Google Me!


Every once in a while, I see a funny post about referrers--you know, other blogs that have referred a visitor or even a particular Google search that returned your web site as a match. These posts sparked my interest. Curious to know who my top referrers were, I decided to study my visitor statistics a little more carefully.

As it turns out and not surprisingly, Google is one of my top referrers. Apparently if you type "bird poop", "hypnotic martini," or "Adolph Hitler and bikini waxing" you're more likely to find me. (Aren't those of you new to my site sorry you missed that last post?)

During the last Olympics, people hoping to find information on "Vinko Bogataj" a.k.a
"the agony of defeat ski jumper" were probably less then thrilled to discover a dating and relationship blog instead of a sports story. But for the life of me, I still cannot explain why a search on "where you can buy a Chi Wawa in New Jersey" returned my site. If only the person had been interested in buying an overactive Cocker Spaniel named Charlie, then we could have done business.

However, one referrer, which provided large numbers of European, predominately French visitors, was the most curious of all. Why I was so popular in France? It wasn't as if I'd ever posted anything on Jerry Lewis. So, I dug a little further, found the referrer, and created the necessary password to access the site. Despite never having taken French, I found the source of my popularity.

There I was-- photograph and all-- the topic on a fetish discussion board for people who like women with bald heads.

No, Egan, I am not making this up. There will be no snickering from you, Utenzi!

Is it only me? Or, doesn't it seem even more perverse that shaving my head to raise money for cancer got me more exposure than just the skin on the top of my head? But regardless of the charitable cause...

I'm still featured on fetish website.

Mother would be so proud.

C'est la vie mon amie. Sometimes you never know where your name will show up online. That's why I use "Egan", my alias so nobody can track me. I figure speaking French will only keep me hidden for so long. The picture included with this post is curious.

I Love That!

(The Fact that your photo is featured on The Site. Not The Fetish.)

Hmm the picture of you bald? Nope can't believe that is on a website. However I will send you the link of the site that has you in that pink dress.

That is cool and creepy all at once! ;-) In the obvious ways of course.

Amazing what one finds by taking a closer look at one's site stats. I recently had a lurker searching for "Sophie Milman & Big breast"! Because I've written about Sophie and her music, I'm listed on that google search. I hope that reader wasn't too disappointed once he found himself in my blog...for an hour! Hmmmmm...

Where shall we meet for Happy Hour tomorrow?

*CHEERS*

Oh, the good old Google refering. I have some crazy ones myself. But, I found your blog on Delightful Blogs, right underneath mine. :)

That is so funny! You’ll find my blog by Googeling “ear infection”. How depressing isn’t that?! And who knows: maybe you got some new readers from that fetish site that likes you… One of the things that amaze me is how small our world seam when you can find people all over the world by just Googeling something obscure. I like that. Makes me feel like connected somehow.

AMS said...

Hmmmmm was not that your mission when you started the blog??!

Exposure is exposure, Diane dear. And I am giggling a little--though the appeal of a bald pate certainly escapes me.
