When I first started this blog, I was all about the number of hits I got. I would check my stats several times a day hoping to see a spike. As I have matured as a blogger, I am more interested in the amount of engagement on my posts rather than pure numbers.
However it doesn’t mean I don’t periodically check out my stats especially when I notice a larger than normal spike.
For whatever reason today I noticed that yesterday I got over 1000 hit spike from Yahoo search engines. I mean no one uses Yahoo search engines anymore so that is huge (haha j/k Yahoo). Seriously though I get little traffic from that source. A little investigation in what the image search term people were using to find my site came up with….
Cartoon You Stink
Now it would be interesting to know if that result was based on something I wrote or whether it was a mistaken snark remark that should have been “Cartoonist, you stink”. My feeling is that 1000 people didn’t actually look for that search term but it was bots instead. Though I don’t know a thing about all that.
What about you. Oddest search term someone has used to find your blog?
