Every week I look through the web statistics of my photography portfolio website and my photo blog (this one) to analyze what drives traffic to my sites so I may learn how to produce more attractive content and figure out better ways to share with my various forms of social media. Much like a race car driver or athlete may look at tapes from old competitions to see how they can improve their game, I do the same with my web analytics. In time, I noticed an alarming trend of increasingly strange web keyword searches that would lead to my site (thanks to my web stats). For those that aren’t web savvy: If someone enters in a keyword such as “Douglas Sonders Photography” into their google/yahoo/msn/etc search engine and click any of the links that pop up that lead to one of my sites, it shows up on my web traffic statistics. It has become so strange and funny, in fact, that I have decided to do a weekly post sharing the top search engine keyword searches used to find my blog in the past 7 days.
Please enjoy the first installment (these are 100% actual keyword searches that led people to my site)
- “what drives my workaholic girlfriend” I will steer you in the wrong direction, my friend.
- “living with a workaholic girlfriend” I’m starting to think someone may have a relationship issue on their hands.
- “douglas sonders sexiest man in dc” Haha! Somebody is playing a joke on me.
- “how to become a professional commercial wedding photographer fstoppers torrent” Stealing is bad kids, m’kay?
