It’s been a good week for the blog. A mixture of referrals, internet searches and web forums have brought visitors to the site for a variety of reasons. The geocaching posts attracted geocachers, the hillwalking posts attracted hillwalkers and the Tryst Brewery post attracted, unsurprisingly, beer drinkers. The historical content of the “Lurking at the Broch and Castle” post attracted US genealogists and an early post about a New Year party attracted someone with an unsettling interest in my name…and rockets!
Such is life “on the blog”.
My site stats show me what people have typed into their search engine to reach my blog. This is proving to be a source of great entertainment.
Waves fife rhythm movement – the most obscure to date but most likely looking for The Rezillos
Nicky Forbes – one of the Rezillos
Skiing down Ben Ledi – as if I would!
Pub beer festivals Glasgow – We’re miles from soddin’ Glasgow
Robinson Crusoe Game Walkthrough – Go to a beach once…
Find Lochearnhead – an instruction to me…or the search engine?
Grassy bank – could be worse, could have been grassy knoll.
Ken Brown Rocket – Seriously worried…does it have my name on it!
Fatdog b&b – This is the most worrying of all. She better not be renting out her basket again!
However given the power the internet search engine, I’m now beginning to think that I should omit certain key words from my posts. For example “Terry Orrists”, “Boms” and “Gee …had” are probably no-nos, otherwise I’d be permanently peering out half opened shutters scanning the shadows beyond the street lights for “men in suits”. On the bright side as long as these shadowy individuals make the mistake of bringing their lunch with them, then we’re perfectly safe. No lunch has ever got past the Fatdog!
