Search Engine Terms…with a twist

***adult content***

Welcome to the March edition of: Search Engine Terms. In case you’re just joining us lemme give you a quick run through. Once a month I share some of the search engine terms that bring peeps to Bookish. Some of them are funny,others are perplexing, a few are WTF?!? and some are what show up every day. Just like I did last month I’ve included my reactions to most of these, but this time they’re under the term in (parenthesis).

This past month 1899 search engine terms referred someone to a post(s). Even tho I didn’t tally them the last time I can tell you that the number is higher. Twitter used to be my main referrer, but not anymore…Hey! What’s up with that my twitter peeps?!?

Anyhoo…here’s what caught my eye…

Search Engine Terms #2…

Back in December I shared some of the search engine terms that have brought people to Bookish Temptations. The number of visits via search engine terms has  grown a lot since BT began, versus those brought to the site from what used to be the majority ie.  Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, a link from another site, etc.

That of course is good news because it means that we’re reaching people who might not have found us otherwise, and that if they like what they see they’ll return.  All blogs need new viewers to continue growing, and I’m really happy to say that Bookish Temptations has seen a very steady growth in site visits since it began.

There’s a great team of people here who put a lot of effort into making BT a place you’ll want to visit over and over. We appreciate each and every visit…each comment left…all the RT’s on twitter, and everything our faithful readers do to support us.

That being said I thought it might be fun this time to give you my reactions to some of the search engine terms…they are unedited btw and my comment appears in  parentheses…

Last but not least…here are the top 3 search engine terms that have brought someone to Bookish Temptations:

bookish temptations, “gabriel’s inferno”, fifty shades freed 

We’ll do this again in a couple of months cuz I know I’ll get some more good ones, and just in case you were wondering…yes, I have googled many of these myself after seeing them because sometimes I just don’t get the connection…sometimes I find it, but other times I’m still left wondering. Now, go forth and search engine term away…it may show up here someday 😉

Search Engine Terms

I’m a curious type of gurl. I like to know the why’s and how’s of things. It’s probably why I majored in Psychology and practiced it for 10 years. I wonder about all kinds of things, and let’s be honest, lots of the things I think about  are not earth shattering. For example, I often wonder why people pick the places to sit that they do when they have a choice. Like in a classroom. Some people always gravitate to the same seating area. I myself almost always chose to sit near but not in the front, and fairly close to the door.  The more comfortable I was with the Professor…NO! Not that Professor…the closer I would venture away from the door, and more toward the middle.

Anyway, I think about stuff like that all the time, so naturally I’m somewhat curious as to what might bring people to visit my blog. Some peeps come because they’re my friends and we have a common interest in books, authors, fantasy boyfriends, etc. and they’re supportive of me. Some people come because they think I’m entertaining in the way I present the topics I write about. Some come out of curiosity, or because my site was recommended or twittered about. Then there’s the ones who come because they’ve typed in a phrase in a search engine and up popped Bookish Temptations .

The platform I use is wordpress, and one of the features is a page called site stats. It gives all kinds of info to me every day. It tells me how many site visitors I have, and what posts they visited. This is important to know because it lets me know what topics you guys like best. It tells me who referred the visits, ie. whether it was via twitter, facebook, search engines, etc.  That’s as specific as it gets tho. It doesn’t tell me who came,  just where they came from. Some of you just heaved a big sigh of relief. That’s ok, we all have our secret guilty pleasures, and I’m certainly ok with being one of yours 😉

There is another box that is more specific as to the search engine terms that are used to bring people here, and most of it is not unexpected. Mostly it’s certain books, certain authors, certain characters, certain topics, but every few days I’m surprised by at least one term or another. I have to wonder how surprised the viewer  is once they get here as well.  I thought it might be fun to show you some typical as well as untypical search engine terms that have been used.

Just in case your curious…like me.
