You found me....HOW?


I operate a small blog here. I don't get a lot of traffic. I do this for fun. And for social justice.

It pleases me when someone finds the info they're looking for on Lomas del Poleo, or Postville IA, or Cuba, or immigration, or whatever worthy cause when land on Border Explorer from their Google search.

It irks me that I get traffic every day for a little "toss-off post" I did last year that was a joke about Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Shrek. Sheesh. People, get a life!

But this one takes top honor! I don't know how it happened, but some Spaniard landed on Border Explorer looking for "Sexy." My stars and garters, I've died and gone to heaven.

P.S. It does not embiggen. You'll trust me on this--right? I mean it. The search was for "sexy." I'm not lying......darn....

I can't remember how I found you, but I'm always glad I did! Sorry about the weirdos that show up. . . .

Border Explorer said...

I don't remember either, but I'm just as glad we met, Jan. Now, let's get our blogger meet-up organized.

I like all my visitors, actually. I've hardly ever had any problem people here. It is so different than I expected.

People who think I'm sexy are always welcome! ;-)

We never know what search engines will link to our blogs! Congratulations, Sexy!

Border Explorer said...

Thanks, Nick! Heck, yeah, your comment makes my day!

Well you know we can blame Dada for my finding you! Now the question is has he been traveling in Spain lately?

ps, I don't know why, but I always find the word, sexy, weird. Sex I understand, but sexy? How to define? Who's the expert? Can we scientifically discover what is sexy? Have I said the word enough in this comment to generate you some more google searches?

D.K., that was my LOL for the day, times 10! You are hilarious, Girlfriend!

Dusty said...

LOL!!! It's amazing what folks are looking for sometimes when they land on my blog.

I know, it's weird what seems to generate traffic. I wrote about some Hawaiian rules of life ("Kimo's Rules") once, and that gets me traffic all the time. The other thing that draws people to my blog, strangely, is "fake diseases." I wrote about a funny program that lets you generate fake disease names - must have been two years ago by now - and I'm always seeing searches for "fake diseases" bringing people to my blog. Who knew so many people wanted to know fake diseases?

These "search" stories fascinate me. Occasionally SueJ of Nailing Jello on the Wall will do an entire post on recent searches that led people to her blog. I wish everyone did that.

Thanks for sharing yours. Any others?

Dear "Sexy":

Dada's Dally is a small blog that owes 82% of its hits (or about 54,000+) to my inability to spell "Avastin" - the drug.

If you can imagine the tens of thousands of Google hits from people seeking info on this drug who can spell, there are only a few sites spelling "Avistan" correctly for all the misspellers out there. I still get hits regularly based on a mistake and it's been a boon to my blog.

I'm currently working on a blog on the music, life and times of former Beetle, John Lennin.

I swear, there's no end to the depravity on the internets.

(You're waiting for me to say "thank goodness", aren't you?)
