Who Are You People?: A Search Terms Roundup

Reviewing one’s blog statistics can be a real ego boost (“Yay! Thanks for the ratings bump, Kevin Tydlaska!”) or ego killer (“Wahh! Did I weird people out by talking about my Daddy issues?”)

But mostly it’s just confusing. I have an MBA in Marketing and I still can’t figure out exactly who reads, why they read, and how they get here.

Despite my efforts, I can’t predict which posts will land, how many people will see my facebook links, or which time/day is best for posting.

Some days I’m just like…

And then the stats are like…

your work is bad

Regardless, there’s one constant I can always count on: amusing search terms.

When someone finds my blog via google, I get to see what they searched. Let’s take a look at a selection, in order of ascending weirdness:

- back to home blog
Oh, so close. This has been searched multiple times. Not sure if this is what you were looking for, but welcome.

-your mother doesn’t work here
By far the most popular search term. I guess a lot of people have slovenly coworkers.

-improv cult
Yep, pretty proud of that one.

-cat two timing
This is apparently a common phenomenon.

-someone eat a lot / “getting fat” / I’m getting fat / getting fat blog
Thanks a lot, daddy.

-man flu sexist / definition man flu / man flu aka cold / woman flu jokes / man flu jokes
My man flu post unwittingly attracts users from all parts of the sexist spectrum.

-darcy carden and husband
While I’m an admitted stalker of D’Arcy Carden, I don’t know anything about her husband. Yet.

-new sitcom women moves back home
I believe you were looking for How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life), and I wish I’d written it.

-who invented kool-aid
I still don’t know.

-wife excuese not cleaning
Was this searched by a wife looking for usable excuses? Or a husband that doesn’t want to put up with her crap anymore?

-embarrassing lesbian
That would be you, Rae.

-otak liburan
Google tells me this is Indonesian for “vacation brain”. I’ve sort of got that.

-when can i get a bra in the palisades mall
Not where. When.

-bible quotes for improvisation
Nope. I should probably learn some though.

-door confrontations don’t work
Is “door confrontations” a saying? I’m just picturing someone yelling at a door.

-woman fail

-how to be a spiteful bitch

-tina fey leather
(shrug) I’m okay with that.

-independent woman will smith
That’s totally how I see him too.

Have you had your work misconstrued by the masses?


  1. I get SO many searches for Tina Fey nude!! Wonder if she knows how coveted she is?!

  2. “how to be a spiteful bitch” is very funny to me for some reason. I’d need help with that, too.

  3. Ha! I’m kind of scared to know what search terms bring people to my blog.

    Maybe it’s better I don’t know. Then again, I do like stalkers……
