widget, correct? But have you ever clicked on the option to watch your traffic, live? I did this recently and noticed that when someone finds your blog through a Google search, their search is highlighted in pink and displayed for you. So, you'll know exactly what they were looking for when they found your blog link and clicked. This is where all those labels and meta tags come in handy for us bloggers. Huh? What's a meta tag? Well, I'm not going to explain it to you because I'm just not that good and this isn't a geeky techie blog. Don't believe a word Jill and Mark say when they call me a nerd. It ain't true! See? Would a nerd say the word "ain't"?
Anyway, I suggest you check out Blogger Tricks or Blogger Buster, because there are oodles of html tutorials for you to look through.
So anyway, I knew that adding meta tags and labels would help bring people to my blog, but I didn't think about the fact that it would also lead all the freaky-deakies right to my front door! And oh yes, my fine feathered friends. There are freaks of unimaginable proportions out there.
There are also people who are just a little curious about odd things. Or they're just a little stupid. Take your pick. Generally, these are Americans. We have Googlers from around here who want to know about very gripping things. Like...
Somewhere, USA: Braided leg hairs
Deltona, FL: Clear athletic cup
Missouri: What causes a whistling nose?
Texas: Boy am I hot, iced tea commercial
La Jolla (pronounced La Hoya), CA: Why do windows fog up scientific explanation
Augusta, GA: Causes of car window fogging up
Chesapeake, VA: Cat loves Gorton's fish fillets
Granby, CT: Guys who snort instead of blowing their nose
Fort Wayne, IN: Bare feet
Pasadena, TX: Something you shout with the letter V
And then we have the Googlers from countries far and wide. These are the freaky deakies I've mentioned. They want to know things like...
Colombo, Sri Lanka: Tiney sex
Bosanka Gradiska, Republika Srpska (Bosnia): Nasty Tiney girl
Karachi, Sindh-Pakistan: Free Tiney school girl photos
Oslo, Norway: Tiney sex photos
Aside: Can somebody please tell me who this Tiney person is that they are all searching for? Is she some well known sex diva of porn? Do I have to change my name now?
Albany, Oregon: What does the Dove Skin Vitalizer vibrator look like?
Okay, so we also have freaks right here on the home turf. Here I was thinking I was only supposed to use it on my face!
Some foreign country: Dove skin vitalizer sex toy
Now why didn't I think of that?
Salmiya, Al Kuwayt (Kuwait): Naughty teacher
Hamburg, Germany: Tails from the toilet
I can't, in my wildest imagination, guess why anyone would Google that.
Has this post made you feel more aware of what labels you give your posts? Will it change what you type in that label box in the future? Not me. I'll stick with keeping it real, because let's face it, this shit is funny!
