I Am A Moron

Ever since I began blogging, eons and eons ago (well, long enough that you would have thought I'd figure a few things out by now), I've wondered why Google and I could not be friends. It's not like I'm dying for strange Googlers to drop in or anything. It's just that when other people make fun of the search strings that land people on their sites, I wondered why 1) I couldn't even Google my own name and a whole string of text to find my own site, and 2) I couldn't see the search strings that folks may have used to get here. So I got to looking again at my Blogger settings and LO! There was an option for that...I think it said something like, "would you like to allow Google and other search engines to crawl your site for search strings." And it was checked "No." Doh!

So now, coupled with the addition of a Sitemeter, I too can join in the fun.

And the first visitor from Google was looking for "chili made with mango," but they only stayed for 0 seconds, so I'm not sure what that was all about.

Oh, and now I can tell what all y'all are saying about me behind my back, so stop that! ;-)

At least you didn't lose your only set of car keys somewhere along 35 miles of rural mail route.

When the thing registers "0" it means they didn't read more than one entry or didn't scroll down, something like that -- at least that's what sitemeter says.

My most common search is "Does it snow in Virginia?" This seems to be a burning question the world over.

Jim, true enough. So we're both morons then. Misery loves company. ;-)

Sisiggy, well? Does it? I've always wondered.

Today's searches are more like it...folks looking for Viagra and Disasters...not in the same search string actually, but now that it reads like that, I can't help but chuckle a little. ;-)
