I always get a little grin when I read the Keywords that other bloggers share from their stats. Some of them are downright funny. I've never done that kind of post because my Keywords are always pretty dull.
And they still are, in my opinion.
Aside from the folks who land on my blog because they specifically search for my blog ("eternal lizdom"), the rest of the list is kinda... meh.
ballet dancers plie
"jasmine trellis" trader joe's
baby playing tennis
balls with handles for kids
Since the list, while random, is boring, I thought I'd have some fun and go Google each of those Keywords to see what I found.
You can imagine that "ballet dancers plie" would result in a pretty broad set of results. And it did. I went scanned through several pages of search results and image results without seeing my blog. Refined it to include "lizdom" and found links to posts from 2009. Scratching my head over this one- especially since it brought multiple traffic to my site.
Since the broad sounding terms offer too much for me to sit and scroll through, I went for the more unique sounding one next.
"jasmine trellis" trader joe's - I don't see the Trader Joe's connection but there is a link to my blog in the first page of results.
So I guess keywords aren't something of interest for my blog. And now I feel bad that I wasted your time with this post since it netted nothing of interest.
Maybe if I posted about gold price or treatments for rheumatoid arthritis or Blue Ivy's godmother or nitrous oxide or right to work or Pat Sajak (all top search terms right now)... Nah, I don't think it will net anything interesting for a future post, either.
And here's how I feel after attempting this post.
