Search Engine Round-Up

Like lots of us, I have a little widget on my blog that tells me how many people come here, how they get here, and what search terms send them to my blog.

The thing is, with a name like "Breathing In and Breathing Out," I sometimes feel a little worried that people looking for something totally innocent wind up here instead. (Same thing, strangely enough, goes for my other blog, Jigsaw Analogy.)

But there's a good batch of search terms today, so I get to do one of those fun lists of how people found me!

Google seems to REALLY think people should read the story Cheaters Never Prosper. Not sure why that's such a favorite, but people landed there after searching for the following:

  • smacked bare bottom

  • missy bottom hairbrush

  • her spanked her with the hairbrush ruler (hm. How does a hairbrush ruler work, exactly? And this searcher should get spanked for poor grammar!)

  • laura spanked in front of

  • you need to be spanked for your bad grades young lady (I wonder if they were disappointed to realize the story was about two adults, with no report cards at all?)

  • get the strap young lady

  • pull your pants down for a spanking

  • severe caning stories

  • severe caning (I think these last two might have been happier to find Collective Bargaining, but who am I to argue with Google?)

Then there are some of the usual terms:

  • spankings hurt (Well, isn't that kind of the point?)

  • spanking stories head girl (Imagine the school where "spanking stories" is the name of a house! What are the other houses? "bondage tales"? "figging fables"?)

  • i spank woman (me use grammar)

And then there are the ones that make me wonder whether the person was actually looking for something on, I don't know, BREATHING. (I suppose Google is not actually able to figure out content or intention, no matter how wise it seems....)

  • breathing out process

  • when breathing hurts

  • breathing in

  • breathing in and breathing out (These last two may have been actually looking for my blog. Hard to know for sure.)

I worry about the same thing! Fortunately, no off-topic keywords have shown up yet for me.

I certainly understand the value of Google analytics, but sometimes I think it just gives me more opportunity to worry (and I have plenty of opportunities already).

Oddly enough, it also worries me that websites can know what search terms that I used to find them... I'm not sure why. I guess it just reminds me once again that nothing online is really private... which makes it very hard to stay "out" as a spanko.


Nice list, I find it a bit of a daily treat looking at the key word thingy.
The best one that I have had so far is "spanking motorbikes".

Happy New Year! I just signed up for one of those stat counters that tells you how people got to your site, and somehow, people actually got to my site via finding on Yahoo Images the only 2 pictures of my bare bottom that exist in the world. Mortifying! Though I'm the clever one who posted them, so oh well. I tend to get creepy keyword searches, considering the word "little" is in my blog name. I've also brought in some people who were definitely looking for schoolhouses. Oops!
