Fun with Our Site Statistics!
Since we've made the decision to move our site onto GeoCities' GeoPlus plan (love those intercaps), we've been able to access all sorts of interesting bits of information about the dozens of people who visit our site on a daily basis. We know, for example, that Google is apparently the only search engine people use to visit us (which is fine, since it's pretty much the only search engine anyone uses for anything). We know that 43.8% of our visitors have a screen resolution of 1024 x 768, not that we need to. And we were able to see through Rich Bunnell's computer screen to discover that he spends quite a bit of time at the computer making comments about the sites he visits to an attentive audience of stuffed animals. One of the most amusing features we can now access, however, is the "top search word" used to locate each page on our site in search engines (Google). Mainly, the benefit of this is to confirm that it's a good thing that we don't really tailor our site to what people want, if the keywords people type in to get here are any indication. More often than not, the searches people perform are for items we do not feature on our page (e.g., "tracy chapman chords one hundred years"), but sometimes they just come up bizarre. Below are some of the funnier keywords people have used to get here, along with a seemingly arbitrary percentage of visitors who did so for each page. If you like random crap as much as we do, enjoy! We'll try to update this whenever we remember (and the top search word for each page often changes, so if you see four or five entries for a.html or something, that's why).
26.37% typed "dave mathews a homosexual" to locate a.html
40.94% typed "humming/pictures" to locate books.html
100.00% typed "cjfordalphalinkcomau" to locate comments.html, which suggests that one of our visitors is something of a narcissist.
34.16% typed "" to locate i.html [sic]
100.00% typed "funniest prindle review" to locate musiclinks.html. Apparently, they thought that Google would make a value judgement about which of our colleague's writings is the most amusing.
53.09% typed "did someone hang themself in the filming of wizard of oz" to locate p.html
34.90% typed "sound files of shakespeare's profane words" to locate w.html
30.12% typed "women fellatio messageboard" to locate a.html
26.88% typed "candyland symbolism" to locate t.html
32.17% typed "jamming scissors genitals" to locate p.html
70.81% typed "tracy chapman-chords" to locate this page, ironically enough.
44.01% typed "red hot chilly peppers guitar chords" to locate a.html, turning the band's name into a delightful oxymoron!
43.83% typed "house" to locate o.html
