November Search Terms

search enginesBack in July I posted a top ten search terms for my whole site:

    1 905 29.27% hawaiian flowers
    2 49 1.58% mexico
    3 47 1.52% bayport alameda
    4 32 1.03% safari
    5 31 1.00% parrot
    6 29 0.94% magic
    7 21 0.68% beer bottles
    8 20 0.65% vxworks
    9 17 0.55% detention centre
    10 17 0.55% generation 5 ipod

November’s results tell a surprisingly different tale:

    1 3270 25.49% darth vader
    2 2301 17.93% anakin
    3 1159 9.03% hawaiian flowers
    4 553 4.31% seahorse
    5 515 4.01% camels
    6 220 1.71% bears
    7 210 1.64% duckling
    8 153 1.19% meerkats
    9 146 1.14% dragon
    10 110 0.86% jedi

The Hawaiian flowers term is still there, and at roughly the same number of people searching, but now it is third place to a strong Star Wars theme! The overall number of hits coming from search engines has risen a lot too (as has the number of hits from their crawlers in the logs).

  1. Interesting… I’ve had similar experiences with my blog. The volume of traffic sems to vary enormously, in accordance with the Google Image search algoritm’s whim. Not that I mind overmuch. Almost none of the extra traffic results in comments and I’m sure there are many images pilfered from my blog being used in boring work douments and presentations the world over! 🙂
