search this....

At some point in most every bloggers posting life, there comes a time when he or she posts a list of things people are searching for when they come to their site.
 
I have resisted doing this.  But now I need your help.
 
Every week I'm getting more and more hits for people looking for "giant snake killers".
 
Tell me please, what is going on out there in cyber space.  Is this the name of a new movie?  Book? Rock band? Underground sex club? 
 
People must be so disappointed to discover my sad little story about the snake that I so ruthlessly killed.
 
Speaking of snakes...two things....
 
1) when my dad was ripping out the old front porch prior to building the new one, I overheard him saying excitedly "There's one. And another one. And another one!. There must be 20 of them!" 
 
I knew without even looking that he was talking about snakes.  Turns out there was a nest of them living under the porch.  Granted, these snake never get more than 6", but still!!!!
 
2) There was also a regular sized garter snake that made a quick escape from the demolition and took up residence in a new location. This snake likes to come out in the morning and sun himself in the weeds next to the steps.  When I come down the walk in the morning, I make enough of a disturbance to alert him that a human is coming and by the time I hit the steps, the only evidence of him is a slight rustling of the weeds as he very courteously disappears from view. He seems just as afraid of me as I am of him. Since he is so shy, I declared a moratorium on the snake killing. But I can't begin to tell you how my heart pounds as I pass by him everyday.  But this is a good exercise for me to help to conquer my fear of snakes.  I have also instructed Tom to please keep the weeds by the steps well trimmed as I don't want to encourage any of his snake friends to come around for a visit.
 
And before I forget there are two words/phrases that people search for quite a bit:  "panthyhouse" and "itchy balls".
 
I mispelled pantyhose one time and it has haunted me ever since.
 
As for "itchy balls" .....that is self-explanatory

It's really creepy the things people google, but even creepier when that search leads them to a blog...

What are you using as a stats site - and is it free?

My husband has a blog, and wrote an article about a funny business same, it's a store called Kid's Exchange, except the website, www.kidsexchange.com, looks like it's something else. Because of this post people are finding him when they Google 'kid sex', which disgusts both of us. Totally creepy.

And really, how do you pick that domain and not see the double meaning?!

It's interesting what phrases bring people to your site, isn't it? My favorite are the people who get to my blog via the search term "pregnancy constipation." I'm so proud!

Now you'll get lots of people looking for underground sex clubs.
