Those of you that have been computing for more than a week understand that search engines have little bot thingies that run around the vast internet world and find all those keywords, images, video clips, and sound bytes on web sites, blogs, and the like, and those search engines save and store their findings just in case someone just might want to know about something. So when you take a look at, say, the ClustrMap on this blog you may wonder why some folks have stopped by for a visit. Granted the new map doesn't show much, but last year's was pretty good.
I decided to investigate and here's some things I found out recently. Mentioning Mel Gibson got my blog as a result in quite a few searches, as did Newburyport. The funny one was the person who had used the words harmony AND squirt as the keywords in their search. Even Google's bot showed up in it's travels! Mentioning Sarah Palin got me nowhere. Too many hits in a search, I guess.
It sort of makes me want to tease the bots. A post of just interesting likelihood to be hits keywords. Will me saying that I have an interest in Cuban architecture get me any new and interesting readers? How about my love of classic ragtime? If you are out there folks, come and visit!
