Stop looking for the pictures. There aren’t any.
Always among the last to fully explore any technology I might be using, I recently stumbled across the “Stats” page for my blog, and became obsessed with the search terms people are using to find this blog. As might be expected, most are variations on my name and the words “Fobots”, “Robots”, and “Octomom”. OK, I made that last one up to draw more traffic to the site just now. But the point is, every once in a while, the phrase that leads some misguided soul to this blog is so bizarre that I have to wonder why someone’s looking for it, and how in the world did those words all come together in one website? Here are a few of my recent favorites;
old circus freaks
free embrodery (sic) designs bulldozer
robots searching for a light
why doesn’t it look like the blueprint
how to make hash
And, most recently:
pictures of women covered in latex paint
Mind you, this is just one month’s worth of search terms. Who knows what I’ve missed in months past. So whoever you are out there, I hope you find what you’re looking for, ’cause it ain’t here. And I’d like to challenge you other bloggers out there: what’s the weirdest search term that ever led anyone to your site?
PS–We will return to our “Fobot of the Week” program later this week. Just got back from NYC. Too tired and busy to post anything last week.
