As you may know, a lot of folks who have websites track their stats, visitors, etc. using Google Analytics. I do the same. I've been using it since I started the blog.
Google Analytics really does present a lot of info - stuff like where my visitors are from, what pages they looked at and for how long. A really interesting and even comedic feature for me is the Traffic Sources: Keywords category. It lists what terms were searched in Google that brought individuals to my site. Most searches are what you might expect – stuff like "Madballs," "Zombie Toy," "Bootleg Toys," etc.
Well, mixed in the bunch are totally off-the-wall surprises that I've been sharing on Twitter. Due to some fan reactions, I thought maybe I'd let you all in on it too. So, I'm gonna try something goofy on the blog and share a top-10 list of weirdo Google searches. Not sure if it'll be monthly or weekly or what. Maybe I'll just do it as funny things come up.
Here are the Top 10 weird search terms from March 1-7, 2009:
10. "battlestar galactica nude"
9. " just another happy meal"
8. "this guy is like the terminator"
7. " why are people scared of the abominable snowman"
6. "scary toys no fur gallery"
5. "ugly balls"
4. "big toys in ass"
3. "ass lips"
2. "claymation of clown smelling finger from ass"
(looks like Weirdo Toys gets a lot of 'ass')
... and my favorite....
1. "am i weird because i collect toys"
Yeah, I know #2 is pretty disturbing, but you have to admit, #1 is pretty funny.
You know what would be great? Some kind of screwed up scavenger hunt where the readers of the blog have to find toys that relate to these search terms. Or maybe a custom-toy contest. Man that would be freaky and hilarious.
