19 Apr Searchin’ Sundays…
I’m fascinated at the search terms that bring folks to my blog.
It’s an intimate look into the minds of my readers. (Assuming they actually stick around and check me out after clicking through…)
It feels a bit voyeuristic, to see an exact web search, mispellings and all. Occasionally, it creeps me out. I’ve seen stuff like my name and the word “husband” linked in a search. What’s that about? I’ve seen “Tog” and “TG” in searches. (Ha. That’s funny.) I’ll see the occasional search for Donyale Luna or “Rick Ross’s babymamma.”
But mostly, I just see my name. Since my web address has all that annoying middle initial stuff, and the whole .wordpress suffix , folks have to search to find my blog.
(Sidebar: you can now find me at plain old aliyasking.com. Yeah!)
For the past few weeks, one term has brought hundreds of folks to my site. More than my own name. Wanna guess? I’ll give you a hint:
No, silly! It’s not King Magazine!
It’s Stacey Dash.
Far and away, people end up on my blog because they’re looking for Ms. Dash.
Yesterday, on Saturday, the first really nice day on the Eastern Seaboard, I had a hunnid folks searching for Stacey Dash who ended up on my blog. Who are you people? What the heck were you doing inside on a nice day Googling this chick? I was inside too. But I had a reason.
Lots of people end up on my site after looking for this chick, too.
During Blog-o-rama, my boy Antz mentioned that I reminded him of this chick. I’ve never seen Flavor of Love or any of its outposts. But I’m dying to catch this girl on television so I can see if I need to go out to Queens and knock Antz out.
Is she famous? Why are so many folks searching for her? I found some semi-risque shots of her on a gossip website. But nothing Dash-esque. I’m stumped.
Highest rated post of late? My ode to King Magazine.
I’m not sure if people are checking out the post for my words–or Stacey’s picture.
I just checked search terms one more time…
I got two hits from people searching for “Mary Woodson” and “Al Green”…
Sigh. Can someone please show me how to scan an article so that I can post it here and it can still be readable. Sigh.
I’d be curious to know dear readers, how did you find me? Were you searching the Internet for Stacey Dash’s butt? Checking out my Facebook status update? Following my tweets? How’d you find other blogs you frequent?
I’d love to hear from you…
