Wow today is my 8TH VOLUME of 7 Quicktakes Friday! I can’t believe I have been doing these for 2 months! When I first started reading other peoples 7QT I thought they were cute but I was currently doing a Top 10 Tuesday Link-Up. The idea of doing list posts two days a week was daunting. At the time I was also posting a lot of shopping trips on Fridays and didn’t want to post too many times a day. Since I am currently only shopping a few times a month I decided a Top 7 list was WAY easier to write than a Top 10 List. Plus it was a Catholic Link-up and I was trying to get more Catholics to find my blog, so it was a WIN-WIN!
Last week as 2011 came to an end I was looking at my Site Statistics and looking at all the keywords people have searched to find my blog. Here are 7 of the STRANGEST keywords! This list is in the order of MOST STRANGEST word to LEAST STRANGEST word.
Jen @ Conversion Diary for hosting this awesome list link-up for Catholic Bloggers!
— 1 —
SEX UNDER THE CHRISTMAS TREE – I have NO IDEA why this phrase brought a reader to my blog but I hope they found what they were looking for 😉
— 2 —
I HATE THE NEW ROMAN MISSAL – I got a BIG kick out of this one. I wrote a lot of posts about the new roman missal in the last few months. I guess this person wanted to find others that hated it. I didn’t write ANYTHING hateful about it because that is a BIG NO NO in the blogosphere. I hope this person has come to LOVE it!
— 3 —
7UP NEXT TO CANDY – I have NO IDEA about this one. The only thing I can think of is in one of my “Cash Back Friday’s” posts I bought 7up and candy?
— 4 —
VIRGINS – When your looking at a list of words and see VIRGINS it is a tad strange HOWEVER I did write a review on Virgin Diaries so it makes a little bit of sense.
— 5 —
TRANSPARENT SNOWFLAKE (and other variations of snowflake) – I had a plugin on my blog during December where it snowed on my blog so I’m guessing there were some tags in the images. I took the plugin off because several people said it made my blog slow loading.
— 6 —
BEAUTY TIPS BLOGS WITH GUEST POST – I did have some guest posts in the last few months HOWEVER I haven’t really talked about Beauty Tips. I would be the WORST person on the planet to talk about Beauty Tips (just ask my sister). I did however find a TON of great deals on make-up the last few months.
— 7 —
WALGREENS CATHOLIC – I have NO IDEA how these two words would EVER even go together. I don’t know anything that is “Catholic” about Walgreens. If anyone else does please let me know! However, I do talk about Walgreens and Catholic things quite often.
Those were the 7 STRANGEST keywords used to find my blog. If you don’t have google analytics (GA) set up I would recomend it. You can learn a lot about your blog from the information in GA. If you would like some help please let me know and I will help you out.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about Gifts for Couponers I recieved a TON of hits from a number of different combinations of “Gifts for couponers.” That is good to know I will have to revise that post next christmas. I hope everyone had a wonderful start to 2012 I set several “Blogging Goals” that I would like to acomplish and am excited about!

P.S. Please pardon my awful formatting I am sick of arguing with wordpress tonight!

Oh those are excellent.
My most interesting search terms of last year are a tie between “things jehovah’s witnesses can’t do”, “manure girls” and “find the guy who will hold your hand in public”.
I suspect at least one of those people was somewhat surprised as the site actually loaded up.

LOL! I loved these- a great laugh to start the morning! The only sort of funny ones I’ve had so far is “pcos peanut butter”. I guess someone was trying to find out if it was a recommended food for PCOS or not lol. The other was “hi my name is stacy” which I’m not sure why anyone would google!

Yes there are some weird ones that come up. Someone suggested to do this to make some of the “end of the year” posts more interesting. It was fun to do 🙂
