How People Find Hippie Blog

It's always interesting to see, through referral stats, how people find this blog. Links from other blogs, and links from blog-related stuff is quite common, but the google searches that people do, and find me, are sometimes quite intriguing.

I get a ridiculous number of hits through people searching for anal bleaching, for verruca cures, and for how to give used stamps for charity, amongst other things.

Today's intriguing in-link is that I am #1 in the search results for give me a fuckin idea to eat in ipswich. And the post that gives me that top spot? Oh yes, the murder of prostituted women in Ipswich. Go figure.

These are the search terms people use most often to find my blog:

* Don't dress your dog in a muumuu

* Jeannette Wall
* Glass Castle notes

* Satellite Feeds

*pr e t een n ip pl e (separated out incorrect so as not to lead them here)

and people also click through from my flickr.com page to my blog. Sometimes I have to wonder what people were thinking using either superspecific or v. broad search terms. I force myself to not look at stats often. It can become a kind of obsessive thing if I let it get away from me.
