I signed up for sitemeter.com to keep track of the views and referrals for my blog. I didn’t like my previous meter… it tracked each time I came on, and when I back clicked it counted again. Plus, it gave me no statistics, and I could never remember what my “visit” count was before!
Sitemeter, while not perfect, is SO much better.
And, it’s been quite amusing to see what people have googled to find my blog.
Twice in the last week someone has Googled “Krista from the bachelor” Obviously, I’m not a bachelor, and I’m 100% sure they were actually looking for TRISTA the BACHELORETTE… however I did a few blog posts at the end of the Bachelor last season (remember The *gag* Bachelor?).
Also, someone Googled Suicide “Heaven and be with Jesus”
This one scared me. It liked to my “Suicide watch at Blimpie” blog post. I’m so thankful that I did honor God in my post even though it was very tongue in cheek, but was a reminder that we should ALWAYS watch our blog content because we never know what circumstance someone will be in when they cross paths with our posts.
There are others, including my Dare to Run post… that have garnered many google links too:-)
So… fellow bloggee’s… if you track referral links, care to share the weirdest, the most touching, or scariest searches that linked to your site?
