So, if you have a WordPress blog, you know that when you go to look at your stats, if you scroll down a little bit, you can see the search terms people used that directed them to your site. As you probably also know, I have a morbid fascination with the stats page, and with the search terms in particular, which occasionally surfaces in random posts like this one.
I can’t really figure out how most of you got here, because I don’t ever see many search terms listed. Half the time if there were any, WordPress doesn’t see fit to print them, which leads me to ask what are you people searching on the internet? And also how are those things landing you at my blog?
Even when WordPress lets me in on the words searched, I often find myself asking the same questions, because so frequently not only do I have no idea how the combination of words led to my blog, but I also don’t even know what they mean.
Also, when I take those search terms and sort of hesitantly insert them into my browser, That’s a Jenn Story rarely if ever shows up.
Have any of you plumbed the depths of the mystery that is WordPress stats? Would you care to enlighten the rest of us?
