a total sidenote (aka, music dressed like monkey!)

April 22, 2007 at 9:27 am (blog, blogging, interesting, life, personal, thoughts)

One of the cool things about WordPress is that you can track (to a certain extent) who is looking at your blog and how they got here. Well, not really – it would never tell me that, for instance, Jeff was looking at my blog from work, but it does let me know that two people clicked over from my website to here, which is interesting enough to keep me constantly checking the stats but uninformative enough to really tell me anything.

But my favorite thing: it tells you what search terms led someone to your blog. So I get to see that three people who searched for Amy Wilson wound up here. (Again, this tells me nothing, but it fascinates me to no end.) My neurotic and self-loathing side always pipes in and tells me that those searchers were probably looking for one of the many other Amy Wilsons out there and wound up here by mistake, so I’m especially thrilled when search terms like Amy Wilson Bellwether or Amy Wilson kitsch class or Amy Wilson drawing come up. I can officially take those as some sort of sign that the universe loves me and everything is okay.

But then, every once in a while, there are truly bizarre search terms which I think I love most of all. This morning, it was: music dressed like monkey. That’s fantastic. I have no idea what it means. But for now and forever, I want all of the googlers out there who are searching for music dressed like monkey to be led directly to this blog, period.

And so, for all that is good and googlerific in the world:
Music dressed like monkey!
Music dressed like monkey!
Music dressed like monkey!

Page hits on this thing are gonna go through the roof, I promise you.

More art later today. Just as soon as I can stop thinking of music dressed like monkey.

    Remember? It makes sense. There was that post about the traveling art show thing where you were talking about having something in conjunction with music and dressing up like monkeys and throwing “shit” at each other. I remember. Google remembers too.

    oh, i get it from that point of view. what i don’t get is why someone was *searching* for music dressed like a monkey. but yes – it makes sense why they ended up here, having once begun that search.

    That’s brilliant! I am inspired to write a poem … but not wanting to steal all your traffic I’ve entitled it “songs attired as if apes” 🙂
